Girlfriends' Guide to Divorce Season 3: Malcolm-Jamal Warner to Woo Retta

First she scores a promotion — and now a Huxtable!

Bravo’s Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce has cast Cosby Show alum Malcolm-Jamal Warner as a love interest for newly-minted series regular Retta, TVLine has learned exclusively. Warner’s character, Darrell, is an upscale contractor, widower and single father who takes a shine to Retta’s Barbara. He’ll turn up early into the comedy’s third season.

Warner’s recent TV credits include stints on TNT’s Major Crimes, USA Network’s Suits and FX’s American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson. He also recurred on Community opposite Retta’s real-life pal Yvette Nicole Brown. (I see some note-comparing in their future,)

Bravo recently took the unusual step of renewing the Lisa Edelstein-fronted Girlfriends’ Guide for three more seasons, before announcing that Season 5 would be the show’s last. Season 3 will be seven episodes long, while Seasons 4 and 5 will have six episodes each.

Production on Season 3, which is slated to launch in 2017, is currently underway in Vancouver.

    I like the show a lot, although season 1 was far, far superior (IMHO) and far more fun than season 2. That said, I was/am very happy that the series was renewed for three more seasons; however, I had assumed the series would have 12-13 episodes per season. Looks like we’ll be seeing about 20 episodes over the next three seasons – however long that takes to film and show on Bravo.

    I guess I am grateful that they didn’t renew the show for 10 more seasons – then we probably would get two episodes per ‘season’. That hardly seems worth the effort. But something is better than nothing – the cast is gold… they just need to try to get back to some of the more fun/humor of season 1.

    Clearly the show went from being a fun time for grown folk, to just a show for middle-aged women desperate and horny for hot men outside their league. Even the gay brother disappeared. So Bravo knew what they were doing putting a definite end point out there with short final seasons.

  3. Brock says:

    The gay brother plot went nowhere and was dodgy. Fair too many ups and downs in the 2nd season. Too much bed hopping and “I love the ex-junkie, no wait, the insecure virgin artist…”

    That’s not enough episodes and I’m tired of waiting. I love this show. Can’t wait also to see Malcolm Jamal Warner. It SUCKS that the show has such little episodes left and will be ending. Maybe Netflix to pick up more seasons? Crossing fingers…

    I absolutely love this show and I am SO UPSET when it isn’t on. The show helped me when I was going through tough times in my marriage; laughter on a weekly basis. This show needs more episodes and each Season is just as great as the prior Season. I so look forward to Season 3 and will not be happy when it finally ends. #mamasdowntime
