One of the funniest comedies of 2014, Mike Judge’s satire Silicon Valley is heading back to HBO this spring bigger, better, and presumably more bong-loaded than ever. While some aspects of the show will be different, one thing that’s remaining the same is a guest list of big names in the tech world, and HBO has confirmed that Olympian venture capitalists Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss will be making an appearance in Season 2.

Fans of the hyper-wealthy twins can expect to see them popping up in the Season 2 premiere in April, according to THR. It isn’t publicly known yet how the siblings will enter into the lives of Richard, Erlich, Gilfoyle, Dinesh and Jared yet, but a preview that HBO released last month gave us a clue, even if it wasn’t clear that the Winklevosses were definitely on board then.

If you watch the beginning of the video below, you’ll see the Pied Piper guys hanging out at AT&T Park, where the San Francisco Giants play. And then you’ll see the twins as the camera pans by. So what are they all doing on a baseball field when no one else is in the stadium? No clue.

The Winklevosses came to fame after creating ConnectU in the early 2000s, after which they got into a legal battle with Mark Zuckerberg over the creation of Facebook. That process was turned into David Fincher’s 2010 drama The Social Network – in which they were played by actor Armie Hammer – and the film went on to win Best Picture and more at the 65th Annual Academy Awards. They followed that up by getting into the Bitcoin business and seed funding, which makes them great for cameo spots in this series.

They won’t be the only tech biggies heading to Season 2, either. It was confirmed recently that Snapchat CEO Evan Spiegel will also appear in the premiere, playing himself in what looks to be a prominent role. And Judge and his team have landed a handful of other prominent brainiacs to pop up later. Last season saw Re/code editor-in-chief Kara Swisher, Google chairman Eric Schmidt and TechCrunch founder Michael Arrington making guest appearances.

Silicon Valley – which has added Suzanne Cryer and Jimmy O. Yang as regulars, with Alice Wetterlund recurring – will make its Season 2 premirere on Sunday, April 12 at 10 p.m. ET. Go Pied Piper!
