Mom’s the word this season on ABC’s “Revenge.”

First we had the resurrection of Emily Thorne’s unstable mother, played by Jennifer Jason Leigh, and now Victoria Grayson’s mama is headed to the Hamptons.

“Maude” star Adrienne Barbeau has been tapped to play Madeleine Stowe’s mom on the juicy drama, according to TVLine.

Her character is described as “somebody who knows how to use people” … “She taught Victoria what it takes to survive with very little, with your wit and your looks, really,” series executive producer Mike Kelley tells TVLine.

Barbeau most recently has been seen on TV on ABC’s “General Hospital” and costarring HBO’s “Carnivale,” as well as guest appearances on “Dexter,” “Grey’s Anatomy,” and “CSI: New York.”

“We will learn how the monster that is Victoria Grayson was put together, and we’ll learn that there’s a lot of damage that went into this little girl that became Victoria Grayson — and that it was at the hands of her mother,” Kelley continued, adding, “So, Emily and Victoria will share a lot more than they would have ever expected in terms of family.”
