Two more actors have joined the cast of Dead Boy Detectives as the series finds its Litty and Kingham.

Work is continuing on HBO Max’s upcoming Dead Boy Detectives series based on characters created by Neil Gaiman and Matt Wagner.

The official series description states, “It’s a fresh take on a ghost story that explores loss, grief, and death through the lens of Edwin Payne (George Rexstrew) and Charles Rowland (Jayden Revri), two dead British teenagers, and their very alive friend, Crystal Palace (Kassius Nelson). So, it’s a lot like a vintage detective series — only darker and on acid.”

The new cast members are Caitlin Reilly (Hacks) and Max Jenkins (Dead to Me), who will be playing Litty and Kingham on a recurring basis. The characters are described as being “tiny foul-mouthed dandelion sprites. They are a rude annoyance to the Dead Boys.”

Dead Boy Detectives was ordered to series last April. No target release date has been announced as of yet.
