Garcelle Beauvais has joined the cast of Siren on Freeform for Season 2.

In a recurring capacity, she will play Susan Bishop, the estranged mother of Maddie (Fola Evans-Akingbola).

Production on Season 2 of the series began Thursday.

Siren is an epic tale about the coastal town of Bristol Cove, known for its legend of once being home to mermaids. The arrival of a mysterious girl, Ryn (Eline Powell), wreaks havoc on the small fishing town as she proves the folklore true. Using their resources, marine biologists Ben (Alex Roe) and Maddie (Evans-Aginbola) must work together to find out who and what drove this primal hunter of the deep sea to land and if there are more like her. Rena Owen and Ian Verdun also star.
