Prodigal Son Season 2: What we know about Catherine Zeta-Jones so far

Catherine Zeta-Jones is joining the cast of Prodigal Son Season 2 as a series regular. Here’s everything we know about her character so far.

There’s a new doctor in town. Catherine Zeta-Jones is joining the cast of Prodigal Son Season 2 as Dr. Vivian Capshaw.

Don’t expect to love her. This is a woman who appears to have some sort of secret. And she is going to revel in the mistreatment of Martin Whitly. Sure, Martin is a serial killer, but he’s also played by Michael Sheen and there’s everything to love about Michael Sheen!

Dr. Capshaw is the resident MD at Claremont, and she comes face-to-face with The Surgeon when he’s given infirmary duty. It sounds like Martin is stuck in Gen Pop for the foreseeable, although there are some images that show him back in the psychiatric wing. They could be flashbacks, of course.

While she works with him, she makes his life miserable. Dr. Capshaw is more than happy to see Martin clean up bedpans, which certainly suggests there is something in their shared history. What is it and when will it come up?

However, things change when she realizes how good he is with patients. Sure, he’s a serial killer, but he is also a surgeon—and a good one at that. When Dr. Capshaw realizes that, she starts to get dangerous. But who will be the one in danger?

When will Catherine Zeta-Jones appear on Prodigal Son Season 2?

How long will we need to wait for the high-profile star to join the series? According to Deadline, she’s set to arrive in the second half of the season.

That’s not a lot to go on. We have no idea how long this season will be. As it’s beginning in January, it would make sense for it to be around the 16-episode mark. This is probably about the length of most fall TV shows this year due to delayed filming and premiere dates.

So, we could see Zeta-Jones around Prodigal Son Season 2, Episode 8. Whenever it is, we’re ready for it. What about you?
