Premiering in mid-September on CW Seed, Play It Again, Dick will star Ryan Hansen (as himself) as he attempts to get a show made about his Mars character, Dick Casablancas. Filming on the eight-episode series has wrapped, and thanks to BuzzFeed, we now know which of our favorite Marshmallows we’ll be seeing again very soon.

Slated to appear, both as themselves and their Mars characters, are: Kristen Bell (Veronica), Jason Dohring (Logan), Enrico Colantoni (Keith), Percy Daggs III (Wallace), Daran Norris (Cliff), Francis Capra (Weevil), Kyle Gallner (Beaver) and Christopher B. Duncan (Clarence).

Chris Lowell (Piz) and Ken Marino (Vinnie) will only be appearing as themselves, while Amanda Noret (Madison) and Lisa Thornhill (Celeste) will only be playing their Mars characters.

Additionally, Ryan Devlin — who appeared in Mars‘ third season as rapist Mercer Hayes — will replace Teddy Dunn as Duncan.

And lastly, Robert Buckley and Rose McIver — both stars of creator Rob Thomas’ upcoming CW series iZombie — will also join the cast in various roles.
