  • After recurring throughout the first three season, Matthew Rauch has been promoted to series regular for the drama's upcoming fourth season. He plays Clay Burton, Kai Proctor's (Ulrich Thomsen) multi-faceted and deeply complicated bodyguard and right-hand man. Additionally, Casey LaBow has joined the season in the recurring role of Maggie, wife to a local leader of the Aryan Brotherhood, who desperately wants a better life for her and her son.
  • Necar Zadegan (Girlfriends' Guide to Divorce) and Lyndon Smith (Parenthood) have booked recurring roles on the drama's upcoming second season. Zadegan will play Shayna Velez, a former Lt. Colonel, now Chief of Staff to Tobias Shepherd (David Morrissey), head of Globel Security Commission's threat assessment center. Strong, smart, opinionated, her agenda doesn't always jive with her boss's - which may bring her into direct conflict with Molly (Halle Berry). Smith will play JD Richter's (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) estranged and rebellious daughter.
  • Kiki Sukezane (The Yokai King) has been cast as a series regular on the upcoming limited event series starring Jack Coleman and Zachary Levi. No details were immediately released about the character she will be playing.
