The Washington, D.C.-based TV drama Madam Secretary is getting some beltway bigwigs to guest star this season.

On Tuesday, the CBS show, which stars Téa Leoni as Secretary of State Elizabeth McCord, announced on Twitter that former secretary of state and Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton will appear in the season premiere. The tweet also featured a photo of Clinton alongside former secretaries of state Colin Powell and Madeline Albright, who will also be on the episode.

Clinton shared her excitement for the episode’s debut and said it was “wonderful” to spend time with the cast.

Albright, who has previously appeared on the show, shared a funny tweet about the appearance, writing that “it’s always nice to consult with my successors.


Fans of the show reacted with excitement about the heavy-hitters joining the premiere, sharing high-five GIFs and comments.

One person wrote what many people were probably thinking when they saw the picture of the three former secretaries together.

This is not Clinton’s first television appearance. She appeared on Broad City in 2016, she has been a video clue presenter on Jeopardy several times, and she has been on almost every talk show — from The View to The O’Reilly Factor.

The Madam Secretary season premiere airs Oct. 7 on CBS.
