In season four of Finding Your Roots, it seems oddly right that comedian Larry David and politician Bernie Sanders have more in common than they thought, tracing their roots back to Jewish communities in Eastern Europe.

PBS’ series returns as Henry Louis Gates Jr. explores the mysteries, surprises and revelations hidden in the family trees of a whole new slate of celebrities including Scarlett Johansson, Lupita Nyong’o, Ted Danson, Carmelo Anthony, Janet Mock, Ana Navarro, Ava DuVernay, Amy Schumer, Paul Rudd, Christopher Walken, Carly Simon, Garrison Keillor, Dr. Phil and more.

Finding Your Roots premieres October 3 on PBS.
