THEM will once again be set in Los Angeles but leap forward nearly 40 years, to 1991, where it will follow LAPD Homicide Detective Dawn Reeve (a new character played by Season 1 star Deborah Ayorinde) as she investigates the gruesome murder of a foster home mother.

“Navigating a tumultuous time in Los Angeles, with a city on the razor’s edge of chaos, Dawn is determined to stop the killer,” reads the synopsis. “But as she draws closer to the truth, something ominous and malevolent grips her and her family….”

Said family includes Dawn’s son Kel (played by Cloak & Dagger‘s Joshua J. Williams) and her mother Athena, played by the one and only Pam Grier.

Schiff; Carlito Olivero (Step Up: High Water) as Joaquin Diaz, a newly minted detective; Charles Brice (Homeland) as Reggie Marks, a charming attorney; and former NBA star Iman Shumpert (The Chi) as Dawn’s ex, Corey.

“With THEM: The Scare, we wanted to combine our love of horror with a look at Los Angeles’s rich history and evolution,” series creator and showrunner Little Marvin said in a statement. “This second installment is a new story set in the ’90s, one of the most iconic decades for film, music and fashion, particularly in Los Angeles.

“I’m also excited about our amazing cast,” Little Marvin added. “Deborah Ayorinde returns as a completely new character, Luke James delivers an unforgettable performance, and the legendary Pam Grier, who has played so many iconic and beloved roles on screen, makes her return to horror…. We couldn’t have asked for a more fearless group to lead this second installment.”
