Big news for Heatwave, Chase, Blades, and Boulder: in the fourth season of Discovery Family Channel’s Transformers Rescue Bots, the Autobots will not only celebrate their 100th episode, but they’ll get two new friends, including the first female Rescue Bot!

ER and Doctor Who’s Alex Kingston will guest star as Quickshadow, the first female Bot, while The Last Man on Earth and Bob’s Burgers star Kristen Schaal will provide the voice for another new Bot, Chickadee, in episodes airing later in Season 4.

The new season of the Emmy and Annie Award-nominated series premieres with back-to-back episodes on April 23. “New Normal” and Bride Building” finds the Rescue Bots forced to reveal their extraterrestrial backgrounds to the good people of Griffin Rock, when an evil alien group invades the town.

It’s up to the citizens to vote on whether or not the Bots get to stay in town, but, spoiler alert, since the rest of the season revolves around the gang completing construction of the cool new Mainland Training Center – as seen in the Season 4 trailer above – it’s probably safe to assume Heatwave and the gang will remain Griffin Rock presences for the foreseeable future.

Transformers Rescue Bots Season 4 premieres April 23 at 8 a.m. on Discovery Family Channel
