Megan Fox posts 'angsty' selfie, joins 'New Girl' as recurring guest star

She's baaack! Megan Fox resurfaced Thursday on Instagram to showcase her "angsty relationship" with social media on the same day it was announced that she'll guest star on "New Girl."

"Hi. I'm still here, I just continue to have an angsty relationship with social media. But what better way to express my apprehension than with a selfie. This time in black n white!" the "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" star wrote, sharing a monochromatic snap. 

It's the first time the actress posted on social media since her August divorce filing from her husband of five years, Brian Austin Green of "Beverly Hills, 90210" fame. The 29-year-old cited irreconcilable differences in her petition and requested joint legal and physical custody of their two sons, Noah, 2, and Bodhi, 1.

But it's not all emo heartache for the young stunner. The actress will be joining the cast of "New Girl" as a recurring guest star when the show returns in January, the Fox broadcast network announced the same day.

The "This is 40" alum will appear in a multi-episode arc of the hit comedy as Reagan, "a gorgeous, straight-shooting pharmaceutical sales rep who comes to town on business and shakes things up in the loft when she rents out Jess' (series star Zooey Deschanel) room while she is sequestered on jury duty," the network said in a statement.

"It's insane to me that such a gorgeous person can be so funny, but I guess we just all have to accept it," executive producer Liz Meriwether said. "I've been a fan of her comedic skills since 'This is 40,' and I'm so excited to have her on the show. We had Megan in mind when we wrote this part. She’s the perfect person to come in and shake these guys up."

Fox will first appear in the sixth episode of the fifth season alongside series stars Jake Johnson, Max Greenfield, Lamorne Morris and Hannah Simone. It's still unclear whether Deschanel, who welcomed her first child with husband Jacob Pechenik in August, will be on hiatus for a few episodes.

The "Transformers" alum is also among the many stars slated to appear in the upcoming season, which will air its milestone 100th episode during its uninterrupted run of all-new episodes. "Portlandia's" Fred Armisen, "SNL" star Taran Killam, "Scream Queens" star Nasim Pedrad, comedian Rob Riggle, "Sleepy Hollow's" John Cho, "Airplane's" Julie Hagerty and "Happy Days" alum Henry Winkler also will guest star.
