Divorce returns for its six-episode third season Monday, July 1 on HBO. Emmy and Golden Globe winner Jessica Parker also serves as executive producer. The new season will follow Frances (Parker) and her ex-husband, Robert (Thomas Haden Church), as they encounter several bombshell surprises that have spun their post-divorce lives in completely unexpected directions.

The series also features Molly Shannon as Diane, Frances’ close friend, who is having to adjust to a humiliating new life ever since her husband Nick (Tracy Letts) was arrested for embezzlement. Diane must now decide how independent she actually wants to be. Talia Balsam plays Dallas, Frances’ other close friend and confidante, who is grappling with her own full-blown mid-life crisis.

'Divorce is painful, but it can also be rewarding,' says the actor.

Becki Newton plays Jackie Giannopolis, Robert’s fiancée, whose life is no bed of roses this season as she deals with being sidelined and her new blended family. Sterling Jerins plays Lila, Frances and Robert’s teenage daughter, who is enjoying her basketball team’s newfound success, and Charlie Kilgore plays Tom, Frances and Robert’s 17-year-old son, who is wrestling with his plans for the future, thus creating new conflicts between Frances and Robert.

Also appearing this season are Dominic Fumusa as Jeremy, Robert’s new over-zealous coaching partner; James Lesure, as Henry, Frances’ even-keeled new love interest who comes with a lot more baggage than expected; Timothy Britten Parker as Frances’ new eccentric boss, Leo; and Patricia Dunnock as Leo’s timid sister, Bev. Amy Sedaris returns as Robert’s off-kilter sister, Cathy, who in just one quick visit manages to throw everything into chaos, and Tracy Letts returns as Diane’s imprisoned husband, Nick, who is using his time in prison for absolutely zero self-reflection or improvement.

On the season premiere, “Charred,” Frances and Robert, having both moved on, discover that their new lives are much more complicated than anticipated. Diane has her first face-to-face with Nick. Dallas continues her quest to connect with her resentful son, Cole.
