Duke will play an Alzheimer’s-afflicted mother of a murder victim.

According to IMDb, Duke’s first TV series appearance was back in 1957 (Kraft Theatre) which later lead to her namesake sitcom Patty Duke Show (1963-66), followed by shows like It Takes Two (1982), Hail to the Chief (1985) and Karen’s Song (1987).

The show returns Monday, Sept. 19.

Scream queen cast in 'Hawaii Five-0'

Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Hostel: Part II actress Lauren German has been added to CBS’ Hawaii Five-0 team. (TVLine first reported the story.)

German has a recurring role next season as a “smart, beautiful, ex-Homeland Security Officer hand picked by the governor to join the Five-0 task force, not to just help them fight crime, but keep them in check.”

She joins veteran actor Tom Sizemore and ex-Lostie Terry O’Quinn as new hires for the show’s second season.

Tom Sizemore joins 'Hawaii Five-0' for season 2 arc -- EXCLUSIVE

Hawaii Five-0 has landed another well-known actor for its second season: Tom Sizemore is joining the CBS action-drama as a the head of Internal Affairs for a multi-episode arc.

The tough-guy performer best known for Saving Private Ryan, Red and Black Hawk Down will play a former Detroit Homicide Detective turned head of Hawaii police’s IA unit. After the events of last season, he is actively investigating the Five-0 unit and he’s not cutting them any slack (despite our heroes having the support of the new Governor).

The casting comes on the heels of Lost star Terry O’Quinn signing onto the series last week in a recurring role as a Navy Seal Lt. Commander who trained Steve McGarrett (Alex O’Loughlin).

Hawaii launched strong last fall and represented one of the few freshman shows to earn a second season. The cast additions could help bolster interest in the series this fall as it continues airing in its competitive Monday night period.

Masi Oka on 'Hawaii Five-O': I'm a series regular!

Look who’s becoming an islander! Heroes alum Masi Oka told EW that he’ll become a series regular on Hawaii Five-O when the drama returns for a second season on CBS this fall. “They were kind enough to offer me more regular work,” Oka told EW while walking the red carpet of the Super 8 premiere on Wednesday. “I don’t know yet if it I will be needed for every episode because they are writing the next season now but Dr. Max Bergman will be more involved. I guess they will need more help from the coroner. I think he got a good response from viewers so they are looking to featuring him more

“I’m happy because I like the show, the guys are great to work with and it’s Hawaii. Who doesn’t want to work in paradise?” Oka continued. “I hope they delve into his personal life more. Max Bergman is a nut and I’d liked to know more about who he is and what he does with his time but that is not up to me. But I think there is a lot left to develop with him. I think it is going to be a fun job. It was not hard for me to accept the offer. We start in July. I am just excited. I love the cast. I love the crew. I liked the original show but I think they have done a great job updating it.”

The news was first reported on TVLine.
