The Wonder Years: Patti LaBelle plays Bill’s mother in season 2

ABC’s wonderful years Reboot adds a certified diva to its ranks: Patti LaBelle joins the cast in Season 2 to play the mother of Dulé Hill’s character Bill, TVLine has learned.

LaBelle will guest-star in two episodes as Shirley Williams, who is also the director of the church choir. “‘Mother Williams’ is as sweet as she can be, but has a different side to it when choir members don’t quite hit the right note,” reads the official description.

Based on the Emmy-winning dramedy of the same name, The Wonderful Years debuted on ABC last fall starring Elisha “EJ” Williams as 12-year-old Dean growing up in Montgomery, Alabama during the tumultuous 1960s. Hill plays Dean’s father, Bill, with Saycon Sengbloh as Dean’s mother, Lillian. The reboot was renewed for a second season in May; It is scheduled to return mid-season, but no premiere date has been set.

LaBelle is best known for her recording career with hits like “Lady Marmalade” and “On My Own,” but she’s also played her part in acting on the small screen. In recent years she has appeared on American Horror Story, Rich and Green leafand she’s had guest roles on CBS’ the neighborhood last season as the mother of Cedric the Entertainer’s character Calvin. She also appeared as Flower in Season 2 of Fox The Masked Singer — and somehow only ended up in eighth place?! Can we get a recount here?
