With just over a month away until the return of Prodigal Son, we are getting even more information about potential plot points for the season along with new cast updates. Deadline reports that Christian Borle and Michael Potts will have major recurring roles this season. Borle will play Friar Pete, “a former friar ejected from his church for extremist views …. famous for a notorious killing spree that has landed him in the psychiatric ward with Martin.” Potts will play Dr. Brandon Marsh, Martin’s new psychiatrist. This seemingly confirms that Martin is indeed back at Claremont after the events of the season one finale.
