Black-ish viewers were already treated to a Michelle Obama cameo on season eight. But, as a new report has confirmed, she wasn't the only big-named celebrity to visit the set of the ABC series for its final season. In fact, she was one of many.

On January 11, PEOPLE confirmed that the long-running and highly favored sitcom released a list of guest stars on Tuesday.

On the list were several famous faces, including Olympic gymnast Simone Biles and famed NBA pro Magic Johnson.

There will also be a number of other NBA players joining Johnson with cameos on the ABC sitcom, including DeAndre Jordan, , Kendrick Nunn, Montrezl Harrell, Kent Bazemore, Malik Monk, Dwight Howard, and Rajon Rondo will also make guest appearances.

It is unclear whether all of the NBC stars will be seen together, or if they'll be on different episodes.

As PEOPLE reminded readers on Tuesday, Michelle Obama, the former first lady, appeared on the premiere episode of the final season of Black-ish, which aired on ABC on January 3, after her cameo was teased in an Instagram post a short time prior.

During an interview with the Wall Street Journal earlier this month, cast member Tracee Ellis Ross revealed she reached out to Obama herself.

"It was wonderful," Ross recalled. "She and I are friends. It was a phone call I made. We got to do really important subject matter that's mixed in with fun, so it's receivable."

In another piece for Entertainment Weekly, Ross addressed how important she felt Black-ish was to today's society.

"I fell in love with the script," she wrote. "We got to see a Black family that was thriving and not just surviving. And I was drawn to this loving relationship between a couple. I had rarely seen that on sitcoms — there wasn't just constant eye-rolling. And Rainbow was a woman who was more than just one thing: She was not just a wife. She was not just a mother. She was also a doctor. She had a real point of view."

Also in the piece, Ross said she was so proud and happy to have been a part of the show.

"I really loved dancing with my onscreen husband, Anthony Anderson. And it was the honor of my life to witness and be a part of these beautiful children growing up before our eyes — these talented individuals who became wonderful young adults while we were on the show," she stated.

Black-ish season eight airs on Tuesday nights at 9:30/8:30c on ABC.
