Jane the Virgin Books Britney Spears as Rogelio's Nemesis in Season 2

After conquering Vegas with her Piece of Me residency show, Britney Spears is setting her sights on a new venue: the Marbella!

“We are so thrilled that Rogelio’s ‘nemesis’ — Britney Spears — has agreed to appear on Jane The Virgin in episode 205,” said executive producer Jennie Synder Urman in a statement. “Personally, after hearing about their long standing feud (from Rogelio’s point of view), we are eager to hear Ms. Spears’ side of the story, which we assume is quite different. #TeamBritney”

“The quality of their interaction is a little bit in dispute between what Britney thinks and what Rogelio thinks,” Urman added Tuesday during the Television Critics Association summer press tour in Beverly Hills. “We’d written some stuff about what Rogelio had said about Britney, how he’d done a residency in Vegas … so we when we found out she was a big fan, we said, ‘Will you please, please be on the show?'”

The Princess of Pop first broke the news herself on Twitter:

And it’s safe to say the cast of Jane is equally excited about Spears’ arrival:

Spears previously appeared on How I Met Your MotherWill & Grace and Glee.

Jane the Virgin returns Monday, Oct. 12.

    this is awesome! remember, the creators of HIMYM said they were a fledgling series ratings wise and then Britney came along and the show became one of the top raters of CBS. HOpe this happens with Jane too.
