If you’ve never watched Extant, this is what you need to know ahead of the season 2 premiere: Halle Berry plays an astronaut impregnated by an alien and now she’s on the hunt for her offspring. Seriously, that’s it. Because the CBS summer series will see a near-brand new cast in its sophomore run.
Among the new faces include Magic City alum Jeffrey Dean Morgan as J.D.
