Reba McEntire will return to the small screen Thursday night (Feb. 13) with her much-anticipated guest appearance on the popular CBS sitcom, Young Sheldon.

In the episode, McEntire plays the role of June, the ex-wife of Craig T. Nelson’s character Dale Ballard. The “fun and fiery” June becomes friends with Meemaw (played by Annie Potts), who is in a relationship with the local little league coach. Things get a little hairy when June lets Meemaw in on what kind of guy Dale really is.

Prior to the debut of the Valentine’s Day-themed episode, McEntire and the show’s stars are taking fans behind the scenes of the hit show in a just-released video clip. Check it out below.

Young Sheldon, which is the prequel to the award-winning comedy The Big Bang Theory, airs Thursdays at 8/7c on CBS.

No stranger to sitcoms, McEntire previously starred in the WB comedy, Reba, which ran from 2001-2007. Her Reba co-star, Melissa Peterman, also stars in Young Sheldon, however, TVLine  previously reported that the longtime friends will not “cross paths” during the episode.

The Oklahoma native also starred in Malibu Country on ABC and has appeared on shows such as Last Man StandingBaby Daddy and The Neighbors.

This Spring, Reba McEntire will return to the road for a 2020 tour, which is set to kick off March 20 in Evansville, Indiana.
