‘Call Me Kat’: Parker Young Cast in Season 3… as Kat’s Baby Daddy?


Is Call Me Kat‘s titular café proprietor ready to have a litter of her own?

RustWire can exclusively reveal that Parker Young (United States of Al, Imposters) will guest-star in an upcoming episode of the Mayim Bialik comedy as Brian Anderson, a man that Kat becomes infatuated with on her mission to have a child.

Yes, you read that right. Kat’s contemplating motherhood. “After a few months of traveling the world,” Season 3 (premiering Thursday, Sept. 29 at its new time, 9:30/8:30c) sees Kat return to Louisville “feeling refreshed and ready to ascertain what she wants from life… and whether her future includes a journey to motherhood.”

Young will appear in Episode 4, airing Oct. 20. The gig reunites him with United States of Al co-creator Maria Ferrari, who took over as co-showrunner on the Fox multi-cam (along with fellow Chuck Lorre vet Jim Patterson) ahead of Season 3.

In Kat‘s Season 2 finale, Kat headed to Paris for some much-needed downtime. The episode ended with Kat on a hotel balcony overlooking the Eiffel Tower. Her love interest Max had similarly left Louisville for Nashville, in pursuit of a music career. In Season 3, Max returns from Music City “with cowboy boots and a big ego to go along with them,” according to the official logline.

As previously reported, Bialik will continue to juggle her duties as star of Call Me Kat and sometimes-host of Jeopardy! Meanwhile, fellow Jeopardy! emcee Ken Jennings will appear as himself in Kat‘s Sept. 29 opener.
