If you haven’t been following ABC’s Suburgatory … what is wrong with you? Go watch it online or something! Anyway, if you’ve been keeping up, you’ll remember that a big part of last season was Tessa (Jane Levy) coming to terms with her mother leaving her. Well, (SPOILER ALERT) since the season ended with Tessa’s maternal grandmother coming to Chatswin to see her, it only makes sense that Tessa would finally get the chance to confront her mother, who is reportedly going to be played by Malin Akerman.

As fans will recall, Tessa’s mom has been out of her life since shortly after Tessa’s birth and in the new season, mum finally works up the courage to reach out to her daughter, hoping to put the past behind them. Creator Emily Kapnek weighs in, saying: “I’m so pleased that Malin Akerman has signed on for an arc on Suburgatory. I’m a huge, nerdy fan and this was an extensive search for the right actress to play such a pivotal role in our show. It turned out to be well worth the wait. She’s funny, gorgeous, and incredibly charismatic and I know her chemistry with Jeremy Sisto and Jane Levy is going to be off the charts. Malin is a comedy writer’s dream, both beautiful and comedically fearless. I’m over the moon about her agreeing to play Alex.” Suburgatory returns to ABC Oct. 17 in a new timeslot following Modern Family, 9:30 ET.
