Fresh off a stint on Mad Men, Freaks and Geeks alum Linda Cardellini has landed a recurring role on another popular TV series. She’ll be playing Zooey Deschanel’s sister in multiple episodes of New Girl later this season, THR reports. Cardellini’s character, Jess’s wild sister Abby, is tentatively set to make her first appearance  on the show in February.

New Girl’s third season has also seen Damon Wayans Jr., who was in the pilot, play a recurring role. Prince is also set to guest star on the show in the show’s post-Super Bowl episode.
