Upcoming Apple TV+ show Roar has added four new cast members, with Betty Gilpin, Meera Syal, Kara Hayward, and Fivel Stewart all reportedly signing on for the anthology series.

According to a Deadline exclusive, the four members will join Nicole Kidman and Alison Brie.

Created by Liz Flahive and Carly Mensch, Roar is based on Cecelia Ahern's book of short stories. The series, produced by Endeavor Content, will feature eight, half-hour episodes, each told from a female point of view.

Gilpin will play Amelia, a woman so strikingly beautiful that her husband builds her a shelf to sit upon in their home.

Syal will play Anu, a woman stuck in a lackluster marriage who decides to shake up her life and return her husband to the very store she first purchased him from.

Stewart will play Jane, an angsty teenage girl who loves horses and doesn't love much of anything else these days; she embarks on a revenge journey when her father is murdered.

Hayward will play Millie, the preacher's daughter and Jane's childhood friend — the last person you'd want to bring on a revenge journey with you.

There's currently no timeline for when we should expect to be able to sit down and watch Roar but the list of names involved is enough to suggest it's something we should definitely do when we can!
