Riggs (Clayne Crawford) and Murtaugh (Damon Wayons) become her bodyguards as they attempt to uncover the deadly secrets that haunt Shaye — before the baddie strikes again.

Collins will recur in Season 2 as Molly. She’ll first appear in Episode 6, when she’ll show up as the lady friend of a guy named Jake (played by Linds Edwards, whom Nashville fans may recognize as Rayna’s stalker, Carl).

Kanakaredes will play a new character, Dr. Lane Hunter. As the top oncologist in the state of Georgia, Lane is brilliant, warm and a strong leader who spends every waking moment tending to her patients. However, as the season unfolds, we discover an unexpected complexity in Lane as surprising twists and turns end up driving a harrowing thriller arc.

Star (FOX)

 Stephen Dorff (Wheeler) has joined the musical series as the father of Star Davis.
