  • Sophia Bush has been cast in a recurring role on the upcoming comedy starring Michael Cimino and Rachel Naomi Harris. She previously starred for nine seasons in The WB/The CW's One Tree Hill and four seasons in NBC's Chicago P.D.
  • She will play Veronica, the new girlfriend of Mia's (Hilson) father. Chic and sophisticated, she runs a non-profit devoted to helping women. Friendly and easy to like but can be strong-willed and tough when she needs to be.
  • Olivia Scriven has landed a recurring role on the upcoming limited series starring Cate Blanchett. She previously starred for eight collective seasons in the Canadian dramas Degrassi: The Next Generation and Degrassi: Next Class.
  • She will play Liza Schlafly, the daughter of Phyllis Schlafly (Blanchett).

He recently appeared in the limited series The Hot Zone on National Geographic and The Spy on Netflix.

St. Clair co-created and starred in USA's Playing House, which ran for three seasons.
  • Emmerich will play Kick Grabaston, Chief of Staff of the U.S. Air Force, Mark's (Carell) old boss and internal rival. Resentful that Space Force is not under his command, he takes every opportunity to dominate and undermine Mark.
  • Willard will play Fred Naird, Mark's father. Sharp as a tack but frail, he is caring for his senile wife and starting to make bad decisions, such as crawling under his house to check the pipes without telling anyone.
  • St. Clair will play Kelly King, a forthright civilian contractor helping Mark build the new base in Colorado. She hates incompetence and children for the same reason.
  • Lela Loren is set for a recurring role on the drama's upcoming third season. She previously starred for five seasons in Starz's Power. She next stars in the upcoming second season of Netflix's Altered Carbon, which is still awaiting word on a premiere date.
  • She will play Marguerite Olsen. While not native to Lakeside, she has become part of the fabric of the town as a trusted reporter for the local paper, a committed single mother of two and a no-nonsense property manager. She is understandably wary of the pain vulnerability brings, but when Shadow (Ricky Whittle) moves into her building, he begins to chip away at her defenses and uncover a side to Marguerite she thought she'd locked away for good.
  • Zosia Mamet has joined the cast of the upcoming drama starring Kaley Cuoco. She previously starred for six seasons in HBO's Girls and in the Netflix limited series Tales of the City. She has also guest starred on Netflix's Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, FXX's You're the Worst and ABC's Stumptown.
