Aside from Iceland, filming will take place in Budapest, Hungary, this year. Through the second season, fans hope that the series can bring some faithfulness to the source material into play. Despite the fact that the first season gained much praise for action scenes and acting, it still disappointed some viewers. There is the impression that it did not capture the hearts of the fans of the game it adapted from. Nevertheless, adding Joseph Morgan and Cristina Rodlo to the cast may just mean a step into this path through their new characters.
