Hightown: Garret Dillahunt, Jeanine Serralles, Kaya Rosenthal, Michael Drayer, Ellie Barone And Taja V. Simpson Join Cast For Season 3

Deadline is exclusively reporting that Garret Dillahunt, Jeanine Serralles, Kaya Rosenthal, Michael Drayer, newcomer Ellie Barone, and Taja V. Simpson have landed recurring roles for the upcoming third season of the Starz crime drama series Hightown.

.

Set in the beautiful, but bleak world of Cape Cod, the synopsis for the previous season is as follows:

Jackie Quinones achieving her dream of becoming a real cop, is out to do some good in this world. Thrust immediately into the crime wave of deadly carfentanyl flooding the Cape, Jackie is laser-focused on bringing down drug dealer Frankie Cuevas, the man Jackie holds responsible for the death of her best friend, Junior.

For Jackie, it is personal but then again, for Jackie, everything is personal. When Frankie’s cousin Jorge joins his operation, he introduces a new level of violence and chaos. With disgraced officer Ray Abruzzo off the force and mired in depression, Jackie finds a new partner in Leslie, the only other female on the force. Through it all, Jackie must walk the tightrope of sobriety as she struggles to stay above an ocean of secrets, betrayal and the shame and failure of her past.

.

Garret Dillahunt (whose credits include Fear The Walking Dead and Army of the Dead) will be playing the role of Shane Frawley, a charismatic and charming gangster from South Boston. He owns a slew of legitimate businesses across Massachusetts, but his plans to take the Cape by storm are far from legit. As the new man on the scene, he will be a massive thorn in drug trafficker Osito’s side.

.

Jeanine Serralles (whose credits include Utopia and The Woman In The Window) will be playing the role of Rachel, a lonely woman who lives with her grandmother, who has found comfort in writing letters to prisoners…which sends her down a dangerous path.

.

Kaya Rosenthal (whose credits include The Time Traveler’s Wife and Salvage) will be playing the role of Sarah, a rookie cop, who has been assigned to Ray’s unit on an undercover assignment. She’s got great instincts and is a thoroughly modern millennial who puts Ray in his place.

.

Michael Drayer (whose credits include Mr. Robot and Sneaky Pete) will be playing the role of Owen Frawley, nephew of Dillahunt’s Shane, who was kicked off the Red Sox farm team for blatant steroid abuse and casual violence. He is a vicious, funny, reckless drug dealer and all-around loose cannon. His bad behavior is enabled by his uncle Shane.

.

Ellie Barone will be playing the role of Veronica, a tough working girl who’s mysteriously gone missing and quickly becomes Jackie’s latest obsession.

.

Taja V. Simpson (whose credits include The Oval and A House Divided) will be playing the role of Janelle, a no-nonsense physical therapist at the Provincetown prison, who can handle everything the prisoners throw her way. After years of keeping her guard up, she has fallen in love with the prisoner, Osito. Despite being blissfully happy, life has taught her that nothing this good can last.
