‘Doctor Who’ Casts Varada Sethu For Season 2

Doctor Who has cast Varada Sethu (Andor) for Season 2 as the Doctor’s new companion, alongside current companion Ruby Sunday. The series is currently in production and slated to debut in 2025 on Disney+ and the BBC in the UK.

“I feel like the luckiest person in the world,” shared Sethu in a statement. “It is such an honor to be a part of the Whoniverse, and I’m so grateful to the whole Doctor Who family – because that is what they are – for welcoming me with open arms and making me feel so at home. I couldn’t ask for a better team than Ncuti and Millie to be on this adventure with. This is SO much fun!”

Most recently, she portrayed Cinta Kaz in the Disney+ Original series Andor. Her additional credits include Jurassic World Dominion, Annika and Strike Back.

“I first worked with Varada on a BBC production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream, and it’s a joy to welcome her on board the TARDIS. Right now in the studio, shooting for 2025, we’ve got Ncuti, Millie and Varada fighting side by side–we need all three because the stakes are higher than ever,” exclaimed Russell T Davies, showrunner, executive producer and writer.
