Ramón Rodríguez leads the cast as Georgia Bureau Investigation (GBI) Special Agent Will Trent. 

Working on high-stakes missions has been a common quest for Trent due to his impressive photographic memory and bizarre visualization skills.

The character is at the top of the list of the Bureau when it comes to successfully solving crimes, proving that he is more than capable of any challenge thrown at him. 

At the end of Season 1, Trent moved heaven and Earth to save Angie from a killer named James while also closing a chapter in his past after forgiving Amanda for leaving him when he was a baby. 

Season 2 presents a newfound beginning for Trent as he deals with fresh cases and the unexpected arrival of a new love interest.

Speaking with TV Line ahead of Season 2's premiere, Rodriguez teased that there may be “good consequences, and there [may] be some things that trigger” Trent during his journey in the new batch of episodes: 

“There’s one part of it that I’m sure is really exciting [for Will]. [There may be] good consequences, and there [may] be some things that trigger [his character along the way]. It presents a really interesting story for the season of, like, where does this go? How far down the rabbit hole does he go? And what comes of that?”

Rodríguez is known for his roles in Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, Battle Los Angeles, and Need for Speed.

Erika Christensen - Angie Polaski

In an interview with 6ABC, Christensen confirmed that Season 2 will have a six-month time jump while also teasing what's ahead for her character:

Sohn told WJCL what to expect about Amanda Wagner's appearance in Season 2, hinting that there is an episode in which her "past comes back to haunt her:"

“One thing that's that we're in the middle of right now is an episode in which Amanda's past comes back to haunt her. And so, Will is going to learn some information about Amanda that is going to impact the way he views her. And it's going to cause a lot of conflict, but also, in some ways, I guess it causes conflict."
