Britney Spears is officially expanding her acting resume with an upcoming appearance on the hit television show Jane The Virgin.

Britney tweeted the news earlier today (August 11), letting fans know she landed a guest role on the show’s second season. She wrote, “See u at the Marbella Hotel soon, @hereisgina @jaimecamil! Guest starring on one of my favorite shows EVER @CWJaneTheVirgin #DreamComeTrue.”

The show’s star, Gina Rodriguez, is equally as excited to work with Britney, and she made it abundantly clear on Twitter.

According to a statement released by Jennie Urman, Britney is set to play the role of Rogelio’s (played by Jaime Camil) nemesis, and will appear in the fifth episode of Season 2. Urman said (via PEOPLE), “Personally, after hearing about their long standing feud (from Rogelio’s point of view), we are eager to hear Ms. Spears’ side of the story, which we assume is quite different. #TeamBritney.”

News of Britney’s upcoming appearance follows a recent interview Gina Rodriguez did with TIME, in which she admitted to having a whole list of actors she was hoping to someday get on the show. She said, “I’m already starting to think of different actors I want to come and join us. Recently there was a supermoon, and so I put out my intentions for the next year on paper, so I can see them, hold myself accountable and really fight for them.”
