'New Girl' Season 3 Spoilers: Prince Guest Stars in First TV Appearance & Causes Rift Between Jess and Nick [VIDEO]

Close

Prince is set to guest star in an upcoming episode of New Girl, marking the musician's first television appearance.

The singer's character may stir up trouble on the show by causing a rift between Jess (Zooey Deschanel) and Nick (Jake Johnson), according to E! News. It is still unclear if he will be the root of jealousy or make one of them insecure about the other. 

The singer-songwriter's first TV appearance will air on Super Bowl Sunday, Feb. 2.

The Purple Rain crooner contacted the show's executives and asked to make an appearance on the Fox comedy since he is such a fan of the show, Idolator reported. He pitched them an idea involving one of his famous pajama dance parties and was given the green light. 

Hannah Simone, who plays the role of Cece on New Girl, build up excitement for the announcement on Dec. 11 when she tweeted, "Big Deal Alert! Exciting news coming tomorrow." Prince retweeted Simone's post via his band 3RDEYEGIRL's account on Dec. 12.

Aside from his acting endeavors, Prince will be collaborating with Rita Ora on her new album.

"I have met him and I have had the honor of being in the same studio as him," she told The Mirror about working with Prince. "We messed around with some music and you know, I can't believe he can play so many instruments. All I can say is that we've definitely done some music together." 

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