‘Speechless’ Episode Guide (Jan. 3): Jimmy and Maya Leave The Kids at Home on New Year’s Eve

“N-E–NEW Y–YEAR’S E– EVE” Season 2 Winter Premiere (01/03/18) – Jimmy convinces Maya to go on a much-needed night out together where they drink through Maya’s urge to rush home to the kids. Back at the house, Ray and Kenneth avoid being alone with their dates, while JJ, sidelined by a broken wheelchair, ends up getting more excitement than he expected.

Meanwhile, Dylan spends her night trying to win the affection of the new family dog, on “Speechless,” WEDNESDAY, JAN. 3 (8:30-9:00 p.m. EST), on The ABC Television Network, streaming and on demand.

Guest starring in this episode are Sedona James as Taylor, Liz Cackowski as Joyce, Lance Lim as Justin, Curran Walters as Xander and Ashley Liao as Maddie.

“N-E–NEW Y–YEAR’S E– EVE” was written by Scott Silveri and Danny Chun and directed by Ken Whittingham.

Maya DiMeo is the mom who will do anything for her husband, Jimmy, and kids Ray, Dylan, and JJ, her eldest son with cerebral palsy. In Season 2 of this amusing and often unexpected comedy, the family along with JJ’s aide, Kenneth, are reunited after JJ’s first-time summer camp adventure.

As we move into the new school year, the DiMeos, who have always been on the search to find the right school support for JJ, are faced with a new and unfamiliar reality. The DiMeo kids are going to continue at the same school! This is unchartered territory for the DiMeos but, as always, they will find a fun balance in everything they do while adjusting to the concept of becoming actual members of a community.

“Speechless” stars Minnie Driver as Maya DiMeo, John Ross Bowie (“The Big Bang Theory”) as Jimmy DiMeo, Mason Cook as Ray DiMeo, Micah Fowler as JJ DiMeo, Kyla Kenedy as Dylan DiMeo and Cedric Yarbrough as Kenneth.
