Toni Braxton is stopping by The Neighborhood.

The Grammy-winning singer has signed on for a guest role as herself on the season 6 finale of the CBS comedy.

According to Entertainment Weekly, which broke the news, the episode is loosely based on a real-life experience involving cast member Marcel Spears, whose girlfriend went into labor at a Beyoncé concert.

This time the labor will play out at a Toni Braxton concert when Courtney’s [Skye Townsend] water breaks just as the concert begins.

“Season 6 of The Neighborhood has been a wonderful labor of love (pun intended),” series star and executive producer Cedric the Entertainer told EW. “We are even more excited to have the legendary songstress Toni Braxton join our lovefest as a guest star on the season finale. Make sure you watch!”

The Neighborhood airs Mondays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on CBS.

Braxton has a lot of projects on the horizon.

She and Cedric are co-headlining the “Love & Laughter” residency in The Chelsea at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas. The “one-of-a-kind music and comedy limited engagement” launches on April 27.

Braxton is also returning to reality TV with her sisters Towanda, Trina, Tamar, and their mom Ms. Evelyn Braxton.

The new show is titled The Braxtons, as previously reported.

“This season will be raw and unfiltered as we share in all the family fun, hardships, and even their love lives – including Ms. Evelyn’s search for a life partner,” WE tv said last month.

Cameras will also follow Toni along on her Vegas residency. Plus, viewers will see Towanda balancing business and motherhood as she raises two teenagers, and plays a major role in the life of her nephew Kevin, who is navigating life without his mom Traci Braxton, who died in March 2022.

The Braxtons is executive produced by Tara Long and Ri-Karlo Handy for Blink49 alongside Datari Turner for Datari Turner Productions. Toni, Tamar, Trina, Towanda and Evelyn Braxton are executive producers as well.

A premiere date on WE tv will be announced later.
