“The truth is when I heard the news, I said a loud ‘Yes!’ And started dancing around my house,” Gimpel told The Crossfire.
Gimpel, 54, appeared in eight episodes of the first season and will now be a cast member for Season 2. She plays the character of Trish, a music store owner who falls for Reverend Arthur Finer, who is played by Joe Morton.
The news was first reported by Deadline Hollywood.
