NBC’s COMMUNITY is getting a new biology teacher this third season, and that teacher is someone you might know as Omar.

That’s right, The Wire‘s Michael K. Williams has been cast in a recurring role of at least three episode in the new season of the series. Here’s the fun part Williams’ character has recently been released from prison… that’s going to be an interesting biology class.

But Williams is not the only new face joining the show this season. John Goodman (currently on Damages) has also signed up as a recurring character for at least six episodes, according to TV Line. His character? Vice Dean Laybourne, the head of Greendale’s air conditioning repair school, who is also a new foe not only for the study group but Dean Pelton as well.

It sounds like it’s going to be another exciting year at Greendale.

Season 3 of Community premieres on Thursday, September 22 at 8pm on NBC.
