Franka Potente Joins ‘Dark Matter’ Season 2 As Recurring

And the Dark Matter season 2 casting rollout continues with the announcement that Franka Potente (The BridgeCopperRun Lola RunThe Bourne Identity) will be joining the show in the role of Chief Inspector Shaddick of the Galactic Authority’s Serious Crimes Division.  “She is cool, calculated and determined to prove the crew of the Raza were involved in the destruction of Iriden 3.”

Iriden 3… Iriden 3… Ring a bell?  Mikkei Combine research facility?  White hole technology?  An “accident” that claimed some 15 000 lives?  Yeah, you remember.

This announcement follows to other big casting announcements for the show’s second season…

Well, “involved” doesn’t necessarily mean “caused”! I’m sure our intrepid crew will overcome these trumped up charges. Or at least escape in some kind of perilous adventure.

The first time we are introduced to Franka character you should have the composer put in just the slightest hint of “Extreme Ways.”

I ditto @gforce! They were just the pawns in a much bigger game!

I also agree with @Wayne, love Moby’s Extreme Ways!

Excited to learn Franka was cast!

I was already looking forward to season two — Dark Matter is excellent — adding Franke Potenta to the mix is the icing.

Ah! The things serendipity might be inclined to gift ya when stumbling about searching for something in the dark.

Instantly thought of you
when I stubbed my big greek toe on this gem
via the PBS educators site early this morning.

Just a little side dish to add to your annual Dark Matter season premiere feasts, eh!. -> Its made with bacon & bourbon.

My introduction to Franka was this great movie https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FZoPe7Iz-DM trailer in German but quite self-explaining :-). English title seems to be After five in the forest primeval, don’t know if it’s available with English subtitles.
