Jacinto, who is best known for his role in the hit NBC sitcom The Good Place, will join Lee Jung-jae and Jodie Turner-Smith — both of whom were also just cast in the series — in an as-of-yet undisclosed role. Production on The Acolyte is set to begin sometime later this year in London, with the series still lacking an official release date.

The Acolyte is described as a mystery-thriller that will take viewers into a galaxy of shadowy secrets and emerging dark-side powers that will be set within the final days of the High Republic era. Further details about its characters haven’t been revealed yet, but the project title references a Sith in the beginning stages of their training under an experienced Sith Lord.

The Disney+ series will be written and executive produced by Leslye Headland (Russian Doll), who will also be serving as the showrunner. Production is expected to begin this fall.

In addition to The Acolyte, Lucasfilm is also currently developing a number of Star Wars projects, including The Mandalorian season three, Andor, and more.
