A number of new faces have been added to “Condor” season 2 in its return and these are Rita Volk, Constance Zimmer, Eric Johnson, Toby Leonard Moore, Rose Rollins, Jonathan Kells Phillips, Alexie Bondar and Isidora Goreshter.
“Condor” season 2 will focus on Joe’s return to the CIA in Virginia to avenge the death of Uncle Bob (played by William Hurt). He will try to uncover the Russian traitor who was responsible for Bob’s murder but he’ll have to face his darker past in the process, as per Deadline.

Rollins will play Eva, Gordon’s wife and Mae’s friend. Phillips will play Volk’s boss, while Bondar will play a colonel with the SVR.
