Additionally, Johnny Berchtold and Roberto Montesinos have joined the cast as series regulars with Daniel David Stewart set to recur.

Berchtold plays Richard Beck, a sensitive and artistic college student who lost his mother when he was young and is the only son of businessman Zachary Beck (Anthony Michael Hall). Five years ago, he was the victim of a traumatic kidnapping that left him mutilated.

Montesinos plays Guillermo Villanueva, a DEA agent on the verge of retirement. He is the mentor and father figure of Agent Susan Duffy (Sonya Cassidy). Paunchy with bad knees and a good-natured sense of humor, he loves and cares about Duffy even though they bust each other’s chops all the time.

Stewart plays Steven Elliot, a clean-cut rookie DEA agent. He is a lovable guy who’s fresh-faced, new to the job and still learning.

In Season 3, based on the 7th book in Lee Child’s global best-selling series, Persuader, Reacher must go undercover to rescue an informant held by a haunting foe from his past.

As previously announced, Maria Sten will return as Frances Neagley.
