Lucy Liu Difficult People

Elementary Star Lucy Liu Headed to Difficult People in Season 3

Her CBS procedural may still be on the bubble, but Lucy Liu‘s future is clear — and a little Difficult, apparently.

The Elementary star will recur in the upcoming third season of Hulu’s Difficult People, playing a “morally corrupt, taste-challenged, highly successful alpha female” named Veronica, our sister site Deadline reports. What’s more, Veronica is a book editor… and she’s giving Marilyn (played by Andrea Martin) a chance to write her own.

For the uninitiated, Difficult People stars Billy Eichner (as Billy “Epstein”) and Julie Klausner (as Julie “Kessler”), playing a pair of struggling comedians living in New York City. Martin’s aforementioned character is Julie’s mom.

As previously reported, John Cho will also recur in Season 3, playing Billy’s new boyfriend Todd.

The 10-episode third season of Difficult People premieres on Tuesday, Aug. 8. Will you be tuning in? Drop a comment with your thoughts below.

    Does this mean Elementary’s fate has been sealed?

    • suzi says:

      Maybe, but I hope not. I enjoy Elementary, and really hope to see it renewed.

    • Marc says:

      Andrea Martin seems to be able to do both Difficult People and a broadcast network show (albeit a 13-episode, single-camera 30-minute sitcom). We live in a a different age. Actors can have more than one show assuming the schedule permits it.

      I think Elementary is still on the bubble… tell us, what do you have that’s better ?

  2. Boiler says:

    Hopefully Elementary fate still open. HULU programs may tape at different times

    hopefully elementary will at least get a final season renewal

    • Andrea says:

      That’s what I want…an abbreviated season to tie things up.

      • aleksander eide says:

        yeah agreed too many shows end with a cliffhanger bc showruners/writers dont want to see the truth that the show have low ratings and might get cancelled so imo every show that have a 2nd season should atleast get a short and final season so that every tv show have a proper ending ;)

    Maybe she knows something the rest of us don’t know yet.

  5. Woo-hoo! LL back in comedy! I have a suspicion that #Elementary is either going to Hulu or CBS streaming or will get a straight renewal, but this could be awesome hiatus work!

  6. MMD says:

    I haven’t been hit with very many cancellations because my U.S. network viewing is very limited as I prefer other shows. I do enjoy Elementary, maybe it’s Jonny Lee Miller’s British accent, and would like to see it get a nice ending.

  7. Andrew Hass says:

    I’m sure if Elementary is renewed Lucy Liu can do that and Difficult People at the same time.Plus it says her role on Difficult People is a recurring one.So that could mean she won’t be in every episode.Plus if CBS renews Elementary it could come back mid-season.

  8. Margo Elle says:

    YES! I loved her in Ally McBeal as playing that feisty, mean character. She will be brilliant in this brilliant show!

  9. Pat says:
