Melora Hardin, who many may recognize as Michael’s quirky on-again off-again girlfriend Jan from The Office, is set to join the cast of Amazon’s Transparent, a representative confirmed to EW.

Written and directed by Jill Soloway, Transparent follows three adult children (Gaby Hoffmann, Jay Duplass, and Amy Landecker) who find their dynamics changing after their dad (Jeffrey Tambor) reveals a shocking secret.

Hardin will play one of the children’s lesbian friends, a role that was initially played by Gillian Vigman in the pilot.
