The ensemble cast includes Sam Neill as Sheriff John Bell Tyson, Shamier Anderson as Trevante Ward, "an extraordinary soldier stationed in Afghanistan," Golshifteh Farahani and Firas Nassar as Aneesha and Ahmed Malik, a husband and wife who are raising a family in Long Island, and Shioli Kutsuna as Mitsuki, "an intelligent member of mission control in Japan's space program JASA," along with many more (Variety).
