Maslany is set to guest star on Parks and Recreation this season! According to Entertainment Weekly, she’ll appear in the fifth and sixth episodes. But who is she playing?

“She will guest-star as a love interest for Tom Haverford (Aziz Ansari) on Parks and Recreation, NBC has confirmed,” writes EW.

We’re glad others seem to appreciate the talents of the actress who was so wrongfully passed over for an Emmy nomination recently. Now I’m wondering if they’ll make a passing reference to the BBC America series.

The season premiere of Parks and Recreation is set for September 26.
