USA's 'Sirens' Adds Series Regular for Season 2 (Exclusive)
USA Network's Sirens is adding a new series regular.
Actor Bill Nunn, who plays EMT Cash, has been promoted for the second season, The Hollywood Reporter has learned. He appeared in nearly all the episodes in the half-hour comedy's rookie run as a recurring guest star.
Based on a British series, Sirens — from executive producers Denis Leary and Bob Fisher — follows three Chicago EMTs (Michael Mosley, Kevin Daniels and Kevin Bigley). Nunn joins an ensemble that also includes Jessica McNamee as a Chicago patrol officer.
At the end of its first season, the Fox Television Studios production ranked as basic cable's No. 1 new comedy of the year among total viewers, averaging 1.62 million total viewers. Sirens was renewed for a second season in June.
Nunn, who recently appeared in 2012's Won't Back Down, is repped by manager Patty Woo.
