Amazon announced today six more stars for its upcoming horror anthology series, Them. Formerly known as Them: Covenant, the series went into development with a two-season order and stars Deborah Ayorinde (Luke Cage) and Ashley Thomas (Salvation) tapped for the leading roles. In terms of the wider casting, Deadline revealed six new additions earlier today.
Set to recur for this show's first season are Brooke Smith (Bombshell), Anika Noni Rose (Power, The Quad), P.J. Byrne (Black Lightning), Malcolm Mays (Snowfall), Jeremiah Birkett (Euphoria, Lucifer), and Sophie Guest (The Good Nanny). It is unknown at this time whether any stars will be returning for the series' next story or if each season will have its own separate casting.
Them is coming our way from executive producers Lena Waithe and Little Marvin, the latter whom wrote the series. The story is set in 1953 and follows a couple who decides to move their family from North Carolina to an all-white Los Angeles neighborhood, where their new home becomes ground zero for malevolent forces both real and supernatural threatening to haunt, ravage, and destroy them.
There's no word yet on when horror fans will be able to check out this series, but you can keep your eyes on Dead Entertainment for all the latest news and updates ahead. Stay tuned!
