Returning as cancer-striken Cathy, Laura Linney gets drunk and high with her on-screen husband Oliver Platt.
"The Big C" will return with its cancer humor when the second season premieres this summer. A promo to the new round has been released, hinting how Laura Linney's Cathy is determined to better her health. In the meantime, she manages to have fun with her husband, Oliver Platt's Paul, as they get drunk and smoke weed together.
Screen Crave previously reported that Cathy will be "out of denial and really facing" her cancer in the new season. In light of Cathy's changes, some other characters will also grow and change. Meanwhile, Cynthia Nixon's Rebecca will return to season 2, and her relationship with Cathy will be "played out".
Being cast for the new season are Alan Alda and Hugh Dancy. The former will make guest appearance as an oncologist who Cathy meets after her previous treatment failed, while the latter takes a recurring role.
"The Big C" will return Monday, June 27 at 10:30 P.M. ET/PT on Showtime.
