''The Social Network'' star has sporadically appeared in numerous episodes of the series since June last year, her most recent appearance was in the November 15 episode, ''Spies like Us''.

Song spent last year focusing on her career. In February, she was cast as one of the leads in NBC's ''Daddy's Girls'' pilot which did not get picked up for the fall season despite being a strong contender. She also appeared in Comedy Central's ''Key and Peele'' television show and starred in the award-winning short film, ''First Kiss''. She was most recently cast in Fox's ''New Girl'' for a recurring role this season.
