From Wisteria Lane to Brooklyn, New York!

Eva Longoria booked a three-episode arc on Brooklyn Nine-Nine next season. The 39-year-old actress will play a defense attorney who challenges Andy Samberg's Jake Peralta in court. E! News confirms that Longoria's character catches Peralta's eye — but hopefully, she won't disrupt the burgeoning romance between him and Amy Santiago, played by Melissa Fumero

The former Desperate Housewives actress will join a cast that includes two Latina actresses: Fumero and our "On My Radar" blogger Stephanie BeatrizBeatriz took to Twitter to share her excitement over Longoria's guest role. "One of my heroes is coming to #brooklyn99," she wrote. 

The Golden Globe winning comedy will return to Fox on Sunday, September 28 at 8:30pm! Will you be watching?
