Casting continues on the sixth season of perpetually uncanceled college sitcom Community. Last week, Keith David and Paget Brewster joined the cast. Now, EW can exclusively reveal that Community is set to finally introduce Britta’s parents: Martin Mull and Lesley Ann Warren will play George and Deb Perry in the second episode of the season.

Mull was most recently seen on the small screen as one of the titular Dads, while Warren’s most visible role in recent years was on In Plain Sight. More importantly, both Mull and Warren were in Clue. (Colonel Mustard and Miss Scarlet, respectively.) This could imply that s06e02 will be some sort of elaborate nesting-doll meta-murder mystery, where Britta and her parents play a board game loosely based on Clue—let’s call it Inkling—and while they try to solve the murder in the board game, they have to also solve a murder in real life, but it turns out that the murder was just a metaphor for emotional neglect.

That’s probably not what the episode is about, but this being Community, there’s already a subreddit building Inkling on a 3D printer. Community‘s sixth season will debut on Yahoo Screen in winter 2015.
