CBS has announced that Jeffrey Dean Morgan will join the cast of the Halle Berry sci-fi show for Season 2.
The Supernatural star will play JD Richter, a "roguish womanizer and a cop of the future" who is a mercenary and a bounty hunter. A big drinker, JD is fearless because he has nothing to lose. He thinks he's seen it all, that is until he meets Molly Woods (Berry).
Morgan will join the cast as previous series regulars Goran Visnjic and Camryn Manheim will return in recurring roles, while Hiroyuki Sanada and Michael O'Neill will not return for Season 2.
Jeffrey Dean Morgan's other TV credits include Grey's Anatomy, Magic City, and Weeds.
Season 2 of Extant will return to CBS mid-year.
