Jeffrey Dean Morgan Joins the Extant Cast

Published 7 years ago

Looking forward to more Extant on CBS this summer?

Then you might be interested to know that Jeffrey Dean Morgan (Magic City, Grey’s Anatomy) will join Halle Berry and co. when the show returns for a second season.

Morgan, whose role is recurring, has been cast as JD Richter, a roguish womanizer and a cop of the future who is a mercenary/bounty hunter.

Richter is free-wheeling, hard-drinking and fearless, bordering on reckless, mostly because he’s got nothing to lose. He is the everyman who thought he had seen everything until Molly Woods (Halle Berry) enters his life.

Extant is a mystery thriller centring on astronaut Molly Woods, who discovers she has unwittingly put the human race on a path to destruction, and that she and a mysterious stranger may be the only hope for survival.

Extant returns summer 2015.
