Laverne Cox will have a recurring role on the second season of MTV's Faking It.

The comedy centers on two teens who fake being a lesbian couple in order to gain popularity. The only problem is that one of the girls isn't so sure she's faking it.

Amy (played by Rita Volk) and Karma (Katie Stevens) are unpopular at Hester High, despite their best efforts. When the best friends are mistakenly outed as lesbians at a party thrown by Shane (Michael Willett), their popularity soars. They continue the charade to remain in the school's β€œin” crowd.

Cox, who plays a transgender character on Netflix's hit comedy Orange is the New Black, made history earlier this year as the first transgender actress to be nominated for an Emmy Award.

In Faking It, Cox plays Margot, a demanding drama club director at Hester High, according to Entertainment Weekly.

Cox also will guest-star on Bravo's new series Girlfriends' Guide to Divorce.

Faking It season 2 premieres Tuesday, September 23.
