The pop star, who was this week confirmed as a judge on The X Factor USA, made a cameo in the show's second series - but is now set to get another episode dedicated to her in the fourth season, according to Entertainment Weekly.
Britters' original episode is still one of the most popular in the show's history and the new one is reportedly going to feature eight of her songs.
Unlike the first episode, it will not be centred on the character of Brittany.
EW says that Fox execs hope the Britney special will boost interest in The X Factor USA - and it is claimed that they are trying to get her to appear in the new episode too.
