In season two, Leaphorn is rejoined by his former deputy turned private eye, Jim Chee (Kiowa Gordon), when their separate cases come together as they pursue the same suspect. Leaphorn and Chee are helped by Sgt. Manuelito (Jessica Mattten) and Valencia County Sheriff Gordon Sena (A Martinez) as they all chase an assassin who is now chasing them.
The series also stars Joseph Runningfox as Henry Leaphorn, Lt. Leaphorn’s father, as well as Deanna Allison as Emma Leaphorn, Elva Guerra as Sally Growing Thunder, Jeri Ryan as Rosemary Vines and Nicholas Logan as Colton Wolf.
