An Ohio outcast who danced his way into High Water, literally beaten and bloodied, Tal became the pride of Sage Odom’s elite dance crew, and now is the lead dancer for Sage’s massive tour. Last May, Starz swooped in and rescued the series (and will also host the first two seasons beginning March 5). Other returning series regulars include Faizon Love (as Uncle Al), Jade Chynoweth (Odalie), Carlito Olivero (Davis), Terrence Green (Rigo), Eric Graise (King), and Kendra Oyesanya (Poppy), while Battlestar Galactica vet Tricia Helfer will fill the new role of Erin. As previously reported, actress/singer/DWTS alum Christina Milian will take over the role of Collette in the wake of original portrayer Naya Rivera‘s tragic death. Of the latest additions, Lonsdale will play Tal, in a recast of a role originally played by Petrice Jones. Inspired by the Step Up film franchise, the series centers on Sage Odom (played by Ne-Yo) as the legendary founder of Atlanta’s famed High Water Performing Art School, while Collette is the Queen of High Water and Sage Odom’s partner in art, business, and love. Season 3 begins filming this month in Atlanta. Step Up: High Water was initially available on YouTube Red (now YouTube Premium), but was cancelled after two seasons as the video platform moved away from original programming. Lastly, Rosie will play Angel, who is running from the place she calls home — the seedy underworld of London’s organized crime families — to the one place in the world where she can make her dreams a reality, High Water. Murciano has been cast as Cruz, a man hoping to carve his face into the Mount Rushmore of high profile, celebrity lawyers — believing that Sage Odom’s murder accusation will get him there.
