Van Grootel stated, “I am really excited and beyond thankful to be a part of the next season.”
He will join new cast member and fellow Australian actor, Alistair Cooke ("The Horizon", "Deep Water").
2018 has proven to be an exciting year for the talented actor.

Unverified won Best Online series from the prestigious Accolade Global Film Festival. The second season will move its focus from screenwriters to music producers. One of the producers stated “Cooper’s character will have to engage in various stunts in season 2… after hearing how he tackled the driving in "Go Karts", we know Cooper will rise to the occasion and we look forward to increasing the prominence of his character.”
