NEW SEASON 2 CHARACTERS
Nic Bishop (Covert Affairs) portrays Gates, a brilliant but troubled military genius who helped build Vega into the stronghold it has become.
Simon Merrells (Spartacus: War of the Damned) plays Julian, the cunning and powerful leader of New Delphi. Julian is a cryptic man with motives as questionable as his past and will go to any lengths to protect his city.
Christina Chong (24: Live Another Day) is Zoe, a member of Vega’s Archangel Corps who defected to a rebel faction. Bold, fierce and scrappy, she’s a member of the poorest class that dwells in the city’s dangerous tunnels.
Olivia Mace (Doctors) portrays Laurel, the steadfast leader of the small Southern town of survivors who have inexplicably managed to insulate themselves from the fallout of The Extermination War. Laurel is deeply devout to her religious faith and is unwavering in her resolve.
Luke Tyler (Chronicle) plays Pete, an energetic, bright, dynamic and eternally optimistic teenager who grew up in the apocalypse. He has only ever known a battle-torn world, so he has no memories of the peaceful past.
