Michele will guest-star in the sixth episode of the final season of the Kurt Sutter drama, playing Gertie, an empathetic truck-stop waitress and single mother who connects with Gemma (Katey Sagal) during a difficult time. Her episode is slated to air Oct. 14 on FX.

The casting keeps Michele with the 20th Century Fox family, with the studio producing both Glee and Sons of Anarchy.

Michele joins a season-seven cast that also includes Courtney Love and Marilyn Manson, among others.

Sons of Anarchy will return Tuesday, Sept. 9, at 10 p.m. on FX, with live post-show Anarchy Afterword airing immediately after.

Glee returns in 2015 with its abbreviated sixth and final season. An exact date has not yet been announced.
