TVLine has learned exclusively that the actress has landed the recurring Season 2 role of Allison, the Deputy Secretary of Defense who is actively seeking a solution to the animal crisis… and who shares a surprising history with Mitch (played by Billy Burke).
An adaptation of the James Patterson novel, Zoo was renewed back in October after emerging as last summer’s most watched scripted series (averaging 6.4 million weekly viewers). Season 2 will bow Tuesday, June 28 at 9 pm, with a two-hour premiere in which the danger escalates as the animal mutation moves to Phase 2, and they begin attacking infrastructure and creating deadly environmental phenomena in a bid to make the planet uninhabitable.
