This marks Lovato’s first role in an adult series since her arc on Glee in the 2013-14 season. Previously, she was a breakout star on Disney Channel in the series Sonny with a Chance and flicks like Camp Rock.

Lovato joins returning cast members like Wilmer Valderrama in the series, which centers on a bank robber named Seth Gecko and his violent brother, Richard “Richie” Gecko. In season one, they go on the lam ,when they kidnap a family and commandeer their RV—but end up taking a detour to the Titty Twister, a strip club populated by snake-like creatures who survive by drinking human blood. 

The drama will return to El Rey on Aug. 25 at 9 p.m. ET
