Patrick Gallagher (Dr. Abbott) will be Detective Dave Nissley in Episode 6 of the true crime anthology series DIRTY JOHN, the true story of Debra Newell (Connie Britton), a successful business woman who, after four divorces, tried an online dating service and fell in love with a con-man named John Meehan (Eric Bana). The nine-episode first season will premiere on BravoTV in the US on Sunday, 25 November at 10/9c. (The first episode can be streamed now on the Bravo website.) A trailer is available on YouTube.
Chad Rook (Chris Mueller) will be Stephen Archer in the first episode of THE INBETWEEN, which stars Harriet Dyer as Cassie Bishop, a woman who was born with the ability to see and communicate with dead people. In the pilot episode, Cassie reluctantly agrees to work with the cops (specifically her long-time friend Detective Tom Hackett, played by Paul Blackthorne) to solve a particularly puzzling murder. Grace Lynn Kung (FRANKIE DRAKE MYSTERIES) is also in the cast. Created by Soo Kim and Moira Kirkland, THE INBETWEEN is set to premiere in the Spring of 2019 on NBC.
SEASON TWO NEWS
Saskia Wedding will make at least two appearances in the second season. In episode 2.1 (titled “Song of Love”) she will be part of a “kissing couple”, and in episode 2.4 she turns up as “flirty girl”. Wedding is a dancer and choreographer. She appeared as a dancer in “Babylon” (Episode 10.5 of THE X-FILES).
Natalee Linez will make her TV debut as Nicole, a recurring character who becomes Xander’s new love interest. Nicole is a new arrival in Bristol Cove, and has hidden (and possibly nefarious) reasons for being there.
Amanda Row directs episodes 2.2 (titled “Family Secrets”) and 2.7. (Episode 2.7 features Raf Rogers as a medical examiner and Mo Said as a coroner’s assistant, so it’s a reasonable assumption that someone’s death is being investigated.) Row has directed three episodes of SHADOWHUNTERS: THE MORTAL INSTRUMENTS, the third of which (Episode 3.16) should air on Freeform on 1 April 2019..
Christopher Rosamund will appear in three episodes as someone named Glen. Rosamund was Charles Harker in three episodes of SyFy’s VAN HELSING, and is Mr. Kinkle in the Netflix series THE CHILLING ADVENTURES OF SABRINA.
Garcelle Beauvais will be Maddie’s mom Susan Bishop (wife of Sheriff Dale Bishop). Susan left home ten months previously for reasons that have not been revealed. She phoned Maddie in the final episode of the first season and is on her way home.
Katrina (Aylya Marzolf) will be among the mermaids returning to Bristol Cove in Season Two. It is unknown whether the merfolk are returning to seek help, or to exact revenge.
