As first reported by Entertainment Weekly, Emmy Award winner Alfre Woodard will reprise her role as Ruby Jean Reynolds, the schizophrenic mother of Lafayette, on episodes five and six this summer.

The character was last seen during Season 3, where she served as a patient in a mental hospital and led to her son meeting Kevin Alejandro's Jesus, who worked as her nurse.
