While originally expected to only be appearing in a single episode, TVLine now reports that Deschanel will not only appear in The Simpsons' September 30 season premiere but will return for a special Valentine's Day episode entitled "Love Is A Many-Splintered Thing".

The episode will reportedly see Bart and Mary's relationship come under strain when he fails to pay enough attention to the couple's relationship.

Deschanel was recently nominated for an Emmy nomination in the 'Lead Actress in a Comedy Series' category for her work on New Girl.

She has described the nomination as "an incredible life moment".
