The actress will appear in two episodes of the Halle Berry-fronted interstellar drama as Dorothy, a tightly wound, by-the-book circuit court judge who also happens to be the estranged wife of Jeffrey Dean Morgan’s new bounty-hunter character, JD Richter. Dorothy reappears when her ex’s involvement with astronaut Molly (Berry) puts their daughter in danger.
Extant‘s revamped second season — which bows Wednesday, July 1 at 10/9c — finds Molly discovering that she has unwittingly put the human race on a path to destruction, and that she and a mysterious stranger (Morgan’s JD) may be the only hope for survival.
