“We’ve changed our storytelling dramatically,” he told The Hollywood Reporter. “We’re going through much deeper dives. The culture is going through a major shift right now, especially with gender. Let’s just go and find interesting people and see where it leads us.

“It sounds like what we always do, where we sit down and ask ourselves, ‘What is it we do again? Why do we want people on this show?’ We have a new [casting] team in place, and we’ve come up with the most diverse cast we’ve ever had, no compare. Even the cast noticed it when they were all together at Ponderosa and we met with them. They all said: ‘Oh my God. There are so many different people from so many different walks of life.’”

Take a look at the full list of cast members below.
