Other actors joining Season 2 are Sara Rue (Impastor), Roger Bart (Grace and Frankie), Lucy Punch (Into the Woods), and Tony Hale (Veep, Arrested Development). Their roles have not been revealed, and some of them may be completely new characers for the show. Read what director and producer Barry Sonnenfeld said about the new characters, which author Dan Handler helped create:

We’re creating characters that are not in the book, we’re creating them with Daniel. I was able to convince Daniel that we had to open up the material a little in the book, so there will be some new characters. For instance, in the first season, Larry and Jacquelyn — Larry the waiter who was the anxious clown and Jacquelyn who was the secretary— weren’t really in the books, and they will have a bigger role in the second season. So we’re creating additional great characters that will have entire emotional arcs in season 2. That will hopefully be emotionally satisfying.

Season 2 will be based off the followin five books from the series: “Austere Academy,” “Vile Village,” “Hostile Hospital,” “Ersatz Elevator,” and “Carnivorous Carnival.”
