Comedian Sarah Silverman is joining the cast of Showtime’s drama Masters of Sex for Season 2.
We can’t say how much exactly we’ll see of her on Season 2 of the Showtime drama that stars Michael Sheen and Lizzy Caplan as real-life sex researchers William Masters and Virginia Johnson.
Production is currently underway in Los Angeles, and Masters of Sex will premiere on Sunday, July 13 at 10 p.m. ET/PT.
Showtime announced she will “recur in the guest starring role of Helen.”
Silverman will next be seen starring in Seth MacFarlane’s upcoming film, A Million Ways to Die in the West. She also just wrapped production on the drama film I Smile Back, slated for a 2015 release.
