'Raising Hope' Season 3: Melanie Griffith set to play Sabrina's mom

melanie-griffith-gi.jpg"Raising Hope" introduced Sabrina's ( Shannon Woodward) wealthy father last season. This season, the show will introduce us to her mom.

And it turns out she may look a lot like Melanie Griffith: The Oscar- and Emmy-nominated actress is in final talks to appear in multiple episodes of the show's third season, E! Online reports.

In the Season 2 episode "Sabrina Has Money," the show established that Sabrina had turned her back on her wealthy family to work at Howdy's market, where she met and subsequently fell for Jimmy ( Lucas Neff). The episode also introduced her dad, played by Stephen Root, but we didn't meet her mom.

Assuming Griffith's deal gets finalized, she could make FOX's Tuesday comedy lineup something of a family affair. Her daughter, Dakota Johnson, stars in the network's new series "Ben and Kate," which will air after "Raising Hope" on Tuesday nights.

"Raising Hope" premieres Tuesday, Oct. 2 on FOX.
