TVLine Items: Kominsky Ups Turner, Grease Series on the Move and More

Kathleen Turner Kominsky Method

Sandy’s ex-wife will be making her presence known on The Kominsky Method: The Netflix comedy has added Kathleen Turner as a series regular for the third and final season, our sister site Deadline reports.

Turner previously guest-starred in a Season 2 episode as Roz Volander, a doctor who has a very volatile relationship with her former husband Sandy (Michael Douglas). The gig extends Turner and Douglas’ on-screen history: The pair starred together in the films Romancing the Stone, Jewel of the Nile and War of the Roses.

Turner’s promotion follows last month’s news that Alan Arkin (aka Norman Newlander) will not return to the series for its final run.
