Are there any new cast members for Season 2?
Compared to a show like Big Little Lies, the casting news for The OA Season 2 hasn't exactly lit up the internet. But this is a low-key, secretive show: It would be strange if all the sudden if an A-list movie star was added to the cast for Season 2. Besides Brit Marling, Isaacs, Phyllis Smith, and Riz Ahmed, who played a small but pivotal role in Season 1, the first season's cast consisted of mostly unknown faces. It would make sense if Season 2 took a similar approach. But there has been at least one small piece of news.
Actor Theodore Pellerin, who will be seen in Joel Edgerton's drama A Boy Erased later this year, has been cast in Season 2. According to The Wrap, he'll play a character named Liam who is described as "an 18-year-old who has persisting hallucinations." Hallucinations are a pretty common experience on The OA, so he should fit right in. He'll be featured in three episodes of the show.
