The cast has grown with the addition of Jelani Alladin, Noah J. Ricketts, and Linus Roache as regulars. Matt Bomer (who's also a co-executive producer), Allison Williams, and Jonathan Bailey were previously cast.

Based on a novel by Thomas Mallon, Fellow Travelers concerns the stormy relationship between Hawkins Fuller (Bomer), a political operative, and Tim Laughlin (Bailey), an idealistic college graduate, over several decades, beginning with the McCarthy era in Washington and ending with the 2016 election.

Jelani Alladin (The Walking Dead: World Beyond) stars as Marcus Hooks, a journalist who covers the Senate while struggling with the constant racism of that time. Ricketts (Frozen on Broadway) portrays Frankie Hines, a drag performer at an underground gay nightclub often visited by Hawkins and Marcus. Roache (Law & Order, Homeland) is Sen. Wesley Smith—the father of Williams' character Lucy Smith and a father figure to Hawkins.

Fellow Travelers, set to begin filming in late July in Toronto, features Showtime and Fremantle. Ron Nyswaner (Philadelphia, Homeland) adapted Mallon's book and served as executive producer alongside Bomer and Robbie Rogers (All American). Daniel Minahan (Halston, American Crime Story) will exec produce and helm the first two installments.

Alladin is represented by Industry Entertainment, Buchwald, and Goodman Genow; Ricketts by Lasher Group and Artists and Representatives; and Roache by Authentic Talent & Literary Management and Tavistock Wood.
