Glee is going to get even funnier!

Television comedy icon Carol Burnett will appear on an episode of FOX’s musical hit this fall, according to EW.com.

The six-time Emmy winner will play the Nazi-hunting mom of Jane Lynch‘s character, Sue Sylvester.

The Cheerios’ leader referenced her parents in an episode last season but, according to the report, Mama Sylvester will be heading to Lima, Ohio, solo.

The episode is expected to air in October or November.

Landing Burnett, whose own variety show hosted a bevy guest stars, is the latest in Glee news about tapping outside talent, since creator Ryan Murphy dropped names at Comic Con and at a recent Television Critics Association panel.
