The cast of Lucifer have already lined up some exciting new projects now the series is confirmed to be coming to an end with its highly anticipated sixth season. After joining the cast of Marvel’s M.O.D.O.K, Aimee Garcia is once again swapping her Netflix duties for another comedy on the US streaming service, Hulu.
Aimee Garcia has been added to the cast of Woke for the new sitcom’s second season.
The Hulu comedy stars New Girl’s Lamorne Morris as Keef Knight, an up-and-coming cartoonist who shies away from controversial topics.
After being racially profiled by police, the traumatised Keef starts to believe inanimate objects have started speaking to him.
Woke’s first season of eight episodes debuted in September last year and, following strong reviews, was picked up for a second outing in November.
Deadline have now reported Aimee Garcia will be joining the next season as series regular.
Garcia is best known for her role as the quirky CSI Ella Lopez in Lucifer, after she was introduced to the main cast in the Fox series’ second season.
She will now portray Laura Salgado in the follow-up to Woke, alongside returning supporting cast Blake Anderson, Rose McIver and Sasheer Zamata.
Salgado is described as a ‘a likable but formidable self-made Silicon Valley venture capitalist who is interested in working with Knight’ in the official release.
Aimee Garcia has also joined the voice cast of the new Marvel stop-motion comedy, M.O.D.O.K.
She stars as the wife of Patton Oswalt’s titular supervillain, alongside Brooklyn Nine-Nine’s Melissa Fumero and Parks and Recreation’s Ben Schwartz as their two children.
Woke season two marks Garcia’s first new acting role announced after the second half of Lucifer season five was released on Netflix on May 23.
However, the actress was also announced to be working on a script for the sequel to the Keanu Reeves-led action film, 47 Ronin.
She teamed with her writing partner AJ Mendez, who recently contributed to the anthology collection Wonder Woman: Black and Gold for the character’s 80th anniversary.
Hulu has yet to confirm a release date for the second season of Woke, but new episodes are hoped to air later this year.
It’s also unclear when the sixth season of Lucifer will be released, though fans are currently pushing for an earlier premiere in 2021.
Lucifer Season 5, Part 2 is available to stream on Netflix.
