‘Abbott Elementary’: Taraji P. Henson Joins Cast for Special Guest-Star Role

1 Min Read

Abbott Elementary‘s cast just keeps getting more and more stacked. Following the guest appearance of Ayo Edebiri as Janine’s sister, a new guest star has been revealed. According to Variety, the illustrious Taraji P. Henson will be joining on in an important guest-star capacity as Janine’s mother!

The past few weeks of the show have uncovered new lore concerning Janine’s rocky relationship with her mother (and her sister as a byproduct). With Henson’s deep filmography (Hidden Figures, Empire, Think Like A Man, and more), we are positive she’ll be able to bring the right blend of comedy and nuance to this tricky role that will put her in contentious waters.

The Emmy and Golden Globe award-winning show Abbott Elementary airs on Wednesday nights at 9 p.m ET/ 8 p.m. CT. Check out all of our other coverage on the show here (including episodic recaps) and stay tuned for more updates.
