'Raising Hope': Meet Burt's parents, plus a musical recap of Season 1

shirley-jones-lee-majors-raising-hope.jpg"Raising Hope" will fill in a little bit more of the Chance family tree this season -- with a pair of pop-culture icons from the 1970s.

Shirley Jones ("The Partridge Family") and Lee Majors ("The Six Million Dollar Man") will play Burt's ( Garret Dillahunt) parents in an episode airing early this season, TVLine reports.

They'll be the first set of Jimmy's ( Lucas Neff) grandparents we meet -- Virginia's ( Martha Plimpton) folks remain a mystery -- although we did hear a little about them last season. In the episode "Snip, Snip" Burt mentions that his mom's maiden name was also Chance and notes he has "a close family." So, um, yeah.

If you need a refresher on "Raising Hope's" first season, recurring character Shelly ( Kate Micucci) has you covered. The video below functions both as a recap of last year and a nice little tribute to the late "Gilligan's Island" and "The Brady Bunch" creator Sherwood Schwartz, master of the expository theme song.

"Raising Hope" premieres at 9:30 p.m. ET Tuesday (Sept. 20) on FOX.
