cherry-jonesEmmy-winning actress Cherry Jones has signed on for Season 3 of ABC’s “American Crime.” Jones, who will have a recurring role, will play the matriarch of a large family agricultural operation.

She joins previously announced returning cast members Felicity Huffman, Timothy Hutton, Connor Jessup, Lili Taylor, as well as Regina King — who just won her second Emmy Award for her work in the series. Benito Martinez, who appeared in the first season, is returning as well, but in a larger role this time around.

Jones is now also starring in Amazon’s “Transparent,” which bows its third season on Sept. 23. The third season of “American Crime” will focus on workers’ rights and reproductive rights. And as compared to the first and second seasons, which centered on a single person’s guilt or innocence, this season will focus on our greater complicity.

Season 3 will be set in North Carolina, where the issue of LGBT rights has been dominating headlines. But this season will be shot in Los Angeles, as the production recently obtained California tax credits. Production began Monday morning. ABC renewed the limited series for an eight-episode Season 3 for a planned 2017 premiere.
