Denise Huxtable’s heading to New Girl.

The Cosby Show alum Lisa Bonet has landed a guest role on the Fox comedy, EW has confirmed.

As TVLine first reported, Bonet will play an education guru at a teachers’ conference that Jess and Coach attend. At the conference, Jess is paired with Julian Morris’ Ryan, the “distractingly handsome” new teacher who replaces Jess when she takes the vice principal position. Ryan is slated to make his New Girl debut on Oct. 14.

New Girl airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. on Fox.
