Cross will play Hank Hickey, the "bitterly estranged son" of Jonathan Banks' recurring character, Professor Hickey. In the episode, which serves as a sequel to 2011's beloved Dungeons & Dragons episode, Cross' character joins the study group for the "second-most important game of Dungeons & Dragons ever."

Community returns with back-to-back new episodes on Thursday, Jan. 2 at 8/7c on NBC. Are you excited to see Cross join the study group?
