A new season will see the introduction of new characters, and one of those will be Dove, played by Jayla Walton. She looks young in the photo, so perhaps she is one of the children kidnapped for PADRE.
Season 8 will experience a seven-year time jump which required recasting of Mo. Actress Zoey Merchant will play an aged-up Mo or Wren, as labeled in the promo photos (below) released by AMC.
Another new character introduced in episode one is Shrike played by Mya Eshet. She is a member of PADRE.
The description for the first episode of season 1 reads:
"After going undercover at PADRE, Morgan and Madison find themselves back at odds trying to do what’s best for Mo while struggling to accept their new lives under the watchful eye of PADRE."
