We can confirm that filming has commenced for the Netflix sci-fi drama Another Life. The new series will feature many familiar faces including actor Jake Abel (Supernatural and Percy Jackson), who posted the below image from set.
Another Life is a 10-episode series focusing on astronaut Niko Breckinridge, played by Katee Sackhoff, who leads her crew on a dangerous mission aboard The Salvare to discover the origin of an alien artifact. The perilous journey quickly has her and the young crew thinking this may be a one-way mission.
Jake Abel joins the cast as Sasha Harrison, the wealthy son of the U.S. Secretary of Defense. Harrison had no desire to venture in space but joins the mission as the government representative. The ambitious Harrison has presidential aspirations, and hopes that a successful mission will someday gain him the Oval Office.
Alexander Eling of Shadowhunters, also joins the crew aboard The Salvare as a computer engineer with a difficult and shady past.
Michelle Vargas, an abrasive communications expert played by Jessica Camacho of The Flash, will add a little spice to the crew. An aggressive personality and a no nonsense a way of thinking will likely cause conflicts with fellow astronauts.
Lina Renna (The 100) plays Jana Breckinridge-Wallace, the daughter of Breckinridge and Erik Wallace (Justin Chatwin). As we might expect from the daughter of The Salvere’s Captain, she will be a tenacious, daring and clever. Life on the ground with only her father brings unique challenges for young Jana.
Another Life will weave an interesting tale of life aboard a ship that may well not return to Earth while commanders and families back home await the new discoveries of The Salvare. After Life was picked up by Netflix last April and is expected to be available sometime in 2019.
