REMAINING EPISODES PREMIERING IN 2021
New casting announcements for this season include Lucius Fox, who will be played by Simon Manyonda (His Dark Materials) and Melanie Troy, who will be played by Jessica de Gouw (The Hunting, Gretel and Hansel).
Lucius Fox is a young American scientist, precise to the point of pedantry, deliberately calm, honest, and direct to a fault; he suffers no fools gladly. His friends would say he's a man of conscience; his enemies would say he's judgmental and dogmatic. An integral part of the DC universe, this marks his introduction to the Wayne family.
Melanie Troy is a military orphan, who became a woman of the world far too young. She married a dominating older man, but with her wry intelligence and a sardonic sense of humor, she's no submissive and gives as good as she gets. Introduced to Alfie as the wife of his former SAS Captain, the two kindred spirits have an immediate connection.
Season two also introduces new series regulars James Purefoy(The Following, Sex Education, Altered Carbon), Edward Hogg(Taboo, Harlots, White Lightning), Jessye Romeo (Curfew, In the Long Run), Ramon Tikaram (Brassic, The Victim) and Harriet Slater (Faunutland and the Lost Magic).
