Franklin & Bash - The Curse of Hor-Aha

Kicking off the show’s Fourth Season, Franklin & Bash returns with some notable absences. With Rachel (Heather Locklear) moving on to greener pastures and Infeld (Malcolm McDowell) facing serious charges, control of the firm has fallen on the shoulders of Franklin (Breckin Meyer) and Bash (Mark-Paul Gosselaar). It seems the inmates are in fact now running the asylum. Along with Locklear’s exit, the premiere is also missing series regulars Dana Davis and Kumail Nanjiani as the Peter and Jared’s go-to investigator Carmen and hypochondriac helper Pindar who have both, apparently, left the show with big holes to fill.
