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.
