Douglas stars in the Golden Globe-winning Netflix series as Sandy Kominsky, an actor who has grown long in the tooth and has taken up teaching the craft. Per Variety, Turner is expected to guest-star in the show's upcoming second season as Sandy's ex-wife Ruth, with whom he shares daughter Mindy (Sarah Baker). Turner's character is described as a person "who delights in still being able to push the buttons of her ex-husband," which makes this casting perfect for anyone who has seen the two together in their films like The War of the Roses.
Douglas and Turner also previously starred together in Romancing the Stone and The Jewel of the Nile. All three of their shared screen adventures also featured Danny DeVito, who appeared in two episodes of The Kominsky Method's first season.
Turner reportedly replaces actress Jacqueline Bisset in the role of Sandy's ex, who was originally conceived as being named Gabrielle, a character who has French roots.
The Kominsky Method is available for streaming on Netflix.
