Mary J. Blige Is Heading to How to Get Away with Murder

The singer will get it percolatin' at Middleton University

Sadie Gennis

Mary J. Blige will guest-star on How to Get Away with Murder's upcoming third season, Deadline reports.

Details about the Grammy winner's role and plotline are being kept a secret, but it's possible her character will connect with the new mystery that will be revealed in the season premiere.

This isn't Blige's first turn at acting. Earlier this year, the singer earned a Critics' Choice TV Award nomination for her role as Evillene in NBC's live production of The Wiz. She's also appeared on Empire, black-ish, 30 Rock and in the film Mudbound, alongside Carey Mulligan.

Dexter alum Luna Vélez has also joined Murder's cast in a recurring role as the present of Middleton University, where Annalise Keating (Viola Davis) teaches.

How to Get Away with Murder returns Thursday, Sept. 22 at 10/9c on ABC.
