Megan Fox Is Coming To TV, Find Out How.

is making a comeback — the newly single actress not only returned to Instagram on Thursday, Sept. 17, after splitting from husband Brian Austin Green, but Fox announced she’s joining the cast of New Girl as a recurring guest star! “Hi. The Transformers and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles star will play Reagan, a “gorgeous, straight-shooting pharmaceutical sales rep who comes to town on business and shakes things up in the loft” while Deschanel’s character, Jess, is sequestered for jury duty. “I’ve been a fan of her comedic skills since This is 40, and I’m so excited to have her on the show.Here’s the plan: Several episodes into the season, Deschanel’s Jess will find herself on sequestered during jury duty (and will not appear in the show).An actress who doesn’t have to actually be starring in anything in order to make headlines, kicked off her career on TV before rocketing to fame on the big screen in Transformers. But don’t worry, she’s not replacing Jess—Fox will be playing a new character named Reagan who sublets the teacher’s room while she’s sequestered on jury duty.

We had Megan in mind when we wrote this part – she’s the perfect person to come in and shake these guys up.” The role will mark Fox’s first major TV gig in a decade, having last had a series regular role on ABC’s Hope & Faith. As for Deschanel, she’ll be off camera for four episodes of the upcoming season — with the writers accommodating her absence by writing Jess into a sequestered jury. “The idea behind it was to be able to do those pastel courtroom sketches, so you could still see her in the jury,” creator Liz Meriwether told THR at the end of last season. “It’s a little weird, but we’re having fun with it. She will also join James Franco, Will Ferrell and Seth Rogen in “Zeroville.” Created by Liz Meriwether, “New Girl” is produced by Chernin Entertainment in association with 20th Century Fox Television.

With Damon Wayans Jr.’s Coach moving out in the season four finale, that left Jess, Nick (Jake Johnson), Schmidt (Max Greenfield), and Winston (Lamorne Morris) sharing the loft. She also wed Jacob Pechenki over the summer. (And in other New Girl birth-beat news, Max Greenfield welcomed his second child, a baby boy, last month). New Girl Season 5 is slated to premiere in January 2016 with what FOX is calling “an uninterrupted run of all-new episodes.” Other guest stars the series has on tap for the new season include Fred Armisen (Portlandia), Taran Killam (Saturday Night Live), Nasim Pedrad (Scream Queens), Rob Riggle (21 Jump Street), and John Cho (Selfie). Her filing came just days after Us Weekly exclusively revealed that Fox and Green had separated seven months ago. “Things have been rocky,” one source told Us about the couple’s relationship, while another added that Fox is extremely “independent” and can go “weeks without talking to another human…She’s gone off and done her own thing recently.”

Over the past four years, New Girl has brought in a ton of guest stars like Rob Reiner, Lizzy Caplan, Linda Cardellini, Jamie Lee Curtis, Olivia Munn, Carla Gugino, Stephen Amell, Jon Lovitz and many more. The last time we saw her on TV was in an appearance on TBS’ short-lived Wedding Band, and she voiced Lois Lane in the animated Robot Chicken: DC Comics Special.
