Shaquille O’Neal will be stopping by Fresh Off the Boat next season, EW has learned.

The former long-time professional basketball player is set to guest-star in the third episode of the second season titled “Shaquille O’Neal Motors.” He will be shooting his scenes in early September. 

Though no additional details are available at this time, the news will no doubt excite Eddie Huang (Hudson Yang), who is an admirer of the famed athlete as fans learned in the first season.  

Fresh Off the Boat returns Tuesday, Sept. 22 at 8:30 p.m. ET on ABC.
