Kelly Curran (Turner), Douglas Stills (Baudin), Celia Keenan-Bolger (Mrs. Bruce), Michael Cerveris (Watson), Erin Wilhelmi (Adelheid Weber), Patrick Page (Richard Clay) and Sullivan Jones (T.Thomas Fortune) will also be series regulars in Season 2.

Casting directors Bernard Telsey and Adam Caldwell teased in a new interview with Variety that more Broadway and Tony-award winning actors will be joining the show for Season 2.

"It's still a part of the recipe of what we think works because of the talent and the experience," Caldwell said about how two Tony winners will be featured in Season 2.

"It can keep expanding. We might get a little bit more of a glimpse into the Black elite world. Historical figures pop up too and it's fun to jump in and play around in the sandbox with everyone," he continued about Season 2.
