Love might just be in the air for Retta's Girlfriends' Guide to Divorce character, Barbara. According to TV Line, Theo Huxtable himself, Malcolm-Jamal Warner, has been tapped to play a potential love interest for Barbara during Season 3 of the series. Malcolm-Jamal will play Darrell, an "upscale contractor, widower, and single father" who has his eye on Barbara.
It was recently confirmed that Girlfriends' Guide to Divorce will end after Season 5, as a part of a programming strategy set around the final 19 episodes of the series. The upcoming Season 3 will have seven episodes, and Seasons 4 and 5 will have six episodes each. "It's a creative way to get to the end of the series, but also to maximize everybody's time up in Vancouver [where Girlfriends' Guide is shot] because it's such a bear to stop production, have everybody come back, send everybody back again. It was really smart of them," creator Marti Noxon said. As for how things will end for Abby and friends, Marti has given that plenty of thought. "From the beginning, I've had an idea of how I've wanted the series to end," she told The Hollywood Reporter last month. "So at least I had that picture in my head."
