Two-time Tony winner Judith Light—and this year's recipient of the honorary Isabelle Stevenson Award at the Tony Awards—has landed a lead role in the second season of Manhunt, according to Deadline. Season 2, titled Manhunt: Lone Wolf, details the search for the 1996 Atlanta Olympics bomber.

The series is currently filming in Pittsburgh, Philadelphia. Jack Huston stars as culprit Eric Rudolph, alongside a cast that also includes Carla Gugino, Gethin Anthony, Jay O. Sanders, and Cameron Britton as Richard Jewell, the police officer—first heralded as a hero then later accused—at the center of the media storm. Light will play Bobi, Jewell's mother.
