Deadline reported Janelle Monáe has been cast as the lead of Amazon’s ‘Homecoming’ Season 2.

Directed by Sam Esmall (Mr. Robot), Monáe’s character arc has been described as “tenacious woman who finds herself floating in a canoe, with no memory of how she got there — or even who she is.”

Julia Roberts, who starred on Season 1 will remain as the series’s executive producer.
