Raising Hope - Season 4 - 7 Teases from TV Guide

Virginia's daddy issue: As first revealed by TVGuide.com, the season premiere will introduce a very important character from Virginia's past — her father (Tambor), whom she had believed to be dead. "We were just looking at little ideas for stories, and we just had this idea of this guy who Virginia sees every now and then watching her. But no one else ever sees it so he's this enigma. She calls him déjà vu man," Mariano says. "We had never told the story of who her dad was. We had known it was something that was always out there for us. We said, 'Alright let's see if it's her dad, what happens?'" Although there are no official plans for Tambor to return this season, Mariano is optimistic. "We're working on it," he says. "He wants to come back, and I would love to have him back."

That other daddy issue: In addition to meeting her character's long-gone father, Martha Plimpton will also get to share screen time with her real-life dad, Keith Carradine, who will guest-star this season. Mariano says the idea of having Carradine on the show had been discussed in the past, but "we never had the right thing." But the writing staff found just the part for Carradine when the Chances travel to a dude ranch and meet an "over-the-top" cowboy. "It's a comical bit of a dude ranch, and we thought, well this would be a perfect one for him. He was amazing. It was everything we could have hoped for," Mariano says. "He plays a guitar and sings a song. He rides a bunch of horses and does all this great cowboy stuff."

Is there another baby on the way?: Mariano confirms that "there will be talk of another baby" between Jimmy (Lucas Neff) and Sabrina (Shannon Woodward) this upcoming season. "They start deciding if they want to have another baby, and we play that out in an episode to a conclusion," he says. However, the (semi) newlyweds will also be dealing with another big change as they settle into their new place and living apart from Burt (Garret Dillahunt) and Virginia. "Now they're married and living in their own house, the show does shift a little bit. Originally, it was three idiots raising a baby: Burt, Virginia and Jimmy and now really the baby is being raised by Jimmy and Sabrina now. We've tried to do some stories where it's more about them and what they go through with parenting and the other two are grandparents, albeit more involved grandparents," Mariano says. "We've separated them a little."

About The SpoilerTV Daily Newsreel

Every day 100's of items are submitted to us and we don't always have the time to make separate posts for the news and/or there is so much that it would quickly push all other items off the homepage.

So a result we've come up with the idea of the Newsreel, which will feature smaller shows and news items as they happen.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

New Items will be listed at the top of the article.

This will allow us to provide more news on more shows in a much more timely fashion
About Movie News Roundup

Rather that creating lots of new posts as new info is released and fragmenting the commentary, we thought it would be a good idea for the upcoming major movies to create a single post for each major movies that will collate all the info as it's posted.

New items will be added to the top of the list as well as the post being re-posted back to the top of the homepage when a new item is added. We will additionally send out a fresh tweet alerting you of the new information.

This will allow you to bookmark this page so that you can return to it whenever you like. It will also help consolidate all the discussion on this movie in a central place and make it less likely that you'll miss some key information.
