TNT’s hit drama Perception, starring Emmy® and Screen Actors Guild Award® winner Eric McCormack (Will & Grace, Who Is Clark Rockefeller?), is set to return for its exciting second season on Tuesday, June 25, at 10 p.m. (ET/PT). In Perception, McCormack plays Dr. Daniel Pierce, a unique and eccentric neuroscience professor whose paranoid schizophrenia helps him solve crimes for the FBI. Rachael Leigh Cook (She’s All That) co-stars as FBI agent and former student Kate Moretti, who recruits Pierce to help her with her toughest cases. Unlike her colleagues, Kate is willing to look past Daniel’s peculiarities.
What to Look for in Season II
As the second season of Perception opens, Pierce’s personal life is even more complicated than usual. He finds it difficult to walk away from his imaginary friendship with Natalie Vincent, but he must do so in order to embark on a romance with his doctor, Caroline Newsome – both played by Kelly Rowan (The O.C.). Award-winning actor LeVar Burton (Roots, Star Trek: The Next Generation) returns in season two as Pierce’s best friend, Paul Haley, who serves as dean at the university. Perception also stars Arjay Smith (The Day After Tomorrow) as Max Lewicki, who serves as Pierce’s teaching assistant whose primary job is to keep Pierce in line and on task.
Also in season two, special guest star Scott Wolf (Party of Five, V, Everwood) joins the cast as Donnie, Kate’s soon-to-be ex-husband. A charismatic, fast-rising Assistant U.S. Attorney who recently transferred back to Chicago, Donnie seems less concerned with doing what’s right than with doing what’s right for Donnie. While he claims his transfer back to Chicago was completely random, it’s clear he has a hidden agenda involving Kate.
Perception, which comes to TNT from ABC Studios, was created by executive producer Ken Biller (Star Trek: Voyager, Smallville) and co-executive producer Mike Sussman (Star Trek: Enterprise), with McCormack serving as producer.
