Paging Madam Secretary, the Oval Office is calling.
CBS’s Madam Secretary dropped the mic on Twitter yesterday with an announcement of some major guest stars for season 5. None other than former Secretaries of State Hillary Clinton, Colin Powell, and Madeleine Albright will be stepping into the White House this fall. They will be joining Tea Leoni, who plays Secretary of State Elizabeth McCord on the show.

Albright is a pro by now, previously appearing on the CBS drama in 2015. Clinton also has some acting credits under her belt, with a stint opposite Kate McKinnon on SNL in 2015, and a credit playing herself in a 2016 episode of Broad City.
“Having three powerhouses of diplomacy agree to come on our show is awe-inspiring and humbling,” executive producer Lori McCreary said in a statement. “And that we were able to find a time in their busy schedules when they were all available is a miracle.”
Season 5 premieres Sunday, Oct. 7.
