Ashley Benson has joined the cast of 'Wilderness'.

The 32-year-old star and fellow newcomers Eric Balfour, Claire Rushbrook, Marsha Stephanie Blake and Morgana Van Peebles are to team up with previously announced stars Jenna Coleman and Oliver Jackson-Cohen in the new Prime Video drama series.

Ashley will play Cara in the psychological thriller, which has been adapted from B.E. Jones’s book of the same name.

The story will follow Liv - portrayed by Jenna - as she embarks on a road trip across the US with her husband Will, played by Oliver, after finding out he had an affair.

A scorned Liv decides to take revenge on her cheating husband after Will suggests the British couple go on a road trip in the wilderness to work on their marriage.

Crystal Balint, Natalie Sharp, Geoff Gustafson, and Jake Foy have also joined the cast.

The series is directed and executive produced by So Yong Kim executive produced by Elizabeth Kilgarriff and Marnie Dickens and produced by Firebird Pictures. Filming for the series is currently underway in United States and Canada with the series launching on Prime Video next year in over 240 countries and territories.

Producer Marnie Dickens recently said: "Our heroine Liv says the things you wish you had the guts to, does the things you can only fantasise about and lives by her increasingly outrageous set of rules"

The 'Serpent’ star Jenna recently expressed her excitement about working with Oliver.

She said: "I’m very much looking forward to getting on the road, into the wilderness and the depths beyond.

"Working alongside Oliver, we will be exploring the boundaries of a relationship that is tested in unimaginable ways and in the hands of the wonderful So Yong Kim, Marnie Dickens and Liz Kilgarriff at Firebird Pictures. I know this is going to make for an extraordinary trip."
