Roseanne Barr is returning to ABC. The comedian has landed a guest-starring role on the network’s new comedy Cristela, EW has learned exclusively.

The Roseanne alum will play Veronica, Trent’s (Sam McMurray) estranged wife. Though they still love each other, they just can’t seem to get along. A former hippie-turned-lawyer/activist, Veronica does pro bono work, which appeals to Cristela (Cristela Alonzo). (Who wants to bet there’s a joke about starring on titular shows?)

Barr is filming her episode this week, which is slated to air in early January.

Cristela airs Fridays at 8:30 p.m. ET on ABC.
