Kunal Nayyar (“The Big Bang Theory”), Ken Jeong (“The Hangover” movies, “Community”) and Billy Gardell (“Mike & Molly”) are set to return to TBS’ hit original series “Sullivan & Son” during the show’s upcoming third season.
Last year marked the first appearances on the show for Nayyar and Jeong. Gardell has appeared in both previous seasons.
“Sullivan & Son,” which ranked as one of basic cable’s top 10 original sitcoms of 2013 with adults 18-49, is set to launch its third season with back-to-back episodes Tuesday, June 24, at 10 p.m.
Popular comedian Steve Byrne stars as Steve Sullivan, a former corporate attorney who left New York to run the family bar with his parents in Pittsburgh. The ensemble cast includes Dan Lauria (“The Wonder Years”), Christine Ebersole (“Royal Pains,” “Amadeus”), Brian Doyle-Murray (“Groundhog Day,” “The Middle”), Jodi Long (“Beginners”), Valerie Azlynn (“Tropic Thunder”), Vivian Bang (“Yes Man”), Owen Benjamin (“The House Bunny”) Ahmed Ahmed (“Iron Man”) and Roy Wood Jr. (“Last Comic Standing”).
In Season 3, Nayyar will return as Neal, the ultimate ladies’ man who tried to steal a few hearts during the bar’s Ladies’ Night last season.
Jeong will return as Jason, Steve’s brother-in-law, whose workaholic ways were putting strain on his marriage… that is. until he let loose at the bar.
Gardell will return for the third consecutive season as Lyle Winkler, a quirky comic-book collector and youth hockey coach who has constant run-ins with Steve and the bar regulars.
“Sullivan & Son” is executive-produced by Vince Vaughn (“Wedding Crashers”), Peter Billingsley (“Iron Man”), F.J. Pratt (“Glory Daze”), Dan Cohen (“Glory Daze”), Howard J. Morris (“According to Jim”), and Rob Long (Cheers).
