Modern Family’s Mitch and Cam are getting a houseguest as the show returns for Season 6. Kristen Johnston has signed up to guest-star on the hit sitcom.

The actress has landed a one-off episode appearance on the show, playing a law colleague of Mitchell (Jesse Tyler Ferguson) who is going through a rough time. When Mitchell invites her to spend the night at his house, he discovers that she’s more of an emotional disaster than he thought.

TVLine, which first reported the news, said of Mitchell’s character: “he has no idea the extent to which she is unraveling emotionally.”

Kristen Johnston famously starred on 3rd Rock from the Sun (which landed her two Outstanding Supporting Actress Emmy awards). She was last seen on the sitcom “The Exes.”

The episode will air early in season 6, which kicks off Sept. 24.
