Late last month Netflix announced the development of the series “October Faction” based on the successful DW comic book series written by Steve Niles of the same name. Today, Netflix announced that actors Tamara Taylor (Bones, Altered Carbon) and J.C. Mackenzie (Molly’s Game, Vinyl, The Irishman) has been cast as the show’s leads, Fred and Deloris Allen.

“October Faction” follows globetrotting monster hunters Fred and Deloris Allen who, after the death of Fred’s father, return to their hometown in upstate New York with their teenage children Geoff and Viv. As the family adjusts, Fred and Deloris must hide their identities as members of a secret organization, and our heroes quickly discover that their new small-town setting isn’t as idyllic as it seems.

The couples children will be played by Aurora Burghart (Sex Education) and Gabriel Darku (Impulse, ReBoot: The Guardian Code, American Gods).

The series also includes Wendy Crewson (The Vow, Room), Megan Follows (Reign, Anne of Green Gables) and Stephen McHattie (Watchmen, Maurice Richard).

The series was adapted and created by Damian Kindler (Sleepy Hollow, Krypton) who serves as creator, showrunner and executive producer. 10 episodes of “October Faction” have been ordered and are planned for a 2019 release.
