Raven-Symone is heading to the set of ABC's "Black-ish."

She snagged a guest-starring role on the show playing Dre’s (Anthony Anderson) gay sister, Rhonda, who is not comfortable discussing her sexuality, Entertainment Weekly first reported. She will appear in an episode titled "Please Don't Ask, Please Don't Tell."

Reps for Raven-Symone and ABC were not immediately available for further comment on the role.

On Tuesday, the 29-year-old actress shared a photo on Instagram of how she'd been styled for the show. Instead of her platinum, shaved hairstyle, she was rocking long, dark waves instead.


She also posted a photo with "Black-ish" makeup artist Nadyne Hicks.


A child star known for her roles in "The Cosby Show," "Hangin' with Mr. Cooper" and "That's So Raven," Raven-Symone recently made her TV comeback on an episode of Fox's "Empire."
