"Catastrophe" season 3, featuring some of the last scenes filmed by the late Carrie Fisher, has set a premiere date.
The romantic/parenting comedy starring Sharon Horgan and Rob Delaney returns April 28 on Amazon. The new season brings back Fisher as Rob's super critical and dismissive mother, Mia. Fisher has a bigger role this season, as Horgan revealed at a London screening of the premiere.
"We wrote this bigger, chunkier part for her in episode six and got to spend time with her," Horgan said. "She was part of the gang and we really feel very privileged and honored. She was funny all the time and incredibly witty company and loved saying a**hole-y things to everyone but also was just a kind, lovely, supportive person."Fisher was returning to Los Angeles from filming that episode in London when she suffered what would turn out to be a fatal heart attack. She died on Dec. 27, followed two days later by her mother, Debbie Reynolds.
Horgan also said that she and Delaney have not yet decided how to write out Fisher in the already-greenlit season 4. "We haven't thought about that yet," she said. "Hopefully some time will pass and we'll think of a fitting end to that story."
