Michelle Nuñez is ruthless…
The Afro-Latina actress has been cast as a series regular of BET+’s drama series Tyler Perry’s Ruthless.
Nuñez is among a list of new cast members that includes Stevie Baggs, Jr., Colin McCalla, Samantha L. Thomas, Alise Willis, and Jael Pettigrew.
Three episodes will exclusively premiere on November 26 on the streaming platform with new episodes launching every Thursday.
As the season continues, many of the faithful followers have begun to uncover the evil that exists beneath the surface of the Rakudushis movement. Armed with this knowledge, Ruth and several new fearful cult members try to take control of their individual destinies. The attempts will prove to be almost impossible for anyone who does not have allies they think they can trust. Viewers will see more sex, lies, and murder in this cult that is living up to its fate. Being aware of false prophets has never reigned more true.
The six new cast members join Ruthless stars Melissa L. Williams, Matt Cedeño, Lenny D. Thomas, Yvonne Senat Jones, Baadja-Lyne Odums, Jaime Callica, Nirine S. Brown, Blue Kimble, Stephanie Charles, Hervé Clermont, Anthony Bless, and Bobbi Baker.
The series is executive produced, written, and directed by Tyler Perry.
Nuñez will portray Zane, who wants to leave the cult but is much more fearful and tentative than her friend Paula.
