Slumdog Millionaire‘s Freida Pinto is cutting a Path to Hulu, joining the religious-themed drama’s upcoming third season as a series regular, TVLine has learned. 

Pinto — who’s recently starred opposite Idris Elba in Showtime’s six-part drama Guerrilla — will play Vera, a sleek new publicist for the Meyerist movement who forges a personal connection with Aaron Paul’s Eddie, but may have her own secret agenda.

Production on The Path‘s 13-episode third season commenced this week in New York ahead of an early 2018 premiere.
