Building on the success of the IDW comic book series written by Steve Niles, Netflix recently ordered 10 episodes of new original series “October Faction.”
Today, the cast for the monster-hunting series has been announced, with Tamara Taylor (Bones, Altered Carbon, Lost, Justice League: Gods and Monsters) as Deloris Allen and J.C. Mackenzie (Molly’s Game, The Wolf of Wall Street) as Fred Allen. Aurora Burghart (Sex Education) will play Viv Allen, with Gabriel Darku (Impulse, ReBoot: The Guardian Code, American Gods) as Geoff Allen.
Wendy Crewson (The Vow, Room), Megan Follows (Reign, Anne of Green Gables) and Stephen McHattie (Watchmen, Maurice Richard) also star.
“The series follows globetrotting monster hunters Fred and Deloris Allen who, after the death of Fred’s father, return to their hometown in upstate New York with their teenage children Geoff and Viv. As the family adjusts, Fred and Deloris must hide their identities as members of a secret organization, and our heroes quickly discover that their new small-town setting isn’t as idyllic as it seems.”
“October Faction” was adapted and created by Damian Kindler (Sleepy Hollow, Krypton) who serves as creator, showrunner and executive producer.
