Megan Fox will be the new girl on “New Girl” for the Fox sitcom’s upcoming season, Variety has confirmed.

Fox will play Reagan, who rents out Zooey Deschanel’s character’s room in the loft while she is away on jury duty. Her first appearance on the show will come in the sixth episode of the new season, which begins in January of next year.

“New Girl,” entering its fifth season, also stars Jake Johnson, Max Greenfield, Hannah Simone and Lamorne Morris.

Fox was last seen in 2014’s “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles,” and she will also appear in its sequel, bowing next year. Her big break came in 2007’s “Transformers,” a franchise that has just announced big developments. She will also join James Franco, Will Ferrell and Seth Rogen in “Zeroville.”

The sitcom has hosted a slew of impressive guest stars, including Jamie Lee Curtis, Rob Reiner, Prince, Olivia Munn, Josh Gad and Lizzy Caplan.

Created by Liz Meriwether, “New Girl” is produced by Chernin Entertainment in association with 20th Century Fox Television. Meriwether, Dave Finkel, Brett Baer, Jake Kasdan, Peter Chernin and Katherine Pope are executive producers. The series was picked up for another season in March.

    How Megan Fox is still working is beyond me. It’s amazing that she had gotten by this far with no actual talent.
