“Quantico” has some new recruits. Even though Alex has graduated training for the FBI, her move to the CIA means she’ll meet plenty of new people. These are just a few of the series regulars that have been added to Season 2 of the ABC drama.
Dayana Mampasi — Actress Pearl Thusi will play this type-A lawyer, Deadline reports. Dayana graduated from Harvard and now works at her parents’ firm in Boston. However, she has trouble fitting in. The real question is how does this lawyer fit into Alex’s new mission with the CIA?
Owen Hall — “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” alum Blair Underwood will play this CIA officer, TVLine reports. He’ll portray a charming character that all the new CIA agents want to learn from. However, he might have a not-so-respectable reason for working with so many newbies.
Harry Doyle — Actor Russell Tovey will take on this role, but it isn’t clear if he is working for the government or being targeted by them. After all, it sounds like he’s a thief. “Part Thomas Crown, part grown-up Artful Dodger, the mysterious Harry can be anything to anybody — and is just as likely to seduce your husband as he is to pick his pocket when it's over,” the Hollywood Reporter reveals.
Lydia — This agent hasn’t been cast yet, but she sounds like a fun addition. Lydia is sexy, sharp and can speak multiple languages. The African-American character is also willing to go above and beyond to get what she wants at work, according to a casting call from TVLine.
Only a couple of these characters seem to be agents, so it’s unclear how they’ll meet Alex (Priyanka Chopra). However, it seems likely that they’ll all somehow be connected to the big mystery of Season 2 — which remains top secret. “The event in Season 2 is probably even bigger than Season 1 on some level,” executive producer Josh Safran teased to Entertainment Weekly last month. “But while it is bigger, it’s also more contained. It allows us to feel more rooted every time we travel from one timeline to another.”
“Quantico” Season 2 premieres Sunday, Sept. 25, at 10 p.m. EDT on ABC.
