Last season’s new girl on New Girl will be back.

Megan Fox will be returning to the loft-y comedy in season 6 for a major arc spanning up to eight episodes, EW has confirmed. Her coolly confident character, Reagan, won’t be back at the start of the new season, however; she will be back around midseason to accommodate the actress’s real-life pregnancy, long after Nick (Jake Johnson) returns from his trip to help Reagan with her new job in New Orleans. Fox originally joined New Girl in season 5 to help buoy the show during series star Zooey Deschanel’s maternity leave.

TV Line first reported the news. New Girl returns Tuesday, Sept. 20, at 8:30 p.m. ET on Fox.
