The SCI FI Channel original series Sanctuary began production last week on its second season in Vancouver, Canada, the channel announced.
Slated to return this fall, the one-hour drama's 13-episode second season will include the addition of new cast member Agam Darshi (2012) as Kate Freelander.
Witty and sarcastic, with a gift for persuasion, Kate Freelander is a swindler, con artist and thief who finds herself in an uneasy alliance with Dr. Magnus (Amanda Tapping) after her business relationship with the Cabal goes sour.
Agam has appeared in such television programs as Supernatural, The Dead Zone, Stargate Atlantis and the Lifetime movie The Haunting on Sorority Row. Her feature-film credits include Final Destination 3, Snakes on a Plane and Roland Emmerich's upcoming apocalyptic thriller 2012.
Sanctuary follows the adventures of Magnus, a brilliant scientist who holds the secrets of a clandestine population: a group of strange and sometimes terrifying beings that hide among humans. The series also stars Robin Dunne.
