Fox’s dark drama The Following has cast two new series regulars (and potential Joe Carroll victims!) for season two.

First, 90210 star Jessica Stroup is joining the show. She’ll play Max, the niece of Ryan Hardy (Kevin Bacon). She’s an NYPD cop, currently working in the Intel Division. Max reconnects with Ryan and she becomes a valuable ally.

The Following has also hired Tiffany Boone (Beautiful Creatures), who will play Mandy, an impressionable young girl who finds herself to be the newest cult member following Joe Carroll (James Purefoy) — whether she likes it or not.

But wait, there’s more: There’s been a ton of season two additions to the show breaking in recent weeks: NYPD Blue alum James McDaniel will play an FBI agent, Homeland actress Valerie Cruz will play an NYPD cop, Gladiator actress Connie Nelson will play a love interest for Ryan and recent Dexter actor Sam Underwood will play a bad guy. The Following returns to Fox in January.
