Taylor’s character and storyline has yet to be revealed. Plot details for the season remain scarce, but the third installment of John Ridley’s anthology series will take place in North Carolina and deal with labor issues.
“John and I are honored that Lili Taylor is returning to the cast of ‘American Crime,’” executive producer Michael McDonald said in a statement. “Lili consistently performs with her soul exposed, and we are so blessed that she has chosen to share that gift with us. We can’t wait for the audience to see the physical and emotional transformation she will undergo this season.”
Taylor grabbed an Emmy nod this year for lead actress in a limited series or movie for the role of Anne Blaine, mother to high school sexual assault victim Taylor, played by Connor Jessup in Season 2. (No word on Jessup’s potential return to Season 3 at this point.)
Before “American Crime” and the resultant awards-show love, Taylor was most recently a regular on Netflix’s “Hemlock Grove” and Fox’s “Almost Human,” and had a slew of guest roles on series like CBS’ recently concluded “The Good Wife.”
Taylor is repped by APA and Circle of Confusion.
