American Crime is continuing to flesh out its Season 2 cast — and it looks a lot like that of Season 1.
“After playing individuals on the fringes of the law, Season 2 will offer complete role reversals for both Elvis and Richard,” series creator John Ridley told our sister site Deadline. “Elvis playing a fundamentally good man scapegoated by the system in which he works. Richard as someone who takes it upon himself to stand for the rights of others, even if it means he stands alone.”
Nolasco and Cabral join Season 1 alumni Felicity Huffman, Timothy Hutton and Regina King, all of whom will return for the series’ second season.
