Ugly Betty: Returning to Wednesday Nights, With Special Guest Stars

at . Comments

The bad news for Ugly Betty fans: the show is off the air until January 6.

The great news: that's a Wednesday.

As has been rumored for weeks, the show is abadoning its graveyard of a time slot on Friday nights and moving to the middle of the week when it returns. But that's not all:

Jesse Tyler Ferguson (Modern Family's Mitchell) will reprise his role as Betty's orthodontist on the January 6 installment. Among other storylines viewers can look forward to:

  • Betty surprises Matt with a gallery showing of his art work. Tony Award-winning actress Christine Ebersole (pictured below) guest stars as Frances, the gallery owner;
  • Matt Newton returns as Marc's one-night stand, Troy, who is clearly smitten with Marc;
  • Hilda struggles with whether or not to tell Bobby that he's the father of her unborn child;
  • Cal Hartley hires a major Hollywood player, Denise Ludwig, to replace Wilhemina.

As always, TV Fanatic will update our Ugly Betty music and quotes section after each new episode.

For now, get an early look at what's ahead via the following photos from "The Passion of the Betty." Click on each to enlarge...

Ugly Betty Quotes

Snow is a magical blanket, it hides what's ugly and makes everything beautiful

Wilhelmina

I've had to say good-bye more times than I may have like, but everyone can say that. And no matter how many times we have to do it - even if it's for the greater good, it still stings. And although we will never forget what we've given up, we owe it to ourselves to keep moving forward. What we can't do is live our lives afraid of the next good-bye because chances are they are not going to stop. The trick is to recognize when a good-bye can be a good thing - when it's a chance to start again.
