New Girl returns with a new season tonight in which — oddly — everything and nothing has changed.
The big changes: Nick and Jess will be a couple this season, a move that’s met with mixed reactions from others in the loft. The big non-changes? We’re in for fun adventures, great guest stars and general hilarity. For the details, courtesy of star Zooey Deschanel and exec producer Liz Meriwether, read on…

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.
Tonight’s episode of Entertainment Weekly and Sundance Channel’s series The Writer’s Room sits down with New Girl creator Liz Meriwether, star Jake Johnson, and executive producers Brett Baer and Dave Finkel.
Talking about the first kiss between Nick (Johnson) and Jess (Zooey Deschanel) in Jan. 29 episode, “Cooler,” Meriwether says, “We wanted it to be messy,” and Johnson himself admits that he was surprised the two characters’ showmance heated up as quickly as it did. But which of the loftmates was originally slated to kiss Jess at the end of a drunken night of True American? Find out in the video below! READ FULL STORY
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.

Looks like that love triangle will continue to take shape this fall on New Girl: Merritt Wever is returning to the Fox comedy for at least two episodes early in the season, EW has learned. The twice-Emmy nominated actress from Nurse Jackie will reprise her role in the season premiere as Elizabeth, Schmidt’s college girlfriend with whom he rekindled a romance late in season 2. In the wedding-day finale, Cece (Hannah Simone) revealed to Schmidt (Max Greenfield) that she was interested in getting back together with him, prompting Schmidt to literally run away from making a decision between the two women.

In a very sad case of life imitating art, actor Dennis Farina died Monday at age 69 just months after his New Girl character was laid to rest on TV.
In the March 26 episode “Chicago,” Nick Miller (Jake Johnson) and his roommates head to Nick’s hometown for the funeral of Walt Miller (Farina). Johnson clearly had a soft spot for his TV dad, sending this statement to EW on Monday:

Who’s that girl? It’s Jess — available exclusively on Netflix.
The streaming service announced today that it has signed a multi-year deal with Twentieth Century Fox Television to air full seasons of the comedy hit. New Girl‘s entire first season, which aired originally between September 2011 and May 2012, is available to watch instantly as of today; Netflix will add subsequent seasons after they’re broadcast on Fox.

A source confirms that the full current season of New Girl will no longer be available to stream on Hulu, as it has been in the past. Instead, only the most recently aired five episodes from the comedy’s current season will be available on Netflix’s rival site; subscribers and authenticated users can watch these episodes the day after they air on Fox, while everyone else can view them eight days after air. Five episodes from previous seasons of New Girl will be available on Hulu as well.

‘Veronica Mars’ movie: Max Greenfield confirms Deputy Leo’s return — VIDEO
What if Zooey Deschanel was Daenerys Stormborn? New ‘Game of Thrones’ parody dares to dream
Rejoice, Marshmallows: Deputy Leo is back!
Emmy-nominated New Girl star Max Greenfield revealed during a Google Hangout with Gold Derby on Tuesday that he plans to reprise his old Veronica Mars role for Rob Thomas’ upcoming crowd-funded movie. Greenfield played Leo, a sheriff’s deputy and a onetime love interest for Kristen Bell’s Veronica, in 11 episodes of the original series, appearing infrequently throughout all three seasons.
“I will be there — so will Deputy Leo,” Greenfield said with a grin. “It’s gonna be like a fun reunion. You wanna go in there and do some really solid work because obviously, people put up their own money to see this. I think everybody who’s playing a part in this thing has a responsibility, which is fun and exciting.”

Who’s that girl? It’s Swift!
For New Girl‘s relationship-centric May 14 finale, who better to cameo as a wedding guest than Taylor Swift (right, with star Zooey Deschanel) — the music megastar who wrote the (song)book on love, break-ups, and everything in between? Swift cameos as a woman named Elaine. Though showrunner Liz Meriwether remains coy about what exactly brings Elaine to the nuptials of Cece (Hannah Simone) and Shivrang (Satya Bhabha), she admits the casting was no coincidence. “I’m a huge fan of hers,” she says. “I was fully geeking out about meeting [Taylor]. I didn’t go to meet her right away because I kind of had to compose myself — there’s a 14-year-old girl inside of me.” Apparently the feeling was mutual, Meriwether recalls: “She was quoting lines to us from the show. It was a really exciting night.” READ FULL STORY
