Watch Jennifer Coolidge Tell Amy Schumer Her Future in ‘Life & Beth’ Season 2

Amy Schumer booked a recognizable psychic for the second season of her Hulu series Life & Beth.

As the trailer revealed, Jennifer Coolidge makes a cameo in Schumer’s follow-up season. And now a new clip, dropped on Thursday, shows nearly two minutes of the anticipated scene, which comes in the third episode of the 10-episode season, which releases in full on Thursday.

Playing a New Orleans psychic named Madame de Merde, the Emmy-winning White Lotus actress has been booked for a reading by Beth (Schumer), who brings another season two guest character — played by Amy Sedaris — along for the appointment. As the teaser shows, however, Beth doesn’t exactly get a good vibe during their introduction.

Schumer shared a fun fact with The Hollywood Reporter that Coolidge and Sedaris’ roles were originally flipped, with Coolidge initially set to play the New Orleans wedding planner ultimately played by Sedaris, and Sedaris was going to play the psychic. Last minute, however, they all decided it would be funnier if they swapped their roles.

Schumer recently told PureWow that Coolidge had a residence in New Orleans, where the episode is set, and the timing worked out. “[It was] just meant to be, and I think I’ve never laughed harder than working with her. I just loved her, she made me laugh so hard,” said Schumer.

When the dramedy inspired by her own life returns, two years after season one released, Beth’s relationship with John, played by Michael Cera, “grows more serious” and “Beth begins to examine the possibilities of marriage and having a family as she and John seek answers for their communication problems,” reads the synopsis. “Is Beth’s traumatic history with men, and people she trusted from her youth destined to repeat itself? And what is triggering her fears? Beth does her best to keep her relationships alive while struggling to support friends and family who are all facing their own problems while entering their fourth decade.”

Susannah Flood and Violet Young return, as well as recurring guest stars Kevin Kane, Yamaneika Saunders, Laura Benanti, Michael Rapaport, LaVar Walker, Sas Goldberg, Arielle Siegel, Rosebud Baker and more.

Life & Beth is written, directed and executive produced by star Schumer, along with Kane, Daniel Powell and Ryan McFaul. The series is produced by Fifth Season.
