OWN has added more star power to the third season of its highly anticipated drama, Greenleaf. The one-hour series returns for a two-night premiere on August 28 & 29 at 10 p.m. EST.

As previously reported, music icon Ms. Patti LaBelle will have a recurring role as Maxine Patterson, a famous Christian motivational speaker and the CEO of a global Christian self-help empire and an old college friend of Lady Mae’s (Lynn Whitfield). Patterson will also serve as her sounding board and greatest ally as Lady Mae attempts to consolidate her power at Calvary.

Other guest stars include Dr. Iyanla Vanzant of OWN’s popular “Iyanla: Fix My Life.” She’ll be portraying herself and helping Charity (Deborah Joy Winans) finally find her place in the Greenleaf family.

TV and film icon Beau Bridges will play Bob Whitmore, the folksy and charming founder of Harmony of Hope Ministries-a massive denomination with churches all over the world-who will use any unsavory tool at his disposal to win.
