Damaris Lewis, most known for her role in Spike Lee's BlacKkKlansman, has been promoted to a series regular on DC Universe's Titans.
She appeared in the second season of the show as Blackfire, the sister, of Starfire (Anna Diop).
Geeks Worldwide first reported the casting news. The website also reports that Blackfire will be the main antagonist for the third season. As reported, similar to Season 1 focusing more on Raven and Season 2 focusing more on Dick, Starfire's story would be the pinnacle of the third season, which is why Lewis' upgrade makes sense.
According to its official description, the second season of Titans follows our heroes, "Dick Grayson, Rachel Roth aka Raven, Kory Anders aka Starfire, Gar Logan aka Beast Boy, Hank Hall and Dawn Granger aka Hawk and Dove, Donna Troy aka Wonder Girl and Jason Todd aka Robin [as they] are learning to co-exist as a new team while facing their toughest enemy yet: the deadly assassin Deathstroke, who threatens to tear this new Titans family apart once more."
Brenton Thwaites stars as Robin, Anna Diop stars as Starfire, Ryan Potter stars as Beast Boy and Teagan Croft stars as Raven. In Season 2, Conor Leslie who stars as Wonder Girl, Minka Kelly who stars as Dove, Curran Walters who stars as Robin and Alan Ritchson who stars as Hawk were all upped to series regulars.
