As confirmed by Amazon Studios, ‘Homecoming’ season 2 will not return with Julia Roberts starring as lead character. In replacement of the Oscar winner is actress/singer m, known best for her 2017 SAG-Award outstanding performance by a cast in ‘Hidden Figures’.
Janelle will star in ‘Homecoming’ 2 portraying the character of a tenacious woman who finds herself floating in a canoe, with no memory of how she got there or even who she is. The storyline for season 2 is a continuation of season 1 finale, which featured Colin Belfast (Bobby Cannavale) and his fresh minted Geist Group superior Audrey Temple (Hong Chau) squaring off, with Audrey calming nerves with a mysterious medicine after the encounter.
Although, Roberts is not reprising her lead actress role in the series, she however remains as an executive producer alongside showrunner/director Sam Esmail and ‘Mr. Robot’ executive producer Chad Hamilton of Anonymous Content.
Janelle began her Hollywood career as a musician and has over the years pulled strings from one musical concert to the other, all landing her eight Grammy award nominations. Her stardom in cinemas is partially linked to the A-list movies she has featured in including ‘Moonlight’ and ‘Hidden Figures’. Aside her highly recognised titles in film and music, she stuns at every rolled out red carpet she appears on, be it the Oscars or the MET.
She is repped by WME, Wondaland Management and Ziffren Brittenham Law.
