Another Netflix Original series has seemingly set its cast. There is definitely some serious talent behind it.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Netflix has added four more cast members to the Kate Sackhoff-led sci-fi drama, Another Life. The series, created by Being Erica‘s Aaron Martin, follows astronaut Niko Breckenridge (Sackhoff), who leads a mission to discover the origins of an alien artifact.
The new cast members are Tyler Hoechlin (Teen Wolf, Arrowverse), Justin Chatwin (Shameless), Samuel Anderson (Doctor Who), and Elizabeth Faith Ludlow (The Walking Dead). Also joining the project is Omar Madha, who will direct the first two episodes. Selma Blair has been previously cast.
Hoechlin will play Ian Yerxa, who is “he former commander of the ship Niko now leads”. Chatwin will play Niko’s husband, Wallace, who is “a member of the United States Interstellar Command that seeks out life elsewhere in the universe.”
Anderson plays William, a sentient AI that “has the entirety of human knowledge at its disposal.” Ludlow will play Niko’s second in command, Cas Isakovic.
Currently, there’s no set release date for Another Life.
