Untitled Show From The CW About Millennial Nuns Adds Five New Cast Members Including ‘Schitt’s Creek’ Star Karen Robinson


The CW’s upcoming dramedy about modern nuns has added five more names to its cast: Karen Robinson, Joe Regalbuto, Kathleen Chalfant, Maxwell Whittington-Cooper and Abubakr Ali.

These five stars join already announced leads Caitlin Kinnunen and Bella Ortiz in the Tessa Blake directed, Claire Rothrock and Ryann Weir written dramedy about a pair of modern nuns who work to find their faith and their place in the Catholic Church. Schitt’s Creek alum Robinson will be playing Sister Mary Annette Shlioh, the loving head-nun-in-charge who is looking to move the church into modern times by mentoring the next generation. Emmy-nominee Regalbuto has been cast as Father Quinn, a charming but old school priest who believes himself to be unflappable. Chalfant will appear as Sister Joyce, an older nun with an alcohol addiction known for speeding around on her mobility scooter. Whittington-Cooper will be the parish choir director Laurie, and finally Ali will play Rahim, the sensitive heartthrob who attempts to trick the young Sister Maggie.

This show certainly has an all-star line up and an intriguing concept. For more details about the previously announced cast and the show itself, check out our previous article about the show here.

LeeAnn is children's librarian who joined Nerds and Beyond in 2020 as a way to stretch her writing skills and connect with others who have the same pop culture passions as she does. She loves music, reading (obviously), and any TV show that can grab and hold her attention. Currently some of her favorite things to nerd out over include Supernatural, Prodigal Son, Louden Swain and Percy Jackson (books, theater, or upcoming show - lets leave the movies out of it).
