Variety reported in August 2021 that Dominic Fike, Demetrius “Lil Meech” Flenory Jr., and Minka Kelly have signed to join the cast in the upcoming episodes. However, their role has yet to reveal. But Fike recently confirmed that he would play a “homie” character who loves to spend time with Jules and Rue. But he’s also depraved. Meanwhile, Minka will play a drag-out suburban housewife. Lil Meech will appear as Mandy’s love interest. On the other hand, Kelvin Harrison Jr., who was initially supposed to appear in the first run, will join the ensemble in its sophomore run. But unfortunately, Lil Nas X won’t join the cast as he turned down his role to focus on his new album.
