Thirysomething Spin-off Series Adds Chris Wood To Its Cast

Posted by at 11:47 am on February 7, 2020

Chris Wood has been cast in a major role in the pilot Thirtysomething(else) at ABC, a followup to the popular drama series Thirtysomething.

The new project will follow an ensemble of new faces playing the grown-up, 30-something children of the original cast reprised by Ken Olin (Michael Steadman), Mel Harris (Hope Murdoch), Timothy Busfield (Elliot Weston) and Patty Wettig (Nancy Weston).

Wood will star as Leo Steadman, Hope and Michael’s son and Janey’s brother. Described as good-looking and charming, Leo is so intent on becoming a “big deal” like his father that he skips steps along the way. His talent and grand ideas are tripped up by his lack of focus and follow-through.

Wood recently appeared on the first two seasons of Supergirl as Mon-El. He is also known for playing Kai Parker on fellow CW series The Vampire Diaries, a role he recently reprised on the spinoff “Legacies.” Wood’s other TV roles include “Containment,” “Mercy Street,” and “The Carrie Diaries.”

Thirtysomething(else) hails from original series creators Marshall Herskovitz and Edward Zwick. Both will serve as showrunners under their Bedford Falls Co. banner along with MGM Television. Zwick will direct. ABC Studios will produce.
