Actress Rinko Kikuchi will be in the upcoming season

Actress Rinko Kikuchi (28) has been cast in the second season of the hit drama series "LIAR GAME." This is her first regular role in a drama since "Churasan" in 2001.

"Liar Game" stars Erika Toda (21) as an ordinary college student named Nao Kanzaki, and Shota Matsuda (24) as a master swindler named Shinichi Akiyama. They must work together to survive and escape a dangerous game of deception run by a mysterious organization.

Kikuchi plays a new character named Ryo Katsuragi, who does not appear in the original manga that the series is based on. Katsuragi is a former classmate of Akiyama who has become the youngest psychology professor in history at a famous university. She is the only person Akiyama has ever lost to in a battle of wits.

The new season of "LIAR GAME" is airing on Fuji TV at 9:00pm on Tuesday nights. The first episode has been scheduled for November 10. A feature-length film will come after the season's end, opening in theaters on February 6.
