Quantico Season 2 returns later this year and they will be introducing new characters who will be joining Alex Parrish (Priyanka Chopra) at the CIA.
When the series returns, Alex will leave the FBI to join the CIA, so some of the old cast members will not be returning. But of course, new faces will be joining the fold and two new characters have been announced.
First is a character named Lydia who is described by TVLine as ?Jessica Jones by night and Jessica Chastain in Zero Dark Thirty by day.? There is no casting announcement yet for the character, but she will be played by an African American woman in her late 20s, who is a new agent eager to prove herself. IBTimes adds that she is also ?sharp and sexy,? willing to do everything in her power to get what she wants.
The second new character is Harry Doyle who will be portrayed by Russel Tovey (Being Human). He will possibly be connected to the CIA. His character is described as a ?combination of Artful Dodger and Thomas Crown who can be anything he wants.?
In a report by BreatheCast, creator Josh Safran shared how excited he is to work with Tovey. ?Ever since being introduced to him in ?The History Boys? 10 years ago, I?ve hoped to work with Russell. It?s been an honor for the writers and myself to be able to create this role specifically for him,? Safran said.
Meanwhile, talking to EW, Safran explained how the upcoming season will be different from the first one. ?We have new stories to tell, and there will be returning cast members, but Season 2 is definitely more of a new novel than the next chapter,? Safran said. ?It’s like, instead of a sequel that continues the story, [we follow] the character who?s been through what they?ve been through but further down their road. So yes, there will be new people, new circumstances, but also returning people.?
ABC has yet to announce the official air date of the second season so keep an eye out for more news and updates of Quantico Season 2 here on TheBitbag!
