Underground - Season 2 - Aisha Hinds to Recur as Harriet Tubman

WGN America's Underground has cast its Harriet Tubman.

Under the Dome and Star Trek Into Darkness alum Aisha Hinds has been tapped to play the famed abolitionist on season two of the cable network's drama.

Hinds will take on the recurring role in season two and portray the Underground Railroad's most famous conductor who is revered for her grit, perseverance and unrelenting will to help scores of enslaved people reach their freedom. Born a slave, Tubman is a devout Christian who, after escaping herself, risks her life again and again in order to free her family members and lead anyone willing to journey north across hostile territory, to freedom — a task she believes is her God-given mission.

Also joining the cast of the WGNA drama in recurring roles for season two are Jasika Nicole (Fringe, Scandal) as Georgia, an abolitionist with a covert station along the Underground whose quiet confidence hides secrets of her own; Michael Trotter (Rosewood) as Biographer, an astute observer of people who lives through the lives of others often fearful of taking chances; and Jesse Luken (Justified) as Smoke, the fearless second in command of Patty Cannon’s infamous gang of slave catchers.

Underground ranks as WGNA's most-watched original scripted series. Produced by Tribune Studios and Sony Pictures Television, the drama created by Misha Green and Joe Pokaski will return in 2017.

Returning stars are Jurnee Smollett-Bell, Aldis Hodge, Christopher Meloni, Alano Miller, Jessica de Gouw and Amirah Vann. Amirah Vann has been upped to a series regular in Season 2, following her reccuring role in the initial season, and Marc Blucas will return in a guest role, as John Hawkes.
