Following the recent introduction of Lina’s mother and stepfather in Married’s season 2 premiere, it’s time to meet another parent.

Joanna Cassidy is set to guest-star on the FX comedy, which follows the ups and downs of married couple Russ (Nat Faxon) and Lina Bowman (Judy Greer).

The actress (Blade Runner, Who Framed Roger Rabbit) will play Sharon, whom FX describes as follows: “Russ’s over-sexed mother who, even at 70, is still on the hunt for Russ’s ‘new daddy.’”

For an exclusive first look at Cassidy’s character, see above and below.

At this time, Cassidy will appear in one episode titled “The Cruise,” which follows Lina in her attempts to help Russ with his relationship with his mother. The episode will air Aug. 27 at 10:30 p.m. ET on FX.  

Cassidy joins the previously announced castings of Frances Conroy and M.C. Gainey as Lina’s parents and Martin Starr as an “awkward loner” who rents from the central couple. 

Married airs Thursdays at 10:30 p.m. ET on FX.
