The Big C Gets Angry

May 13, 2011

First the good news: Gabourey Sidibe will be back for season 2 of Showtime‘s The Big C. The role will continue to be billed as “Special Guest Star,” but she’s there. Yes, I just sighed in relief. Not that the show couldn’t go on without Sidibe or that we expected her to leave; I am just relieved because I like this young lady and am happy to see her in a role, getting work and staying happy. That being said, let’s discuss what happens next.

Summer has gone and fall has arrived in Cathy Jamison’s (Emmy winner Laura Linney) world. Her secret is out, her cancer a fact and we’re moving to the next stage (anger). Whereas the first season dealt with Cathy’s denial of the disease, we’ll be treated to her taking the cancer on as an adversary, fighting for survival, as this season unfolds.

In addition to Sidibe, Cynthia Nixon returns as a guest star and we’ll also get appearances from Alan Alda and Hugh Dancy. The new season begins June 27 at 10:30 PM. Below, the season 2 teaser.
