According to TV Line, Catherine will play Dr. Vivian Capshaw, Claremont Psychiatrics’ resident MD and leading man Michael Sheen‘s primary antagonist. When Michael‘s character Dr. Martin Whitley is tasked with infirmary duty, Dr. Capshaw delights in assigning him menial cleaning duties. But as Martin becomes more adept at treating patients, Dr. Capshaw realizes he may be more valuable than she assumed.
Fox Entertainment President Michael Thorn said in a statement to TV Line, “An extraordinary talent, Catherine Zeta-Jones is the perfect foil for the brilliant Michael Sheen. I can’t wait to see these two greats go head-to-head in a season that is bound to raise the bar set by an outstanding Season 1.”
Prodigal Son was picked up by Fox in 2019 after only two episodes aired.

The cast also includes Bellamy Young, Halston Sage, Lou Diamond Phillips, Aurora Perrineau, and Frank Harts.
