Tyler Hoechlin (Supergirl, Teen Wolf) and Justin Chatwin (Shameless, American Gothic) have joined the cast of Netflix’s upcoming new series Another Life. Elizabeth Faith Ludlow (The Walking Dead, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2) and Samuel Anderson (Dr. Who, Trollied) have also been added to the cast of the series which comes from creator/showrunner Aaron Martin (Slasher, Saving Hope, Degrassi: The Next Generation) and Alias Grace‘s Noreen Halpern.
Martin and Halpern are executive producing, with Omar Madha on board to direct the series’ first two episodes. Madha’s directing credits include episodes of Scorpion, Turn, 24: Live Another Day, Person of Interest, and The Blacklist as well as the pilot of Dick Wolf’s Law & Order: UK.
The newly announced cast joins Katee Sackhoff and Selma Blair, previously announced to star in the sci-fi series.
Netflix confirmed Another Life‘s first season will consist of 10 episodes.
The Plot: Another Life centers on astronaut Niko Breckinridge (Sackhoff) who is focused on searching for alien intelligence. She leads a crew on a mission to explore the genesis of an alien artifact. As Niko and her young crew investigate, they face unimaginable danger on what might very well be a one-way mission.
Tyler Hoechlin will play ‘Ian Yerxa,’ the former commander of The Salvare space explorations ship, who loses the post to Niko. Justin Chatwin has signed on to play ‘Erik Wallace,’ part of the United States Interstellar Command, dedicated to finding intelligent life out in the universe and husband of Commander Niko Breckenridge.
Samuel Anderson is set to play ‘William,” a holographic interface of a sentient A.I. Neither a futuristic Tin Man, nor a robot who pines to be human, William is a new form of life with the knowledge of all humanity at his disposal. And Elizabeth Faith Ludlow plays ‘Cas Isakovic,’ Niko’s second-in-command and staunchest ally, filled with courage and moral conviction.
