That’s one conclusion you can draw from the CBS series’ latest casting: Kiersey Clemons (Transparent) will recur in Season 2 as a lifelike robot who’s “a bit morally ambiguous,” TVLine has learned exclusively.
Lucy is attractive and fun but also “an unpredictable wildcard” — per the official character description — whose loose sense of right and wrong is a result of her creators’ skipping important stages in her development. (See? All of those hours Humanichs founder John spent telling his android son Ethan not to kill things were important.)
Clemons currently plays Sophia on MTV’s Eye Candy. In addition to Transparent, her other credits include Austin & Ally, CSI, Shake It Up! and the feature film Dope, which was a popular selection at this year’s Sundance Film Festival.
Extant is expected to return this summer.
