Uzo Aduba is full of black girl magic so this news makes sense. If you're into animated shows then it's impossible to miss Steven Universe . The Cartoon Network coming of age show features the magical aliens known as Crystal Gems. Steven and crew are big in the blerd community

And now Uzo is taking her talents to Beach City.

When Steven Universe  returns we'll be introduced to Bismuth, voiced by Aduba. Her debut will be the first-ever full musical episode of the series. Steven Universe's airing schedule has been a little wacky, but fans of the series will get 20 new episodes starting this month. Uzo's character will show up in August

This is right up her alley.

This marks Aduba's first time in an animated role but it won't be her last. The Emmy Award-winning actress is best known for her role as "Crazy Eyes" in Orange is the New Black and joined the My Little Pony movie cast, which hits theaters next October

For fans of Steven Universe (like me) this is huge in the life of the show. Having the queen Uzo Aduba guest star as a brand new Crystal Gem will be lit. I can't wait to see how the story line for her character Bismuth unfolds. New episodes of Steven Universe start airing on Cartoon Network on July 18th. 

Here's a clip of Uzo to get you even more hype.
