One of the Housewives is heading over from Wisteria Lane to join the 99th Precinct.

Desperate Housewives actress Eva Longoria is returning to television this fall with a guest starring stint on Fox’s hit comedy Brooklyn Nine-Nine. As first reported by TVLine, Longoira will appear in a three-episode arc as Sophia, “a defense attorney who catches the attention of Jake Peralta (played by Andy Samberg) when she faces off against him in court.”

Along with her starring role in Desperate Housewives, Longoria’s other TV credits include Welcome to the FamilyChildrens Hospital, and Mother Up! She also currently serves as an executive producer on the Lifetime soap opera series Devious Maids.

With the addition of Longoria, Brooklyn Nine-Nine continues to line up quite the impressive guest cast for its sophomore season. The Closer‘s Kyra Sedgwick, former Saturday Night Live actress Jenny Slate, and Agents of SHIELD’s Patton Oswalt are all set to appear during season two as well.

Sedgwick will be in at least two episodes of this season, playing Captain Holt’s longtime nemesis Deputy Chief Madeline Wutch. Slate, who guest stars in the season two premiere, is set to appear as a street smart mob mistress, while Oswalt will reprise his role of Fire Marshall Boone from the post-Super Bowl episode of Brooklyn Nine-Nine, as the show will feature another NYPD-FDNY football game (this time featuring former NFL wide receiver Terrell Owens, who Oswalt’s Boone recruits to play).

Brooklyn Nine-Nine returns to TV for its second season at a new night and time on Sunday, Sept. 28th at 8:30, between The Simpsons and Family Guy as a new part of Fox’s Sunday comedy lineup.
