Nick Gomez has snatched another two years of work…
Verizon has ordered seasons 2 and 3 of the hit teen horror-comedy Snatchers, starring the Latino actor.
Hailing from Warner Bros. Digital Studios’ Stage 13 brand for go90, the series, which premiered in June, will go into production for Season 2 in New Mexico and starts principal photography this week.
Created, written and executive produced by Stephen Cedars, Benji Kleiman and Scott Yacyshyn, Snatchers centers on Sara (Mary Nepi), a status-obsessed high school student who, in order to preserve her social standing, loses her virginity and surprisingly wakes up extremely pregnant — by an alien.
Season 2 picks up with Sara and Hayley (Gabrielle Elyse) in over their heads against the evolving alien threat. With Sara’s mom, Kate (JJ Nolan), in the clutches of the creatures, the girls have to enlist help from Skyler (Austin Fryberger), the alien baby-daddy himself.
Gomez, who portrays Oscar Ruiz, is part of the returning cast that includes Ashley Argota as Kiana.
Kleiman and Cedars direct.
Gomez’s previous credits include appearances on The Walking Dead, General Hospital, Longmire, Major Crimes, Drop Dead Diva and Nashville.
