Cassian has a showrunner in Stephen Schiff, who previously worked on the hit FX drama, The Americans. Also returning in the cast is Alan Tudyk's K-2SO, Cassian's helpful droid companion. Tudyk took to Twitter to confirm his involvement with the series. No other cast members for the show have been revealed at this time.
