While there will be plenty of new faces in  Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. season 3, at least another familiar one is set to pop up in the show’s third year.

Blair Underwood’s Andrew Garner will be back in the new season, Marvel announced today. Underwood will be back for multiple episodes as Melinda May’s ex-husband, after last appearing in the two-part season 2 finale.

Viewers first met Andrew and learned of his relationship with May in “One of Us,” and Underwood popped up a few more times in the season. Unfortunately, just what Andrew and May are up to when season 3 returns remains a mystery, as does how many episodes Andrew will be around for.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is set to return to ABC on Sept. 29 at 9 p.m. ET.
