Fans worried about the behind-the-scenes changes at Community for Season 4 are wondering what we can expect when the show returns in October. This casting spoiler from TV Line shows there’s potential for good times ahead.

The new showrunners are looking for a known actor or actress to play an older British professor who used to teach at Oxford. The tough history teacher will at first appear to be out of place in Greendale’s less-than-professional atmosphere, but a few episodes into Season 4, we’ll see that the prof is just as big a mess as anyone else on campus.

UPDATE: Matt Lucas has been cast as the history professor. Viewers might recognize him as one of Kristen Wiig’s roommates in Bridesmaids, or from the British sketch comedy Little Britain.
