Keke Palmer is new to BERLIN STATION for Season 2, starring as April Lewis, the newest and youngest case officer assigned to Berlin Station on her first field assignment after making her mark as an analyst at Langley. With a bracing combination of millennial intrepidity and old-fashioned sass, April brings a new-guard mentality often at odds with her old-guard colleagues in a system struggling to preserve its besieged identity. But she is no less determined to make her mark in Berlin as she did back home at Headquarters.
