Britney Spears is set to guest star on the upcoming second season of Gina Rodriguez‘s hit CW series Jane the Virgin!

The news was revealed by series creator Jennie Snyder Urman, who also spilled the beans on the role that Britney will play.

“We are so thrilled that Rogelio’s ‘nemesis’ — Britney Spears — has agreed to appear on Jane The Virgin in episode 205,” Jennie said in a statement. “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.”

Gina Rodriguez Says 'No To Keyboard Courage' After Having To Defend Her Gorgeous 'People En Espanol' Cover

Gina Rodriguez‘s smile lights up the new cover of People en Espanol.

The 31-year-old Jane The Virgin actress was so excited to share the glam cover with her fans on Instagram, but was a bit shocked when she had to defend it!

Gina wrote, “You know what saddens my heart, is when you try and celebrate an accomplishment with those that have helped you achieve it and no matter what, someone, anyone, has something negative to say. Whether it was from the way my toes curled under to the way I typed my spanish. We desire to project our own insecurities and hatred on another. When did we decide social media was for hating, for putting others down rather than lifting them up.”

She added, “I refuse to participate in that kind of world. Before you write a comment today on anyone’s picture or anyone’s page ask yourself would you want others to say that about yourself? What am I getting out of being mean to another person I have never met? Yesterday I shared my joy for the cover of @peopleenespanol and I was blown away at the immediate hate projected on my page. My question to you today is this, do you know the power you have in this world and do you desire to use it for good? I do. #NoToKeyboardCourage.”

Gina is also pictured leaving a boxing class in New Orleans, La., on Friday morning (August 7).
