Ya girl, Zendaya.

According to People, which first broke the news, the K.C. Undercover star landed a guest role as Resheida, new friend of Zoey (played by our winter 2014 cover girl, Yara Shahidi). Word on the street is, Zendaya’s character has grown up without a father, so when she meets Dre (Zoey’s dad), she immediately takes a liking to him.
Knowing Zoey, she will not be down with having a friend who may side with her dad over her — or worse, try to take her place — so we’ll just have to watch and see how things really play out.
Black-ish airs every Wednesday (starting Sept. 23) at 9:30 p.m. on ABC. (And yes, girl, we know that’s right in the middle of Empire — but that’s what DVRs are for!)
