Shippers of Schmidt (Max Greenfield) and Cece (Hannah Simone) know it’s only a matter of time until the exes fall back into each other’s arms. But Schmidt’s motives for planting a passionate kiss on his love in New Girl‘s next episode are unexpected, to say the least.
Tag: Hannah Simone (1-10 of 13)
The first two episodes of New Girl‘s fourth season focused on Jess Day’s (Zooey Deschanel) pursuit of love, but the latest installment takes Jess’s eyes off her own romantic conquests when her father Bob (Rob Reiner) breezes into town with a new girlfriend who has plenty of high school history with Jess.
It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia star Kaitlin Olson, who plays the girlfriend in question, talked to EW about crashing the loft tonight for the first of a three-episode arc. “When they offered it to me, I said, ‘Only if there’s full frontal with Rob Reiner,'” she laughs. And, while Olson can’t promise that we’ll see that much of Bob or Ashley (the titular character of “Julie Berkman’s Older Sister”), there will be some incredibly uncomfortable (and explicit) brunch conversation.
Watch the exclusive clip below.
When Schmidt (Max Greenfield) schooling Jess (Zooey Deschanel) in the deceptive art of online dating is the second biggest takeaway of an episode of New Girl, you know things are going to to get legitimately crazy.
Indeed, this exclusive clip showing a stoned Nick (Jake Johnson) takes the cake—and probably eats it like Fat Schmidt in his heyday. Joined by Coach (Damon Wayans Jr.) and Cece (Hannah Simone), Nick practically reverts back to his Baja jacket-wearing college self in the latest episode, “Dice.”
The ep’s title comes from the aforementioned, Tinder-like app. In a second clip, Schmidt teaches Jess to roll the Dice as she continues to move on from Nick. For his part, the Z Is for Zombie author isn’t doing much moving when the weed sends him into a spiral of circular logic and repetition not unlike a malfunctioning Fembot.
So just how do Winston and a party full of LAPD officers come into play? Find out below. READ FULL STORY
New Girl will be hitting the reset button on its fourth season, bringing the show back to basics without the messiness of Nick and Jess’ relationship bogging down the Fox comedy.
Instead, all six of the show’s main characters are now single, providing a new wealth of comedy as they attempt to get back out there with various incoming guest-stars. “If you’re an actor and you want to have sex with one of the New Girl cast members, call Liz Meriwether to figure it out,” the show’s creator jokes of the new season.
But does that mean Nick and Jess are done for good? And will Schmidt and Cece get back together? Below, Meriwether teases what’s in store for the ragtag sextet:

Fair warning, Roomfriends: If you haven’t seen New Girl‘s sea-legged finale, change course now to avoid the iceberg full of SPOILERS ahead. If you have seen the episode, click through while we ready the full recap (UPDATE: It’s live!) and see what Zooey Deschanel, Lamorne Morris, and executive producer Dave Finkel had to say about “Cruise.” (Secondary warning and deepest apologies to Schmidt: Prepare for lots of nautical puns.)

Though New Girl‘s third season has reached its end, star Zooey Deschanel is embarking on her own new adventure as the finale, “Cruise,” shows off several looks from “To Tommy, From Zooey,” the capsule collection Deschanel co-designed with fashion titan Tommy Hilfiger.
Hilfiger notes that Deschanel’s “modical” (mod + nautical) looks — including the dress above — make for a “serendipitous” addition to Tuesday’s episode, which sees the loftmates roped into a high-seas farce after exes Jess (Deschanel) and Nick (Jake Johnson) realize the couples cruise they booked while drunk is non-refundable.
“I didn’t even tell Liz [Meriwether, New Girl‘s creator] I had a fashion line,” Deschanel says about her pieces’ appearance in the show. “I showed several samples to Deborah Maguire, who’s our costume designer…and put them in the mix for Liz and the powers that be to review.” She adds with a laugh: “When I walked [on set] in them, I got so many compliments. People had no idea.”
Below, see two more of Deschanel’s designs from tonight’s episode, plus a few teases about how the finale will play out for the exes and their reluctant shipmates. READ FULL STORY
'New Girl': Linda Cardellini talks humping cars, hooking up with Schmidt in 'Sister II' -- EXCLUSIVE FIRST LOOK
Guess who’s tossing knives and stirring up trouble?
Abby Day has been creating a rumpus since dropping her bags for an indefinite stay at the New Girl loft. Now, in an exclusive First Look video, star Linda Cardellini teases the highjinks her wild-child character will get up to on Tuesday’s episode, “Sister II.” Suffice it to say, no vintage automobile or ex-boyfriend will be safe.
Watch Cardellini weigh in on her sweet hook-up with Schmidt (Max Greenfield) — and get hints of how Schmidt’s former lady love Cece (Hannah Simone) will react.
After the messy breakup between Schmidt (Max Greenfield) and Cece (Hannah Simone), it was only a matter of time before one of them dipped a toe back into the dating pool. But who would have imagined Cece would be the first? (Especially considering she didn’t touch a comb for weeks after getting cheated on by the loft’s own douchebag supreme — and she’s a model!) More to the point, who would have guessed Cece’s return to the dating world would be with another loftmate?
Well, whether you hoped/guessed/nightmare-prophesied this possibility or not, Cece is indeed going out on a date with Coach in tonight’s New Girl. It’s worth pointing out, though, that the episode’s title, “Longest Night Ever,” doesn’t bode well for the pair — it also seems likely to be referring to Jess’ (Zooey Deschanel) attempt to keep Schmidt occupied during the possible hook-up between her bestie and Coach.
As for the date itself, check out this exclusive First Look featurette about what goes down, with commentary from Simone, Wayans, Greenfield, and Lamorne Morris — whose Winston is also looking for love on this particular “Night” (you’ll have to watch the ep for more on that development). Click through to find out where Coach takes Cece for their romantic rendezvous… and how Schmidt reacts to the news that his ex might be moving on with his buddy.

