It’s almost a right of passage for celebrities to appear as themselves on an animated series, and even though One Direction is on a break, Entertainment Weekly is reporting that the boy band will soon be hanging out with the Griffins on “Family Guy.”

The Fox sitcom will feature Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Harry Styles, and Louis Tomlinson in an episode in which Chris is running for homecoming king. The British heartthrobs will appear in a campfire scene with baby Stewie, who’s telling scary stories, one in particular that involves non-skinny jeans which might scare the pants off all the 1D members.

“There are not a lot of shows that, in the same season, feature guest-star appearances by both Frank Sinatra, Jr. and One Direction,” ‘Family Guy’ executive producers Richard Appel and Steve Callaghan tell EW. “And we really enjoyed their time with us, until we realized we were both old enough to be their fathers.”

Simon Cowell is also slated to make an appearance in this episode as a character, but it has not been confirmed as to whether it will be Cowell doing the voice.

The episode entitled “Run, Chris, Run” is set to air in May on Fox.
