AMC has announced two brand-new actors for their upcoming psychological thriller series Invitation to a Bonfire. Jamie Neumann (Lovecraft Country) and Amy Darton (Sleeping Beauty) are expected to appear in what are described as "heavy recurring roles." The series will premiere on AMC sometime next year.
Deadline provided the first reports on the casting of an Emmy-nominated character named Cherien Dabis (Only Murders In The Building) in the upcoming series. Zoya, played by Freya Mavor, is set to play Leo, a young Russian immigrant in the 1930s who is a groundskeeper at the Donne School in New Jersey, who is drawn into a love triangle with his wife and editor, played by Tatiana Maslany.
Neumann will portray Nadine, a rural-raised woman who works at the Donne School. Nadine was previously a student at the boarding school due to a generous scholarship, unknown to the current students at the school. Darton plays Daphne, who is described as the school's "unquestioned queen" due to her privileged background.
Maslany will also play a lead producer alongside Robin Schwartz and Kyle Laursen. Neumann has previously worked on series such as Sleeping Beauty and Invisible. Dabis was nominated for Outstanding Directorial Performance in a Comedy Series for The Boy From 6B's episode on Hulus Only Murders in the Building and has also directed series such as fellow Hulu comedy Ramy as well as Ozark on Netflix.
Invitation to a Bonfire will be released next year by AMC, although a precise release date has yet to be determined. In the meantime, series star Maslany can be seen next in She-Hulk: Attorney At Law, which premieres August 17 on Disney+.
