Cast Revealed For Disney+ Superhero Comedy ‘Extraordinary’

Earlier this year, Disney+ announced a new Star Original comedy series called “Extraordinary.”  

The eight-part series is created by new talent Emma Moran and follows Jen, a young, self-aware woman who lives in a world where everyone has a superpower… except her.  From BAFTA, Golden Globe, Emmy, and Peabody Award-winning production company Sid Gentle Films, this is a fresh, innovative comedy about being young and finding your feet in a confusing world, when all you’ll ever be is ‘ordinary’.

Today, Deadline revealed the cast for “Extraordinary” which began filming today around London. Máiréad Tyers (Belfast) will play the lead alongside Sofia Oxenham (Poldark) and Siobhán McSweeney (Derry Girls).  Tyers will play Jen, Sofia Oxenham will play Jen’s best friend Carrie, and Siobhán McSweeney will play Jen’s mum.

Bilal Hasna, Luke Rollason, Safia Oakley-Green and Robbie Gee, have also been cast in the series.

“Extraordinary” was one of the first UK originals unveiled for Disney+’s 60 planned European productions by 2024.

The series is executive produced by Sally Woodward Gentle, Lee Morris (Killing Eve) and Charles Dawson.
