MADtv is bringing out the big guns to help usher in its new era on The CW.
Nicole Sullivan, who starred on the original MADtv from 1995 to 2001, and Will Sasso (1997–2002) will guest-star in the new series’ premiere on July 26 (9/8c), TVLine has learned exclusively. Bobby Lee (2001–2009) is also confirmed to appear in an upcoming episode.
Since leaving MADtv, Sullivan has recurred on Scrubs, Cougar Town and The King of Queens, in addition to starring in her own short-lived Lifetime sitcom Rita Rocks; Sasso went on to appear on shows like Justified, Shameless, Another Period and Modern Family, among others; and Lee has popped up on Family Guy, Animal Practice and Netflix’s Love.
Each episode of the new MADtv will feature appearances from two original cast members, along with its regular cast: Carlie Craig (Todrick), Chelsea Davison (@Midnight writer), Jeremy D. Howard, Amir K (Argo), Lyric Lewis (Brooklyn Nine-Nine), Piotr Michael (Disney Channel’s Wander Over Yonder), Michelle Ortiz (Life in Pieces) and Adam Ray (the voice of Ghostbusters‘ Slimer).
