Amazon's Hit Series 'Cross' Secures Early Renewal for Season 2, Welcomes Star-Studded Cast

Excitement is building as Prime Video gears up for the series premiere of “Cross” and even lays the groundwork for a second season of the gripping drama as per Variety. Drawing inspiration from James Patterson’s best-selling Alex Cross book series, the show boasts an ensemble cast featuring Aldis Hodge in the lead role, alongside Wes Chatham, Matthew Lillard, and Jeanine Mason, among others.

Created and helmed by Ben Watkins, known for his work on “Hand of God,” the series promises a dark and twisted narrative, delving into the mind of Alex Cross, a detective, and forensic psychologist adept at unraveling the psyche of both killers and victims to bring justice to light.

In this highly anticipated second season, Jeanine Mason steps into the shoes of Rebecca, a character described as brilliant, ambitious, and driven by vengeance, adding depth to the ensemble. Meanwhile, Matthew Lillard takes on the role of Lance, a cutthroat and self-made business mogul, injecting the series with intrigue and suspense. Wes Chatham rounds out the trio, portraying Donnie, a complex character with a military background, conservative political leanings, and a surprisingly tender side.
