The season 5 finale of Parks and Recreation left us with some big news: Ron (Nick Offerman) is going to be a dad. And here’s some more news on that front: Mom will be in the season 6 premiere.

Lucy Lawless, who appeared multiple times on the NBC comedy last season, will return as Diane, Ron’s girlfriend who is pregnant with his child. Producers are hoping to bring back the former Xena: Warrior Princess star for additional episodes as Ron prepares for fatherhood.

The hour-long season premiere — which airs Sept. 26 and sends some of the Parks characters to London — also includes guest roles for Heidi Klum and Henry Winkler.
