Community is showing more love for Arrested Development: In addition to featuring a cameo by series creator Mitch Hurwitz in an episode, the NBC comedy has now signed up David Cross for a guest spot. (Vulture first reported the news.)

The episode with Cross, which will likely air in late winter or early spring, will serve as a sequel to season 2’s “Advanced Dungeons & Dragons.” The Arrested star is playing the sour estranged son of Professor Hickey (Jonathan Banks) who joins the study group for “the second most important game of Dungeons & Dragons ever.”

Community has been loading up on guest stars for its fifth season, which kicks off Jan. 2. Other famous folks slated to pop up in the halls of Greendale include Nathan Fillion, Walton Goggins, Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan, Robert Patrick, Tim Heidecker, Eric Wareheim, Ben Folds, Paget Brewster, Kumail Nanjiani, Paul Williams and Katie Leclerc, along with the returning Jon Oliver, Rob Corddry and Brie Larson.
