FOX has renewed the Zooey Deschanel comedy New Girl for a fifth season, and John Cho will be featured as a guest star.

Cho, who starred as the leading man in last year’s prematurely canceled ABC rom-com Selfie, is set to appear as a guest star for at least one episode in the upcoming season. He will be portraying a guy that Jess, the protagonist, meets when she “excitedly reports for jury duty,” according to TVLine.

After Hulu aired the remaining episodes of Selfie, Cho has been keeping busy with indie film roles and guest appearances on the small screen. He was last seen as a dashing drug kingpin named Big Murder in episode 16 of The Mindy Projects third season.
