ricky gervaisIn what may be the most unique mid-season series, ABC has just added some star power to their musical-comedy-period series Galavant. According to EW, comedian and actor Ricky Gervais has landed a guest spot on the series as a magical wizard named Xanax who has all the best potions in the land and helps folks through alchemy induced trips down memory lane. Gervais joins previously announced guest-stars John Stamos and Hugh Bonneville.

The series is expected to debut sometime in 2015.

If you aren’t familiar with the series, here is the trailer we ran back in May.
