Another Life has some new company. This week, Netflix announced Justin Chatwin, Tyler Hoechlin, Samuel Anderson, and Elizabeth Faith Ludlow have joined the new TV show.
The sci-fi drama “centers on astronaut Niko Breckinridge (Katee Sackhoff) who is focused on searching for alien intelligence. She leads a crew on a mission to explore the genesis of an alien artifact.”
Netflix has not yet announced a premiere date for Another Life, but you can read more details below:
· Tyler Hoechlin, Justin Chatwin, Samuel Anderson and Elizabeth Faith Ludlow have boarded the Netflix sci-fi drama series Another Life, from creator/showrunner Aaron Martin (Slasher, Saving Hope, Degrassi: The Next Generation) and producer Noreen Halpern (Alias Grace) through her Halfire Entertainment shingle, both of whom are executive producing.
· The four join previously announced Katee Sackhoff and Selma Blair.
· Prolific television director Omar Madha will direct the first two episodes of the 10-episode series, which Netflix ordered to series last April.
· Another Life centers on astronaut Niko Breckinridge (Sackhoff) who is focused on searching for alien intelligence. She leads a crew on a mission to explore the genesis of an alien artifact. As Niko and her young crew investigate, they face unimaginable danger on what might very well be a one-way mission.

· Chatwin (“Shameless,” “Orphan Black”) plays ‘Erik Wallace,’ part of the United States Interstellar Command, dedicated to finding intelligent life out in the universe and husband of Commander Niko Breckenridge (Sackhoff).
· Anderson (“Loaded,” “Dr. Who,” “Trollied”) plays ‘William,” a holographic interface of a sentient A.I. Neither a futuristic Tin Man, nor a robot who pines to be human, William is a new form of life with the knowledge of all humanity at his disposal.
· Ludlow (“The Walking Dead,” “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2”, “Godzilla: King of the Monsters”) plays ‘Cas Isakovic,’ Niko’s second-in-command and staunchest ally, filled with courage and moral conviction.
