EXCLUSIVE: Sarah Jones (For all humanity, A man in fulland Oscar-nominated actress Adriana BarrazaBabylon, Blue Beetle) are set for regular roles in Prime Video’s comic series The cat (w/t). They join the previously announced lead actors Diego Boneta and Lorenza Izzo.

Based on the comic series The black cat by Richard Dominguez, The cat follows Frank Guerrero (Boneta), who returns to Mexico after the death of his father and finds himself up to his neck in a nest of vipers – his estranged family – vying for control of his father’s business empire. But Frank’s grief is interrupted when he learns that his only inheritance, a seemingly worthless piece of land on the border, lies on the hideout of a famous costumed vigilante – his father, “El Gato.” Now Frank is in the crosshairs. To survive, he must solve decades-old mysteries and uncover the truth about his father’s ties to a modern-day terror plot.

Ash believes the family farm at the heart of our series is a front for a criminal enterprise. As she trains Frank as a CIA agent, she will find herself dangerously attracted to him. She’s well-educated, physically fit, and seemingly born for it. But she’s playing a deadly game, and if she wants to survive, she’ll have to be on her guard.

Barraza plays Alma, who in the 1970s discovers that her husband leads a double life: he works on the side as a disguised vigilante – El Gato Negro. Alma has worked side by side with him for years, providing operational support to his missions. She is careful with her words and keeps secrets like a safe. Alma thought her old life was behind her, but now she is a widow and is drawn back into a world of masks. In the series, she will form an unlikely partnership with our hero Frank – her husband’s bastard son. This will test the openness of her heart. This is Alma, back in the saddle for one last ride.
