Haas (24) will portray an employee of Aster Corps, the research facility that has set its sights on Kiefer Sutherland's Martin and his son Jake.

Sharbino, meanwhile, will portray the gifted daughter of Lucy Robbins, the character played by another new series regular, Maria Bello.

As for what fans can expect overall on Season 2? Fox has released the following tease/statement/synopsis:

The story setting shifts from New York to Los Angeles, where single father MARTIN BOHM and his gifted son JAKE are on the run from the mysterious and possibly sinister research facility Aster Corps, which had shown tremendous interest in exploiting Jake’s ability to perceive the hidden patterns that connect people around the world. After arriving on the West Coast, the father-son team met distraught mother LUCY ROBBINS and now are determined to help find her missing – and equally gifted – daughter AMELIA (Sharbino). During their search, their paths will cross with Aster Corps genius CALVIN NORBURG (Haas), as well as TREVOR WILCOX, a journalist and old friend of Martin’s.
