Who is in the cast of “Hilda”?

Not exactly what you would call a star-studded cast but those with ears like a Bat may recognize the voice of Bella Ramsay who plays the role of fan favorite Lady Lyanna Mormont of Bear Island in Game of Thrones

Character Actor / Actress Where have I heard/seen them before?
Hilda Bella Ramsey Game of Thrones, The Worst Witch, Holmes and Watson
Frida Ameerah Falzan-Ojo So Awkward
Mum Daisy Haggard Doctor Who, I give it a year, Black Mirror
Alfur Rasmus Hardiker Your highness, Krypton, Thunderbirds Are Go
David Oliver Nelson Home Fires (UK)

Will there be a Season 2?

It’s possible but they’ll be creating their own Stories and Adventures for “Hilda” if they decide to go for Season two as most of the episodes listed in season one are adventures straight from the comic series. It would be great for Author Luke Pearson if they brought him on board to be a writer for the show but for now, watch this space and we’ll definitely be updating fans of the show if there will be a season 2!
