E! News reports that Shepherd will be introduced at the end of episode 17 and then feature predominantly in episode 18. Cricket is described as “a fun-loving, spontaneous wild child” whose arrival “quickly throws Kate’s family life into chaos.”
Which begs the question — what does it look like when Kate’s family life is not in chaos?
Anyway, it should be a lot of fun. Shepherd is a four-time Emmy nominee and five-time Golden Globe nominee for her comedic work on “Moonlighting” and “Cybill,” with three of those Globe nominations ending in wins for Best Actress in a Comedy/Musical.
You can also see Shepherd returning to “Psych” for Season 8 this spring as Shawn’s mom Maddie Spencer.
“Trophy Wife,” fresh off a hilarious holiday episode that is being rebroadcast on Christmas Day eve if you missed it, returns with new episodes on Tuesday, Jan. 7 at 9:30 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
