The TBS anthology series Miracle Workers has added a new cast member to its ranks for season 3. Joining the show in a recurring role is Quinta Brunson (A Black Lady Sketch Show). She joins series regulars Daniel Radcliffe, Steve Buscemi, Geraldine Viswanathan, and Karan Soni. Deadline was first to report the news.
Brunson will play Trig, who’s described as “tough as nails and completely ruthless,” and can hold her own. She was taken in and raised by Benny (Buscemi), who trained her to be an outlaw. However, Trig begins to resent him, viewing him as a deadbeat dad.
This season is set in 1844 on the Oregon Trail. The full synopsis reads:
“Set in the year 1844, the new season will follow an idealistic small-town preacher (Radcliffe) who teams up with a wanted outlaw (Buscemi) and a liberated prairie wife (Viswanathan) to lead a wagon train west on the Oregon Trail across an American landscape which, much like today, is fraught with both promise and peril.”
Miracle Workers: Oregon Trail will premiere on TBS on July 13. Seasons 1 and 2 are currently available to stream now on HBO Max.
