“We’re really proud to bring on our new cast members, including a lot of our favorite teen actors from Season 1,” said David Silverman, president of CBS Entertainment.
“This season, we are going to make it so that we can bring you more than the best of our shows, and that includes some of the hottest new faces to come to this network.”
The show’s newest addition is 16-year-old actress Josh Taylor, who plays a high schooler who becomes a member of the band Dio, whose members are not so well-versed in jazz as their parents and grandparents were.
He’s also got a crush on 16-time Emmy winner and award-winning actress Taylor Lautner, who portrays his older sister, Taylor, in the series.
“We’ve got a ton of great characters to introduce this season, and we are very excited to welcome them to the show,” said CBS Entertainment president David Silvermen.
The network’s two biggest hits, The Amazing Race and NCIS, will continue their respective run.
In addition, CBS announced the return of a handful of familiar faces to the cast: Dwayne Johnson (The Green Hornet), Mandy Moore (The Vampire Diaries), and Darryl Hannah (The Walking Dead) are all back for the show’s sixth season.
The new season of Teen Wolf will premiere in 2017.
