Linda Cardellini is set to return to TV in FOX's comedy New Girl.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Cardellini is set to play Abby, Jess’ (Zooey Deschanel) wild sister in a recurring role for the Golden Globe and Emmy nominated series.

Cardellini joins the members of the Day family which includes parents Joan and Bob, played by Jamie Lee Curtis and Rob Reiner respectively.

The ER and Freaks & Geeks actress had a recurring guest role in AMC’s drama Mad Men for which she earned an Emmy nomination playing Don Draper’s neighbor and love interest, Sylvia Rosen.

The news of Cardellini’s role comes days after it was announced that Prince will appear on the Super Bowl episode as himself. The news was confirmed by E!, stating that the musician is a big fan of the show and asked for a guest spot. Not much is known about his storyline, however it looks like he will interfere with quirky couple Jess and Nick (Jake Johnson).

Cardellini and Prince join the ever growing guest role stint which also includes The O.C’s alumni Adam Brody, who will play Jess’ former flame this upcoming February.

New Girl airs on Tuesdays at 9 p.m. on FOX.
