While there has been no movement on a Community reunion thus far, Ken Jeong has done a good job of keeping the Greendale flame burning, frequently connecting with his old castmates on Dr. Ken. He has recruited Joel McHale and Danny Pudi for one episode and brought on Jim Rash, Gillian Jacobs, and Yvette Nicole Brown for their own guest spots as well.

Add one more name to that list: Jonathan Banks, the Better Call Saul star who played Professor Buzz Hickey throughout season 5 of Community, will appear in an upcoming episode of the ABC family/medical comedy. He’ll play Dr. Erwin, the hard-ass professor who oversaw Ken (Jeong) when he was a resident — and gave him less-than-stellar evaluations. Now Dr. Erwin has resurfaced seeking medical treatment, affording Ken the opportunity to redeem himself to Dr. Erwin.

The episode featuring Banks is slated to air Mar. 10. Dr. Ken airs Fridays at 8:30 p.m. on ABC.

Better Call Saul returns to AMC for season 3 on Apr. 10.
