It’s been a complicated summer for fans of the NBC cult comedy Community. After a decidedly lackluster fourth season, the show’s creator and showrunner Dan Harmon was brought back to helm the show. Great! Then news trickled out that co-star Donald Glover will appear in just five of the upcoming season’s 13 episodes as he focuses more on his musical career. Bad!

Fortunately, Entertainment Weekly has a morsel of a reason for fans to be optimistic again: Jonathan Banks, best known for his role as lovable grandpa/professional hitman Mike Erhmantraut on Breaking Bad, will have a recurring role as a community college professor in the upcoming season. He’ll appear in 11 of the season’s 13 episodes.
