Second Season Premieres On June 26 At 10PM ET/PT On TV Land

Los Angeles, CA - June 26, 2012 - TV Land announced today that Robin Givens ("House of Payne"), John Ross Bowie ("The Big Bang Theory"), Melissa Peterman ("Reba") and Daneel Ackles ("One Tree Hill") will guest star on the upcoming second season of the network's hit sitcom, "Retired at 35," premiering June 26 at 10pm ET/PT. Robin Givens will play a marriage counselor to Alan (George Segal) and Elaine Robbins (Jessica Walter), Bowie and Ackles will play the respective love interests for Amy (Marissa Jaret Winokur) and David (Johnathan McClain), and Melissa Peterman will play a pleasantly kooky wedding planner. George Wyner will also return this season as Richard, Alan's best friend and often go-to man for advice on the ladies.

"Retired at 35" tells the story of Alan Robbins and his wife Elaine (Jessica Walter) who are expected to cruise into retirement and live out their days happily ever after. However, they get an unexpected surprise when their uptight and overworked son David (Johnathan McClain), sick of the NYC rat race, decides to move in with them in their active-adult community. David finds himself dealing with his overzealous parents as well as his sister Amy (Marissa Jaret Winokur), who, while successful in business, has made less than impressive choices in her love life. Season two is a hilarious and bumpy ride as the Robbins family learns the consequences of being "Retired at 35."

Below are the episode descriptions for the second season of "Retired at 35":
