Frances Conroy has been tapped for a role in 'The Mist'

Frances Conroy has joined the cast of The Mist — Spike’s upcoming television series based on the book of the same name by Stephen King.

The Mist tells the story of a town driven mad by a seemingly harmless mist that seeps in, creating immense havoc.

Frances Conroy will play “Nathalie,” who, according to, is “a modern day ecological martyr. While she is seemingly more connected to nature than most people, her instincts about her fellow humans are dead on.”

Conroy has previously starred in Six Feet Under and American Horror Story. She has won one Golden Globe and three Screen Actors Guild Awards.

The Mist is set to begin production this summer and will debut in 2017. It is being produced by TWC-Dimension Television and Spike.SuperFable
