Lost alumna Elizabeth Mitchell is set for a recurring role on the second season Netflix’s breakout YA drama series Outer Banks. Production on Season 2 is currently underway in South Carolina. The coming-of-age story follows a tight-knit group of local teens (the “Pogues”) in the beach vacation destination of the Outer Banks of North Carolina. When a hurricane kills the power for the summer season, it sets off a chain of illicit events that force the friends to make life-altering decisions. Mitchell will play Limbrey, a long-time Charleston native; a compelling woman with a level of toxicity and menace underneath her seemingly courteous ways. Best known for her Emmy-nominated performance as Dr. Juliet Carlson on six seasons of J.J. Abrams’ ABC series, Lost, Mitchell recurred on Season 3 of Syfy’s The Expanse, and was a series regular on Freeform’s Dead Of Summer, NBC’s Revolution and ABC’s V. She’s repped by APA and Link Entertainment.
