“The Big C” will wrap up its run with a four-part limited event series titled “The Big C: Hereafter,” Showtime announced Thursday.
Laura Linney, Oliver Platt, John Benjamin Hickey, Gabriel Basso and Gabourey Sidibe will star in the upcoming season, with Kathy Najimy and Issac Mizrahi to guest star. Mizrahi has been booked to play himself, while Najimy will play Cathy’s no-nonsense therapist.
“It has been a true joy watching someone as gifted as Laura Linney take Cathy Jamison on her journey these past three seasons,” said David Nevins, President of Entertainment, Showtime Networks Inc. “We wanted to take particular care to honor the fans of the show with a compelling and memorable conclusion. We thank Laura, Jenny Bicks, Darlene Hunt, and “The Big C’s” gifted ensemble of actors, producers and crew for the remarkable work they have created.”
The final season premiere date is yet to be announced.
