Well, we know little about them, but The Hollywood Reporter is telling us that the series will be dealing with some new faces next year. We knew that there would be some shifts in casting with the show, in order to keep things fresh, but these are certainly a cryptic and scattered array of casting selections. Via casting calls, the following are confirmed:
– A Boyfriend for Claire (Sexy, it says)
– A 28-year old Black Mother
– A Surrogate for Niki’s Son
– An Irish Mobster (Black Donnellys cast, hello!)
– A Twentysomething Latina
I worry about this, only because none of these character sounds all that interesting outside of an Irish Mobster. I also worry about the show’s ability to balance these character arcs: Hana, the Wireless girl, came and went so fast (Before showing up in Five Years Gone) that she didn’t even matter in the end. Was that really worth the short time we spent on her? I think the show needs to stick with its own characters, at some point.
Either way, this list remains tentative, and we can only speculate for now how these people might come into play…and what powers they might have.
