Barr's character, Darla, is described as the "hypercritical" mother of Doug (Richter), who works with Nathan (Will Arnett) at the local TV station.

The gig represents a change of heart for Barr, who declared back in November that she was "never going to work in television again" following two failed development deals and her short-lived 2011 Lifetime reality series, Roseanne's Nuts.

In recent years, Barr has guest-starred on The Office and Portlandia.

The Millers airs Thursdays at 8:30/7:30c on CBS. Are you excited for Barr's appearance?
