Odd Mom Out Returns for 3rd Season in July; Netflix Has Friends from College Over in July

Odd Mom Out

Bravo Media's original scripted comedy series Odd Mom Out, starring Jill Kargman, Abby Elliott, Andy Buckley, KK Glick, Sean Kleier, and Joanna Cassidy returns for season three on Wednesday, July 12 at 10 pm ET/PT. The series is created by Kargman, who plays a satirical version of herself trying to coexist with the demanding hierarchy of New York's exclusive Upper East Side mommy clique. This season, as victims of Ernie Krevitt's Ponzi scheme grapple with their new financial reality, Jill juggles the demands of her relentless mother-in-law and hormonal tweenage daughter while struggling with her own desires to feel young and relevant. Odd Mom Out season two delivered 1.1 million total viewers, up +5% above the prior season, making it one of the few returning ad-supported scripted series that saw growth in 2016. Watch a sneak peek of this season.

Joining the cast this season is Christine Taylor (Search Party, Dodgeball) playing Brooke's older sister, Barrett, a perfectionist homemaker who could make Martha Stewart look like a slob; Meredith Hagner (Search Party, The Set up) as Brooke's younger sister, who has mastered the art of cloying condescension; Alysia Reiner (Better Things, OITNB) as a by-the-book prosecutor trying the murder case of the century; Emma Myles (OITNB, Law & Order: SVU) as a crystal-wearing Wiccan whose testimony shocks the nation in said murder trial; and Dan Butler (Frasier, The Mist) playing Joe, a man who drops some serious knowledge on a lost Lex. Additionally, this season features notable guest stars Dave Navarro (Ink Master, Jane's Addiction) playing himself - paying off an epic night for Jill and Vanessa - and Wendy Williams (Host, The Wendy Williams Show) playing herself landing an exclusive interview with someone from the von Webers' past bent on taking down the family by spilling more tea than the Boston Tea Party.

This season, while the UES one-percenters find themselves in financial "distress," Candace seeks refuge by moving in with Jill and Andy, turning their lives upside down. Jill struggles to deal with how fast her daughter is growing up and launching her photography career, but she reaches a breaking point, making a surprising decision that has repercussions for Candace. Andy gets involved in school committees for the kids and takes on more than he can chew. Just when Candace is starting to get comfortable in Jill's home, she is sequestered for a murder case, and in true Candace fashion, she turns jury duty into her playpen. Brooke becomes the breadwinner of her family, but as she attempts to expand her empire, a former employee goes rogue, threatening everything she has accomplished. Meanwhile, the ripple effects of the Ponzi scheme cause Lex to consider a new career that is out of this world. And Vanessa tries to be a constant support for Jill while challenged with getting out of her comfort zone to try to keep the flames alive with her ex-husband Graham.
