Fran Drescher isn’t the only one who will be Happily Divorced come next year: EW has just exclusively learned that SNL alum Molly Shannon will guest on the TV Land sitcom, in an episode set to air not long after the new year.
Shannon is set to play the Maggie, the sister of Peter (John Michael Higgins), the gay guy who used to be married to — and still lives with — florist Fran (Fran Drescher). Like Fran, Shannon’s character is recently divorced and moves to LA to stay with the odd couple. The casting actually pits Shannon against Drescher, as Drescher’s character doesn’t like Shannon’s Maggie because of an infraction that dates back to the wedding day between Fran and Peter. Some new things come to light about that day after Maggie surfaces in LA.
Shannon is set to tape her episode in the coming weeks.
Happily Divorced returns to TV Land with new episodes on Wednesday, Nov. 28, at 10:30 p.m.

If there’s one thing that TV Land sitcoms are known for besides their old-school laughs, it’s their genius stunt casting of television faves. EW has exclusively learned that Fran Drescher’s show Happily Divorced has just booked two TV greats — Rosie O’Donnell and Dan Akyroyd — to appear on separate episodes slated for the end of May.
O’Donnell will play Katie O’Grady, an old high school friend of Fran (Drescher) and Judi (Tichina Arnold) who arrives to help Fran learn a lesson about her relationship with her overbearing mother Dori (Rita Moreno). Meanwhile, Akyroyd plays a potential love interest — described as “charming and successful” — that Fran’s ex Peter (John Michael Higgins) sets up for her.
Happily Divorced is currently airing its second season on Wednesday at 10:30 p.m. and will wrap its current batch of episodes on June 6.
