  • Megan Follows has landed a recurring role on the drama's upcoming third season. She recently starred for four seasons in The CW's Reign.
  • She will play Michelle, Wynonna Earp's recently "resurrected" mother. On the casting, showrunner Emily Andras said, "Megan Follows is one of Canada's most beloved and versatile performers, and we are beyond thrilled to have her onboard for such an iconic role. Her ferocity and fearlessness will fit in fabulously with the rest of our phenomenal cast."
  • Kyra Zagorsky has joined the drama's sixth season in a recurring role. She starred for two seasons in Syfy's Helix and recurred on Syfy's Continuum.
  • She will play Athena, a former member of the League of Assassins. Bearing a scar across her face as an example of her fearlessness and determination, she aims to maintain the legacy of Malcolm Merlyn (John Barrowman), her fallen commander. She sees anyone who was once associated with him as a potential threat.
  • Peter Mullan is set for a recurring role on the drama's upcoming second season. He was Emmy nominated for his supporting role on SundanceTV's Top of the Lake and currently stars in Netflix's Ozark.

  • She will play Jennifer Sheridan, Severide's (Taylor Kinney) warm, scripture-quoting and church-going mother. At one point she partied like it was 1979, but she has now embraced the straight and narrow path. While she may claim to have moved on from the past and her messy divorce from ex-husband Benny (guest star Treat Williams), old habits die very hard.
