Blizzard have officially announced the full on-screen talent lineup for Season 2 of the Overwatch League, with some surprising changes to the cast that manned the helm during Season 1.

Lots of Overwatch fans have been waiting to see if their favorite broadcasters would be making a return to the competition, with many familiar faces confirmed to be appearing throughout Season 2.


But, there are a few members of the Season 1 broadcast team who we won’t be seeing during the new season, with some big replacements lined up in their stead.

Notable by their absences are Andrew ‘ZP’ Rush and Alex ‘Goldenboy’ Mendez, who both appeared in Season 1 but will not feature as permanent members of the team when the new season starts.

Taking their place are Wolf ‘Wolf’ Schröder and Seth ‘Achilios’ King, who both join the Overwatch League team after spells casting in South Korea. They will feature alongside Christopher ‘MonteCristo’ Mykles, Erik ‘DoA’ Lonnquist, Mitch ‘Uber’ Leslie, Matt ‘Mr X’ Morello, Auguste ‘Semmler’ Massonnat and Robert ‘hexagrams’ Kirkbride as the eight OWL casters.
