Michaela McManus, David Meunier and Chris Sheffield sign on for NBC's Charles Manson series

By Kyle Johnson,

Three more castmembers have been added to NBC's upcoming Charles Manson event series Aquarius.

Michaela McManus, David Meunier and Chris Sheffield have joined David Duchovny and Gethin Anthony in the series, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

McManus landed the recurring role in the 13-episode series as Duchovny's character Sam Hodiak's ex-girlfriend Grace. Though the two are no longer together, they remain friends and she calls the Los Angeles police sergeant after her daughter Emma fails to come home.

Meunier joins as Roy, who is Manson's muscle and is said to be willing to violently protect his boss and his interests when the situation calls for it. Lastly, Sheffield is on board to play Hodiak's son.

As previously reported, the series is set in the 1960s where Hodiak finds himself investigating Manson, played by Anthony, who starts out as a small-time crook, but has since begun to create his own cult, with Emma (Emma Dumont) involved.

The period drama was created by John McNamara who also will executive produce with Duchovny, Becky Clements, Alexandra Cunningham, Jonas Pate, Marty Adelstein and Melanie Greene.

Should Aquarius's first season do well, the series could return for several more with plans in place to show the Rosemary LaBianca and Sharon Tate murders.
