Franklin & Bash is officially back in session June 5, and it sounds like TNT’s courtroom dramedy is going to be even more ridiculous than ever — which, of course, I mean in the best way possible. Garcelle Beauvais, who stars as “take-no-prisoners” lawyer Hanna Linden, tells HollywoodLife.com that while we’ll see a “funner side” to her character this season, we probably shouldn’t expect her to embrace Franklin (Breckin Meyer) and Bash’s (Mark-Paul Gosselaar) shenanigans just yet.
“She’s still bossy,” Garcelle promises. “She also doesn’t hook up with Franklin, and Breckin is upset about that. He was like, ‘Why aren’t we making out?’ But yeah, [season two is] lot more fun with a lot of great guest stars. You get a more in-depth look at Hanna.”
And one of the biggest ways we’ll get to know more about Hanna will be through the eyes of her new love interest, played by Boris Kodjoe. Garcelle says she was “thrilled” when she found out Boris was coming on board for season two.
But most importantly, Garcelle says Hanna will remain true to who she is in season two, which is one of her favorite qualities about her character.
“She’s definitely not the warmest character, but what I love about her is that she doesn’t apologize for that,” Garcelle says. “She tells it like it is, and you take it or not.”
The second season of Franklin & Bash premieres at 10 p.m. TONIGHT on TNT!— Andy Swift
