The Unsettling Season 2 Cast: Who can be in it?
Becca (Holly Taylor) is taken into foster care by Fia (Marguerite Moreau) and Jason Werner (David Clayton Rogers). Becca’s foster siblings who eventually team up with her are Connor (Tequan Richmond), Maya (Willow Shields), and Nadine (An-Li Bogan). Fia and Jason also have a biological son, Dominic (Noah Grismer).
Other significant characters in the show are Silas (Alex Lange), Sarah (Olivia Taylor), Lorraine (Lora Martinez-Cunningham), Pastor Isaac (Travis Hammer), Ash Man (Douglas Bennett), and Gran (Teddy Eggleston). If the show is renewed, it’s possible we may not see Alex, Olivia, David, Lora, Marguerite, and Douglas since their respective characters die on the show. However, season 2 can feature new cast members playing fresh characters.
The Unsettling Season 2 Plot: What can it be About?
In season 1, Becca, Maya, Nadine, Connor, and Dominic go through a lot and finally join hands to fight Fia and her allies. It turns out that the ghost is trying to protect Becca and the others from the deadly prophecy that Fia, Lorraine, and Isaac are hell-bent on fulfilling. The kids manage to maneuver their way out of their death trap and look forward to a new beginning. As new occupants move into the house, their daughter hears the ghost as the season’s final episode comes to a close.
As revealed in season 1, the land itself has an evil effect on the occupants of the place even though generations have tried getting rid of the curse. So if there is a season 2, it will focus on the story of the new occupants of the Werner house and their experiences with the supernatural elements.
