Back in December, Prince was rumored to be making a rare television appearance in an episode of Fox’s New Girl set to air on Super Bowl Sunday. Now, the network has confirmed that the legendary singer will indeed guest-star as himself.
In the upcoming episode, titled “Party Time,” Jess, played by Zooey Deschanel, and best friend Cece, portrayed by Hannah Simone, are invited to one of Prince’s notorious mansion parties, which the rest of Jess’ roommates are determined to crash.
The role marks Prince’s first-ever guest spot on a TV comedy. Viewers should also anticipate special guest cameo appearances.
The episode is scheduled to air February 2 at 10:30 p.m. ET on Fox.
