In The Kominsky Method Season 2, Academy Award winners Michael Douglas (Kominsky) and Alan Arkin (Newlander) continue their journey as two friends tackling life’s inevitable curveballs as they navigate their later years in Los Angeles, a city that, above all else, values youth. This season, Sandy meets and bonds with his daughter’s new boyfriend (guest star Paul Reiser) who is uncomfortably close to Sandy’s age. Meanwhile, Norman reconnects with an old flame from his youth (guest star Jane Seymour) and after fifty years, they decide to start again. Nancy Travis and Sarah Baker co-star.
Sarah Baker and Nancy Travis are returning as series regulars, while Jacqueline Bisset (Bullitt) has also joined the cast for the second season.

Bisset will play Gabrielle, Mindy’s (Sarah Baker) mom and Sandy’s (Douglas) French ex-wife who delights in still being able to push the buttons of her ex-husband. Reiser will play Martin, a sixty-something high school teacher who gets romantically involved with Sandy’s (Douglas) daughter, Mindy (Baker).
