mary louise parker the blacklist season 2 nbc 'The Blacklist' Season 2 premiere casts Mary Louise Parker as ...“The Blacklist” revealed some exciting casting news Saturday (July 26) at Comic-Con 2014, available here first at Zap2it — Mary-Louise Parker is coming to Season 2.

The Golden Globe, Tony and Emmy-winning actress, formerly of “Weeds” and “The West Wing,” is guest-starring in the Season 2 premiere as Naomi Hyland, “a beautiful and strong woman who has been hiding a dark secret from her husband that puts them both in danger.” The episode will begin filming in New York City in early August.

There’s no word if Parker’s character is a number on Raymond Reddington’s (James Spader) titular blacklist, but we certainly hope there is a Parker-Spader scene.

“The Blacklist” returns Monday, Sept. 22 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on NBC.