The weeks since New Girl‘s Schmidt (Max Greenfield) and Cece (Hannah Simone) broke up have not been kind. When we pick back up in the Halloween-themed episode, “Keaton,” the former fat kid is mainlining mayonnaise, and the despondent model looks like Friends‘ Dirty Girl Cheryl has taken over her apartment.
Still basking in their coupled-up bliss, Jess (Zooey Deschanel) and Nick (Jake Johnson) decide to cheer up their pals with a costume party and… Michael Keaton? So how exactly does the titular Batman star get roped into the loftmates’ shenanigans? And how will bitter exes Schmidt and Cece react when they see each other for the first time since their split? Find out the exclusive clip below. READ FULL STORY
Tonight’s New Girl is technically entitled “Nerd,” but Schmidt’s subplot should probably be called “Playa.” The show’s resident douchebag (Max Greenfield) has been juggling two ladies since the season 2 finale and, as we saw in last week’s premiere, he’s not ready to give either of them their walking papers. Of course, shenanigans ensue, including Schmidt getting roped into inviting both Cece (Hannah Simone) and Elizabeth (awesome-speech-giving Emmy winner Merritt Wever) to an upcoming office party — you know, because those things aren’t awkward enough.
Will Schmidt finally crack under the pressure, or will he keep his love triangle going yet another week? Watch the exclusive First Look below for clues…

As New Girl‘s third season kicks off, all the loftmates are involved in passionate affairs: Jess (Zooey Deschanel) and Nick (Jake Johnson) with each other, Schmidt (Max Greenfield) with both Cece (Hannah Simone) and Elizabeth (Merritt Wever), and Winston (Lamorne Morris) with… a puzzle.
A new behind-the-scenes video shows the whole gang picking up “exactly where [the finale] left off,” as Deschanel teases. Roomfriends Nick and Jess have driven into the night — and off to Mexico, where their budding courtship is, predictably, not all wine and roses. As resort-crashing and scavenged umbrella cocktails? New Girl‘s got you covered!
Meanwhile, Schmidt isn’t exactly happy about his roommates’ new relationship, but he’s got bigger fish to fry since he still can’t make a decision between his two big-love exes. Rounding things out, Winston has gotten really into jigsaw puzzles — like, composing-an-impromptu-puzzling-theme-song-into-them. Nice to know the blood loss from that badger bite isn’t affecting his mental acuity.
Check out the exclusive video below to hear Winston’s original composition, see several steamy Jess-Nick kisses, and get the inside scoop from the cast members themselves.
Oh, loftmates, we’ve missed you so! Fox rolls out its new key art for New Girl‘s third season tomorrow, and the bright-and-bubbly image is emblazoned with the cheeky slogan, “Friends don’t let friends do friends.” That would be in reference, of course, to the burgeoning romance between Jess (Zooey Deschanel) and Nick (Jake Johnson). Perhaps the new couple’s friends are still adjusting, but we couldn’t be happier to find out where the “roomfriends”‘ relationship will lead.
The key art is fun, eye-popping, and chock full o’ personality (hey there, Nick’s turtle face!), hinting at the dynamics set to play out this fall. Winston (Lamorne Morris) looks particularly happy… perhaps he’s still loopy on meds after being mauled by Bucky the Badger? Cece (Hannah Simone) doesn’t seem too upset that Schmidt (Max Greenfield) literally ran away from her after she called off her wedding on his account — though they do appear to be keeping their distance.
That’s all speculation, of course. What we can tell you for sure, though, is what went down at the cast’s recent photo shoot. Scored to Cut One & Bamyasi’s “Always Looked So Blue,” this exclusive behind-the-scenes video is worth watching if only for a glimpse of Johnson leaning in to steal a kiss from his onscreen sweetie.

After two seasons playing sharp-tongued, side-eye-slinging model Cece on New Girl, Hannah Simone has been a snarky foil for best friend Jess (Zooey Deschanel). But as Jess got saucy planning Cece’s sudden bachelorette party last night, Cece softened up. Weeks away from an arranged marriage to her perfect-on-paper Indian fiancé Shivrang (Satya Bhabha), Cece copped to insecurities about her engagement that will impact the rest of the season — and maybe even gave shippers a glint of hope that the loft’s lovable douchebag Schmidt (Max Greenfield) still has a shot with his model love.
In a recent chat with EW, Simone broke down the cases for (and against) Shiv and Schmidt, shared her reaction to finally finding out Cece’s decision, and discussed a sexy new campaign she’s joined (Schmidt would definitely approve). READ FULL STORY
