CBS has given a 13-episode second-season pickup to the suspense thriller Salvation, starring the 39-year-old Venezuelan-born Chilean-British actor.
The second season of Salvation is set to air in summer 2018.
Salvation, which had a decent freshman performance by summer ratings standards and is owned by CBS, centers on Liam Cole, an MIT grad student, and Darius Tanz, a tech superstar, who bring Pentagon official Grace Barrows a staggering discovery – that an asteroid is just months away from colliding with Earth. Now with the added threat of nuclear war on the horizon, they work together with Secretary of Defense Harris Edwards to find a way to divert the asteroid, stop the war and save humanity before time runs out.
In addition to Cabrera, the series stars Jennifer Finnigan, Charlie Rowe, Jacqueline Byers, Rachel Drance and Ian Anthony Dale.
