Billy Zane to Play Key Role on Samantha Who?

at .

Have patience, Samantha Who? fans.

This Christina Applegate sitcom really is returning next month with new episodes.

Moreover, Titanic star Billy Zane will be featured prominently on them.

"[He] comes and causes a lot of confusion for everybody," Applegate says of Zane's character. "That whole arc was five episodes, and it's quite good. Because of him, it changes the course of who she is. As we come into the third season, which we hope we get, everything will be different."

Third season? Fans will settle for a single new episode at this point.

Samantha Who? Quotes

Sam: Couple of good things about being in a coma: no fattening food, lots of rest, they sponge you down every day. It's like a spa. Bad things: my nose itches, I have something called the "Pina Colada Song" stuck in my head, and, oh yeah, sometimes I can hear what people in my room are saying.

Sam: Good things about amnesia: all new clothes, no re-runs. Bad: every minute is like that dream where you haven't been to class all year, and the test is now.
