When was it decided, and who should be seen?
After the show became one of the most popular streaming services in February, Spectrum decided to select Joe Pickett for a second season. In terms of Spectrum Originals, it was rated as the most seen program in the platforms history.
As regular cast members, the program rose to the position of the most-viewed original program long before its first complete season had passed. Coley Speaks, Skywalker Hughes, Sharon Lawrence, and Patrick Gallagher are all included in the series.
John Erick Dowdle and his brother Drew Dowdle were responsible for the creation of the Red Wagon Entertainment and Box series. They served as program showrunners, directors, and executive producers.
Johnson is fresh off of the filming of American Tragedies: Waco The Trials for Paramount+, in which he plays the young David Koresh, the director of the Branch Davidians at the time. They went by the name of Vernon Howell, then moves on to Joe Pickett immediately after finishing filming.
Because of the roles both Dowdles played as writers and producers on the series, there is a lot of understanding between Johnson and the producers who created the program. Before that, he played in the critically acclaimed show Euphoria on HBO and the film Midway, directed by Roland Emmerich.
A number of other actors have been confirmed for the next season, including Patrick Gallagher, Alex Breaux, Sean Wei Mah, John Ralston, Cheryl De Luca, Chris Gauthier, Emily Alabi, Tanchay Redvers, and Aaron Dean Eisenberg.
