Lifetime is staging a Life Goes On reunion later this season on Army Wives.

LuPone will play Lorraine Galassini, the doting mother of Army Captain Nicole Galassini (Kellie Martin). Martin, who made her guest-starring debut on Army Wives Sunday, appeared alongside LuPone in the ABC drama Life Goes On from 1989-93. She will be featured in several episodes of Army Wives as a smart and no-nonsense captain in the Army’s Intelligence Division.

In addition, Anna Chlumsky — best known for her starring role in the 1991 movie My Girl — will also make a guest star appearance as Jessica Anderson, an Army wife whose life is turned upside down after her husband is severely injured in Afghanistan.

Army Wives premiered its sixth season in March.
