Britney Spears will be returning to TV this fall.

The pop star confirmed Tuesday that she will be guest-starring in the upcoming season of The CW's Jane the Virgin.

Spears announced her return to TV via Twitter on Tuesday.

"See u at the Marbella Hotel soon, @hereisgina @jaimecamil! Guest starring on one of my favorite shows EVER @CWJaneTheVirgin #DreamComeTrue," tweeted Spears, mentioning Jane the Virgin stars Gina Rodriguez and Jaime Camil.

Golden Globe winner Rodriguez, 31, tweeted right back.

Camil also Tweeted, calling Spears' upcoming appearance "a great honor," and Rodriguez's on-screen leading man Justin Baldoni wrote on Twitter.

Britney Spears, 33, is not new to making guest appearances on television. She appeared in How I Met your Mother in 2008 and Will & Grace in 2006. However, according to People magazine, her appearance in Jane the Virgin is extra special for the singer because the CW series is one of her favorite shows on television.

"I get really into Jane the Virgin," Spears told People. "It's fun."

Showrunner Jennie Snyder Urman shared a bit about Spears' plotline.

"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."

Snyder Urman added that approaching Britney with an offer to appear on the show was a no-brainer.

"When we found out she was a fan, we said, 'Would you please, please be on the show?' Happily she said yes."
