Watch Nick meet Jess' new conquest on 'New Girl'

In the wake of their cruise ship breakup during the season 3 finale, it’s been inevitable that Jess (Zooey Deschanel) and Nick (Jake Johnson) would eventually find loveor at least lustback on land, and the latest episode shows our New Girl closer to bagging a new man than ever before.

After Jess’ pitiful attempt at a wedding hookup and Nick’s not-so-smooth flirting over sponge hatred (sex doesn’t count if we didn’t see it, show!), Jess finds an incredibly handsome new prospect played by The Hunger Games: Catching Fire star Alan Ritchson. But, as an episode called “Micro” suggests, there’s just one small thing he can’t Gloss over…

Find out below why Jess gets shy around this new guy, and how Nick reacts to his ex on the prowl. READ FULL STORY

'New Girl' sneak peek: Nick gets stoned, Jess tries online dating

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' boss teases season full of sex

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:

'New Girl': Zooey Deschanel talks Tommy Hilfiger fashion collaboration, drops season 3 finale hints

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': Adam Brody on playing one of Jess' 'Exes' -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

Fresh off the steam of New Girl‘s most-watched ever post-Super Bowl episode featuring Prince, the show is back with another high-profile guest star. In addition to the always welcome return of Nick’s former live-in love Caroline (Mary Elizabeth Ellis), “Exes” also introduces Jess’ old beau Berkley (Adam Brody).

In an exclusive First Look at tonight’s installment, the O.G. O.C. geek crush talks about his hippie-dippie stay-at-home dad character, who at first appears to have remained besties with Jess (watch out for granolicious inside jokes!). But, as much as Brody himself had an easy time filming with stars Zooey Deschanel and Jake Johnson, the end of the clip shows a touch of friction that implies things don’t quite go according to the adorkable plan.

'New Girl' is back, beach! -- EXCLUSIVE FIRST LOOK VIDEO

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.
