Production is now underway on the second season of Syfy’s Alphas, the dramatic series starring David Strathairn, Malik Yoba, Warren Christie, Azita Ghanizada, Ryan Cartwright and Laura Mennell. The 13 episode second season will debut in July, with Erin Way joining the cast as ‘Kat.’ Also new to the show this season is Bruce Miller who has come on board as executive producer and showrunner.
 
Alphas averaged 3.3 million total viewers during its first season.
 
The Plot:
 
Alphas follows a clandestine group of ordinary people whose unique neurological condition equips them with extraordinary mental and physical abilities. Led by preeminent neurologist and psychiatrist Dr. Lee Rosen (David Strathairn) this unlikely team takes on cases the CIA, FBI and Pentagon are unwilling or unable to solve and go head-to-head with many of the criminal Alphas released from the Binghamton facility in last season’s finale episode. When the series debuted last summer, it became Syfy’s most-watched original scripted series premiere in two years. Overall the show averaged 3.3 million total viewers during its first season.
 
Erin Way joins the ensemble as “Kat,” a mysterious, free-spirited young loner whose Alpha ability allows her to pick up any skill at a glance. The downside to her condition, which has plagued her for her entire life, is that her memories are short-lived and her experiences fade away after a short amount of time. Becoming a member of the team provides a purpose and direction for Kat and working with Dr. Rosen may help her reclaim her lost past.
