Jan Brady will be in the upcoming "The Path" season 2.
Actress Eve Plumb, who played the middle daughter in the beloved '70s sitcom "The Brady Bunch," will guest star in the next season of Hulu's new drama. According to Entertainment Weekly, Plumb will play the role of Wendy, who is hired by one of the Meyerist member's parents to "deprogram" and help their son/daughter leave the religious group.
Plumb will join series stars Michelle Monaghan (as Sarah Lane), Aaron Paul (as Eddie Lane), and Hugh Dancy (as Cal Roberts) in the sophomore season of Hulu's first major scripted drama series. "The Path," which debuted in March this year, follows the members and leaders of the fictional Meyerist Movement, a cult-like group.
EW notes that not much else has been revealed about Plumb's role in "The Path" season 2. It is unclear if the actress will appear in a single episode of the series or will have a recurring arc.
Since the '60s, Plumb has appeared in a long list of films and television shows. She most recently appeared in "Law & Order: SVU," "Army Wives," and "Days of Our Lives." This year, she took on the role of Mrs. Murdock in the "Grease: Live" TV event.
In May, Hulu announced that it had renewed "The Path" for a second season. That same month, the series ended its freshman run with multiple major cliffhangers. In an interview with TVLine, "The Path" creator Jessica Goldberg teased some details about season 2, saying: "There will be a couple of new characters. There may be a bit of romance for Eddie."
When asked if she can confirm that Cal truly knows nothing about the fact that Dr. Steve Meyer (Keir Dullea), The Movement's founder, is alive, Goldberg answered: "Cal knows nothing about it. And whether Steve is alive and well [is up for debate], but he's definitely standing."
"The Path" season 2 is scheduled for release sometime in 2017. The first season of the drama is now streaming on Hulu.
