Homecoming: Janelle Monáe to Succeed Julia Roberts in Season 2
Actress-singer-songwriter Janelle Monáe (Moonlight, Hidden Figures) has been tapped to succeed Julia Roberts in Season 2 of Amazon’s Homecoming, TVLine has learned.
Monáe plays a tenacious woman who finds herself floating in a canoe, with no memory of how she got there — or even who she is.
As previously reported, Roberts, who never intended to star beyond the show’s first season, will remain on board as an executive producer alongside showrunner Sam Esmail. The second season is expected to deviate wildly from the podcast on which it is based. It is unknown who, if anyone from Homecoming‘s Season 1 cast — including Stephan James, Bobby Cannavale, Shea Whigham, Alex Karpovsky and Sissy Spacek — will return for Season 2.
