Zooey Deschanel, or at least her beautiful voice, will appear on The Simpsons September 30.
The 24th season premiere (yes, 24th) will feature America’s favorite Midwestern family traveling to New York City in search of Bart’s long-lost love Mary Spuckler, voiced by the Emmy-nominated New Girl star.
Bart has wanted to reconnect with Mary ever since she left Springfield and her hillbilly family there to reinvent herself in the Big Apple. Meanwhile, Lisa and Marge look forward to experiencing all the city has to offer.
The episode is titled “Moonshine River.” Cross your fingers that she'll sing on it; Deschanel also guest voiced the same character in "Apocalypse Cow," the 17th episode of The Simpsons Season 19.
Real-life Zooey returns Tuesday, September 25, with two New Girl episodes.
