Canadian and CSA-winning actorÂ Lyriq BentÂ (THE AFFAIR) joins the cast in Season 2 as Joyce Warwick Boyle, the new Interim Police Chief at Bishop PD.

As his admiration for Sam turns romantic, Harley and Dave discover Boyle is hiding an alarming and mysterious past.
CARTERÂ revolves around Harley Carter (Oâ€™Connell), the star of a hit detective series who decides to take a break from Hollywood.
