Molly Kagan returns to the small screen to begin a new chapter in her life with the new season of The Starter Wife, premiering tonight at 10/9c on the USA Network.  When we last saw The Starter Wife, Molly caused a blowup with Joan after reporting her rehab stunt to Pappy.  Then she struggled to choose between Sam, who wanted her back, and Lou, who wanted to start a relationship.  At the same time, problems with the divorce settlement drove Molly to find the strength to claim what's rightfully hers and take charge of her own life.

Read on to find out what's in store for the two-hour season premiere of The Starter Wife.

Returning after six episodes, The Starter Wife opens the new season with the episode called “The Forty-Year-Old Virgin Queen.”  After being practically rejected and shunned by the community of the rich and famous, Molly decides to swear off men.  At the same time, she attempts to carve out a living for herself while her ex-husband's latest Hollywood blockbuster continues to die in test screenings.

Elsewhere, Jaden tries to keep herself grounded with a diary, where she pours out her sentiments, despite her please for a Blackberry since all the other elementary school kids have one.

Leading the series is Debra Messing (Will & Grace), who stars as Molly Kagan. Also featured on the show are David Alan Basche as Molly's ex-husband Kenny Kagan, Danielle Nicolet as Molly's new friend Liz Marsh, Brielle Barbusca as Molly and Kenny's daughter Jaden, and Hart Bochner as Molly's new love interest and writing class professor Zach.

Reprising their roles for this episode are Emmy Award-winner Judy Davis as Joan McAllister, Chris Diamantopoulos as Rodney, and Criminal Minds' Joe Mantegna as Lou Manahan, former studio head and former boyfriend of Molly.

Don't forget to catch a new episode of The Starter Wife every Friday on the USA Network.  Following the two-part season opener, the series will move to its new timeslot at 10pm.
