Fox has confirmed media reports that music icon Prince will make a special appearance on the post-Super Bowl episode of New Girl, guest starring as himself. Plus the network released full details of the episode, and the post-Bowl Brooklyn Nine-Nine episode.
Here are the official descriptions:
New Girl: “In the episode, Party Time, Jess (Emmy Award and Golden Globe nominee Zooey Deschanel) is ready to paint the town purple when a chance encounter finds her and best friend Cece (Hannah Simone) invited to a once-in-a-lifetime mansion party thrown by music legend Prince, guest-starring as himself. Not wanting to miss out on the fun, Nick (Jake Johnson), Schmidt (Max Greenfield), Winston (Lamorne Morris) and Coach (guest star Damon Wayans, Jr.) are determined to crash the festivities, building toward an unforgettable ending. The episode also will feature special guest cameo appearances.”
Brooklyn Nine-Nine: “Jake (Andy Samberg, who won this year’s Golden Globe Award for Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series – Comedy or Musical) and Amy (Melissa Fumero) investigate a string of hotel robberies together, but their partnership is put to the test when he finds out she may leave the Nine-Nine to work in the Major Crimes unit with “The Vulture” (guest star Dean Winters). Meanwhile Captain Holt (Andre Braugher) and Sergeant Jeffords (Terry Crews) strategize to make the precinct more efficient. Fred Armisen and Super Bowl-winning quarterback Joe Thiesmann guest-star, among other surprise appearances.”
Both episodes run after the Super Bowl on Feb. 2.
