Showtime has announced the spring premiere dates for three of its series. Nurse Jackie, which stars Broadway veteran Edie Falco, will begin its third season on March 28 at 10pm. Immediately following, The United States of Tara, which features Tony Award nominee Toni Collette and new cast member Eddie Izzard, will also air the first episode of its third season.
Entertainment Weekly has the exclusive first picture from “United States of Tara”‘s third season:
In Showtime’s acclaimed dramedy United States of Tara, Collette stars as Tara Gregson, a woman with dissociative identity disorder whose multiple personalities regularly take over her life. It all gets even more complicated in the third season (premiering next spring), when Tara’s personalities – or alters – start communicating with one another. (In this scene, the June Cleaver-channeling Alice chats up hippie-happy Shoshana.) So what does Tara make of this development? ”She thinks it’s weird!” says Collette, adding that her character – who was already on the verge of a breakdown – struggles to keep her other identities from ganging up on her. ”There’s a kind of a deal that she makes with the alters this season,” the Emmy winner teases. But as things progress, ”it’s a deal that might be jeopardized.”
