TV Land's hit original sitcom Hot in Cleveland returns to heat up the network's summer line-up with 12 new episodes beginning Wednesday, June 15 at 10 PM ET/PT, immediately followed by the new sitcom Happily Divorced, starring Fran Drescher, as you all know already. New episodes pick up right where the show left off in March: Elka had just been convicted of being in possession of stolen goods and is now on the run, while Melanie, Victoria and Joy are left wondering where she is. Now, the women must scramble to find Elka and get her back in time for her sentencing, and they find her in the last place anyone would expect...Amish country.
Upcoming Hot in Cleveland episodes will see a new writing job for Melanie at Woman's Day magazine, Joy reconnecting with her long-lost son, an embarrassing mistaken identity for Victoria, Elka finding a new special someone and a jaw-dropping cliffhanger that will leave everyone stunned.
Amazing guest stars – all heavy hitters from television and film – are lined up to round out the run of season two, including writer and actor Buck Henry (Get Smart, 30 Rock), Cedric the Entertainer (The Steve Harvey Show), Dick Van Patten (Eight is Enough), John Mahoney (Frasier), Doris Roberts (Everybody Loves Raymond), Jennifer Love Hewitt (Ghost Whisperer), George Wendt (Cheers), Mindy Cohn (The Facts of Life), Richard Burgi (Desperate Housewives), Antonio Sabato Jr. (The Bold and the Beautiful), Michael McMillian (True Blood) and returning favorites Amy Sedaris, (Strangers with Candy), Huey Lewis (Just Shoot Me!) and Wayne Knight (Seinfeld, TV Land's upcoming sitcom The Exes).
