Richardson will play Lady Farrier, Myfanwy’s mentor and ally who sits at the head of the Checquy, defending her tenuous hold on its secrecy.

Munn is Monica Reed, a bold American intelligence officer with subtle supernatural powers who crashes into the Checquy investigation of her former lover’s death.

Lester will play Conrad Grantchester, the suave and charismatic deputy to Farrier, who ultimately challenges her role as King.
