It’s time to meet the parents.

Frances Conroy and M.C. Gainey have been tapped to guest-star on Married’s upcoming season 2 premiere, EW has learned exclusively.

Conroy (American Horror Story) appears as Janice, Lina’s mother, with Gainey (Justified) as Ed, Lina’s stepfather (see first look photos above and below), on the FX comedy, which centers on Lina (Judy Greer) and Russ Bowman (Nat Faxon), a married couple with three children.

“[Lina] really wants to bring her mother home because she feels like she’s not getting the care and attention she deserves,” Faxon says, adding that when the pair go to visit the parents, things take an unexpected turn.

Adds Greer: “I find lube in my mom’s bathroom and I freak out because I feel like my mom is suffering from a little bit of dementia and I’m like ‘How could he be having sex with her if she doesn’t even know who she is sometimes?’ and I freak out about that.”

Conroy and Gainey join the previously announced new face in season 2, series regular Sarah Burns, who will play Abby, a single mother who becomes an ally of Lina’s at school. Burns’ addition follows Jenny Slate appearing in fewer episodes after signing on for a FX road-trip comedy pilot.

Married returns on July 16 at 10:30 pm ET/PT on FX. Check back for more news about the show.
