Sara Gilbert is joining season three of Netflix’s “Atypical” in a recurring role.
Deadline reports that Gilbert will portray Professor Judd, “a university Ethics professor who is generally irritable and chronically underwhelmed, yet capable of compassion.”
“Atypical” follows Sam (Keir Gilchrist), an 18-year-old on the autism spectrum, and his family. Jennifer Jason Leigh, Michael Rapaport, Brigette Lundy-Paine, Amy Okuda and Nik Dodani also star.
No release date has been announced for season three.
Gilbert’s casting comes after she announced her departure from CBS’ “The Talk” to pursue more acting roles and spend more time with her family.
