Britney Spears is set to guest star as herself in the fifth episode of the upcoming second season of Jane The Virgin, Variety reports. Her character Abby on How ‘I Met Your Mother’ was well-loved and now fans will get to see the singer back on TV.
The 33-year-old and The CW just announced she’ll guest star on on her absolute favorite TV show.
Showrunner Jennie Snyder Urman released the following statement:
“We are so thrilled that Rogelio’s ‘nemesis’ — Britney Spears — has agreed to appear on “Jane The Virgin” in episode 205. Personally, after hearing about their long standing fued (from Rogelio’s point of view), we are eager to hear Ms. Spears’ side of the story, which we assume is quite different. #TeamBritney”
Urman stated during a Television Critics Association panel on Tuesday: “We’re really excited. We have a backstory, it turns out she is a real nemesis of Rogelio’s, but the sort of quality of their attraction is a little bit in dispute between what Rogelio thinks and what Britney thinks.”
“When we found out she was a fan, we said, ‘Would you please, please be on the show?’ Happily she said yes,” she added.
