Netflix’s crime mockumentary series American Vandal has returned for a second season, and this time teen sleuths Sam Ecklund (Griffin Gluck) and Peter Maldonado (Tyler Alvarez) are investigating a new criminal: the Turd Burglar. American Vandal season 2 moves from Oceanside, California to Bellevue, Washington as Sam and Peter try to find the real culprit behind a series of horrifying poop-related attacks on the prestigious St. Bernadine Catholic School. With a new school and a new mystery comes a new cast of suspects, so we’ve got a breakdown of the actors joining the show this season, and who they play.
Because of the change in location, Sam and Peter are the only returning characters from American Vandal season 1. The second season of the show mixes a little reality in with the fiction, with the first episode explaining that the “Who Drew The D**ks?” investigation went viral on Vimeo and was picked up with an expanded budget by Netflix. In addition to Netflix offering to finance a second season, Sam and Peter were given permission to make a documentary about the Turd Burglar as their senior project. They jet off to Washington, and that’s where we meet the following cast of shady characters.
