Season 2 sees Mary Tyler Moore joining the cast for a multi-episode guest role as Joyce, a retired high-powered executive and mother of Brooke Shields' character Wendy who will challenge her daughter's idealistic notion of "having it all".
Meanwhile, despite ditching her mega-hot boyfriend Kirby Atwood, Kim Raver's magazine editor Nico Reilly will reunite with her flame.
