FX's What We Do in the Shadows is welcoming an intergalactic hero for a guest role as Star Wars vet Mark Hamill will appear in Season 2 of the popular comedy.

Series creator Jemaine Clemente first shared the news with Television Critics Association (TCA) members during a press panel. Clemente, who co-created the original 2014 film upon which the series is based with Taika Waititi, didn't reveal too much about Hamill's role, but he will appear in an episode from the forthcoming season which premieres April 15.

After word spread of the guest spot, Hamill himself took to Twitter to sound off, reminding fans of his previous hints about a project he "really, really, REALLY loved but was under an NDA" at the time.

The series, which launched last year follows the daily lives of vampire roommates living in Staten Island. As they navigate the modern world, viewers are introduced to hilarious scenarios and the vampires' quirky habits and traditions.

Clemente also revealed that Season 1 recurring star Beanie Feldstein won't return for Season 2 due to scheduling conflicts. But rest assured, Season 2 will include other characters, and will supposedly feature other supernatural beings such as ghosts and witches.
