Genthin will portray Charlies Manson, the famous cult leader, whose “intense charisma draws young followers to him in droves. A jailbird who has spent half his life in prison, Manson dominates his young women followers through a combination of sex, drugs and a paternalistic and caring attitude that masks his inner evil. A dark, seductive force of nature, he recruits young Emma Karn (Dumont) to his ranks — but his interest in her may be far beyond the merely sexual. In fact, he may have embroiled her father in a far-reaching conspiracy.”
Meanwhile, Grey will take on the role as Hodiak’s (Duchovny) new partner and helps to trace the missing Emma Karn, going undercover himself to learn more about Manson.
The 13-episode Aquarius will premiere soon on NBC.
