Dr. Ken will feature another reunion between Ken Jeong and a fellow Community alum, but it’s definitely not one that you were expecting to see.
Community creator Dan Harmon will guest-star on the ABC family/medical comedy as… Dan Harmon, the creator of a new community college-set TV series.
In Dr. Ken‘s season finale, which airs Mar. 31, Harmon invites Ken (Jeong) to audition for a role on the show after seeing the doctor do some stand-up at an open mic night. (In last year’s season finale, after Ken performed at the Laugh Factory, a manager tried to sign him, but Ken opted to stick with his doctor duties at Welltopia.)
The episode with Harmon — the Rick and Morty co-creator who stars in History’s Great Minds with Dan Harmon — comes three weeks after Community vet Jonathan Banks will play Ken’s old professor on the Mar. 10 installment. Gillian Jacobs and Yvette Nicole Brown popped up last month in different episodes. In season 1, Community stars Joel McHale, Danny Pudi, and Jim Rash matched wits with Jeong.
Dr. Ken airs Fridays at 8:30 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
