Melissa and JoeyMelissa Joan Hart and Joey Lawrence already told us about the special guest stars making cameos on 'Melissa & Joey' when the show returns from its eight-month hiatus on Wednesday. (Vivica A. Fox and a Lawrence brothers reunion? Yes, please!)

But if you can't wait until June 29 for your 'Melissa and Joey' fix, fear not. Both Hart and Lawrence had plenty to share about what's in store for their characters, politician Mel Burke and live-in nanny Joe Longo.

"It's a lot of the ups and downs. I think that the journey of the show is that any moment one of these people could either find a significant other and the relationship is over," said Lawrence. "Joe could get that opportunity that he's been waiting for to get his feet back on the ground and go make the millions of dollars he's used to making, and he's gone. I think that's where the show lives. There are several close calls when it comes to that."

What kind of close calls? Well for one, Joe's ex-wife comes back into the picture. "It's always a threat because I still love her even though she screwed me over," Lawrence said.

Meanwhile, Hart's character gets along with the former Mrs. Longo. "I think she's crazy, and it's so funny because my character's crazy," Hart said. "They are very polite to each other, but she's just a fruit loop. She's hilarious."

Additionally, both Joe and Mel get a few love interests that make each other question their relationship. (One of those significant others is 'Greek' alum Scott Michael Foster, who plays Mel's much-younger boyfriend.) But Hart assures us there's no chance of her and Joe hooking up anytime this season. "Once you get characters together it's like 'Moonlighting,' Hart said. "I think that unless you can do it in a really smart and amazing way, you have to be really careful how you do it."

Lawrence also spilled that his character gets a job opportunity toward the end of the season that could lead to him not being there anymore. "I think that's where the show lives," he said. "That bubble effect that at any moment things could change, and these two people won't realize that they're pretty good for each other."
