A couple of guest stars coming to the neighborhood.
First up, EW has learned that Jerry Springer will appear in the season premiere of ABC’s The Neighbors, playing a virtual moderator (sort of like a Siri hologram). No word on how the part is weaved into the story, but this show takes place in the weirdest neighborhood on TV, so the possibilities are endless.
Meanwhile, EW has also learned that Lucy Davis, of The Office UK fame, is set to appear in the third episode of the season playing a character named Helen, an elegantly dressed and very proper British woman who inherits a fast food restaurant in a divorce settlement. As new owner, Helen crosses paths with Jackie, who starts working there this season (yes, outside the community!) and is aiming for a promotion. The problem? “An incident” will apparently affect the possibility of Jackie getting a raise she seeks.
The Neighbors returns Sept. 20 on ABC.
