Just when you thought it couldn’t possibly get more exciting that Season 3 of K.C. Undercover officially premieres on Disney Channel tonight, the action-packed spy show just got another majorly exciting upgrade. Descendants 2 actress China Anne McClain is joining her friend and fellow Disney legend Zendaya on the series for a highly-anticipated guest-starring spot in the show’s season opener.

According to China’s IMDb page, she plays the role of Sheena in an episode titled “Welcome to the Jungle,” in which “K.C., Ernie and Marisa are on the run from Zane and eccentric enemy agent Sheena in the heart of the Brazilian jungle.”

China is scheduled to appear in at least two more eps over the course of the season, titled “Coopers on the Run” Parts 1 and 2. “In [a] special one-hour episode [“Coopers on the Run”], K.C. and her family of spies, along with her BFF Marisa, are on the run in beautiful Rio de Janeiro with an enemy agent like none before fast on their trail.”

In celebration of tonight’s episode, China shared an Instagram gallery full of behind-the-scenes pics she snapped with Zendaya on set during filming.

Remember back when Zendaya was a guest-star on China’s Disney Channel show A.N.T. Farm for the series’ own second season premiere? We are so pumped to see them working together again!
