Julia Roberts Won’t Reprise Her Role in Homecoming Season 2
TVLine reports that Academy Award winner Julia Roberts won’t be reprising her role as Heidi Bergman in the forthcoming second season of Amazon‘s thriller series Homecoming. Roberts will still serve as the show’s executive producer along with showrunner Sam Esmail, that in mind, a possible guest appearance still remains on the table. Further details about the second season’s cast is currently being kept under wraps with no word if the rest of the season one’s cast members will still be returning for the next season.
In the recent 76th Golden Globe Awards, Homecoming earned three nominations in three major categories including Best Actress in a Television Series Drama for Roberts’ performance as a caseworker. The series came home empty handed at the ceremony.
Heidi Bergman is a caseworker at the Homecoming Transitional Support Center, a Geist Group facility helping soldiers transition back to civilian life. Walter Cruz (Stephan James) is one of these soldiers, eager to begin the next phase of his life. Overseeing Heidi and the facility is Colin Belfast (Bobby Cannavale), an ambitious company man whose manic demands point to questionable motives.
Four years later, Heidi has started a new life, living with her mother (Sissy Spacek) and working as a small-town waitress, when a Department of Defense auditor (Shea Whigham) comes to her with questions about why she left the Homecoming facility. Heidi begins to realize that there’s a whole other story behind the story she’s been telling herself.
Julia Roberts stars in season one of the series alongside Jeremy Allen White, Alex Karpovsky, Dermot Mulroney, Hong Chau, and Sydney Poitier co-star in the series, with Marianne Jean-Baptiste, Brooke Bloom, Ayden Mayeri and Jacob Pitts recurring.
All 10 episodes of season one are available now for streaming on Amazon Prime.
