New Girl Exclusive: Get a First Look at Season 2!

Get More: Exclusive, First Look

Although New Girl‘s second season is still (at least) a summer away, Fox is already giving us an exclusive first look at Zooey Deschanel and Co. hamming it up in some super-cute Season 2 key art. In response, TVLine is reading between the pixels with the obsessiveness of a CSI crew!

So, how can we break down (aka read way too much into) the shot below? Jess and Nick’s body language clearly indicates that they’re digging each other (right?), while Cece’s seems to be saying that she’s still irked with Schmidt for White Fanging her, but she’s considering giving him another chance. And Winston? He’s still just loving life.

What do you think? How did we do? Hit the comments with your thoughts and theories on the new New Girl photo!

  • Love it! Love that they made CeCe and regular :)))

    • CeCe was always a main cast member she just doesnt appear in every episode, usually because she doesnt live with them making it difficult to incorporate her into stories

      • “[CeCe] doesnt live with them making it difficult to incorporate her into stories”… what? In the 3 million TV shows that have ever aired, there have been plenty of characters who don’t live together on the same show. That comment doesn’t even make sense for a nanosecond.

        • Actually the original comment does make sense since the premise of the show is about four people who live together so to incorporate another person into their day to day lives that happen primarily in the same apartment is tricky. Most other shows aren’t about one apartment.

        • She has ALWAYS been credited as a main character, but the earlier episodes didn’t always feature her. And it does make sense. Frasier had the same problem with the Roz character because she wasn’t part of the family. If you’re a Glee fan, then think of Terri. She wasn’t at the school, so there was no organic way to keep her around.

    • I can’t wait for season 2! I love this show and I really hope Jess&Nick get together now, since I feel like they are not really paying much atention to really making them a couple, or maybe they’re just leaving it for other seasons..

      • next season the writer said the 2 characters will have to acknowledge the chemistry they have because their living together so its impossible not to. she also said that doesn’t mean it will end the way the fans want it to! but they will in season to acknowledge their feelings for each other i just really hope they get together instead of drifting apart!!!

  • Ahh Winston’s pink pants. Love it.

  • Winston – Love the pink jeans and the beautiful smile!!! I think it’s about time for Nick and Jess – so cute together – personalities blend well – who could think of giving up the Schmidt??!

    Comment by Kathleen – May 11, 2012 10:36 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • (nick and jess part) EXACTLY!! i mean it took long enough! i just hope they get together and stay together and not end in heartbreak!

  • Jess/Schmidt could happen. Which triggers Nick AND Cece to be jealous.

    Comment by Carl Dayandante (@drmcmuffin) – May 11, 2012 10:37 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Jess/schmidt will never happen cos it would hurt too many people and this is no soap opera.
      CeCe obviously loves Schmidt.
      Nick/Jess will happen some day but I hope not too soon. I like how they played it so far.
      Really one of my faves shows atm.

      Comment by Deena – May 11, 2012 10:42 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • Nick and Jess all the way. I wouldn’t watch a soap opera type of a triangle/square thing!

        Comment by Amy – May 11, 2012 07:50 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
        • I agree. :’) Nick and Jess look amazing together. And it’s so clear, they both have feelings for each other.

          Comment by Seven – June 17, 2012 08:10 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • I agree! I like them to be together, but not at the second season, nor third or fourth. Maybe 5th seasons. I think Jess and Nick getting together so soon in the second season, will ruined the show. It’ll feel rushed… I like how they’re doing the now. Keep it up! I love the humors in this show.. and I wouldn’t want them to be changing anything too quick. This is BY FAR my favorite show .

        For some odd reason The New Girl reminds me a lot of FRIENDS, they all have this chemistry that works together. I love this cast and all the odd personality. THANKS! For bringing back those feelings and shows!

        Comment by mine – May 13, 2012 01:57 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
        • i totally agree with this! i absolutely love this show and i think its because it reminds me so much of friends, all the character are just so good together! keep up the good work, this show rocks my world!

          Comment by beckylr – May 17, 2012 12:08 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
        • I know! Jess is like a more bubbly, chirpy version of Phoebe! Nick reminds me of Chandler with all the negativity and sarcastic comments. It’s about time some good shows followed up the legend of a series that FRIENDS was.

          • people ALWAYS compare good shows to friends and friends was amazing!!! but to compare those characters isn’t right because jess and phoebe are sooooo different and nick has lots of different sides…. and just nooooo don’t compare them they are in n way the same!!! (sorry) :)

            Comment by izzybelle – August 2, 2012 04:45 PM PDT  
    • ha ha ha love that to happen and jess has considered it (valentines day). sorry but this year the writers have confirmed jess and nick WILL acknowledge their connection!

      Comment by izzybelle – August 2, 2012 04:50 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • WHAT?!?!? no way will it happen Schmidt had to put $50 in the dochebag jar for even trying to kiss jess. If it was going to happen in the show then would have been the time. It’s like in friends where Joey and Rachel date, it never worked out because of ross. Nick is jess’ lobster.

  • You’re better at reading things into the picture than I am. I just see what’s supposed to be a bunch of friends in a candid shot. It makes me happy, though. The last scene of this week’s season finale (with the roomies dancing individually to AC/DC’s You Shook Me All Night Long) was a great TV moment.

    Comment by TV Gord – May 11, 2012 10:40 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • What irks me about that image is how obviously photoshopped it is. They look like they were all shot separately and copy-and-pasted onto a background. They don’t even look like they’re touching the ground! And Zooey’s head and body don’t even look like they’re from the same original image (not to mention the Angelina tendencies of her right leg…). Note to Fox: they are all really attractive people to begin with! You do not need to edit the living daylights out of them!

    Comment by marinysha – May 11, 2012 10:47 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • I love this show but I really can’t seem to care about Winston… I’m afraid he’s the “Nate” (Gossip Girl) of NG… it’s like he’s a permanent cast member but the show runners have a hard time finding him interesting story lines, I mean that thing with his new boss was just so boring and so is his relationship with Chelsea (that’s her name right?) they should definitely try to integrate him more with the group or at least get him story lines that don’t make people wish they weren’t watching live so they could fast forward.

    Comment by Allysa Johnson – May 11, 2012 11:18 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • This show really grew on me, and the finale was terrific. And I actually thought Winston brought the funny big time with his rant. Liz Meriwether also explained that Winston was not fleshed out because a lot of scripts were already written for Coach and had to be reworked. She is hoping to flesh him out better in the new season. Oh, and both CeCe/Schmidt and Nick/Jess have awesome chemistry, but I hope the show lets it burn – at least for Nick/Jess – for a while!

  • I think that they all blend together well. I have laughed at every episode but it seems like the last couple of season 1 were way funnier. I love Nick’s attitude, and Jess’s personality (I just love Zooey tho) :). I hope that the wondering of what is going to happen between them keeps going instead of just coming out with it. This is a wonderful show! I make sure that I have Tuesday nights off.

  • Cece looks a little irritated with Jess…Could that be possible? Is it possible Jess takes control of the loft? Can’t wait for the storyline to develop…Thanks Liz! Let’s try not to emasculate Nick too much though, ok? I mean changing his mind the way he did with Caroline just wasn’t ….right…

  • Jess and Cece’s bangs are the same in this picture. Too twinners for me. But I adore this show.

    Comment by ambrwaves – May 11, 2012 03:57 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • I feel like Nick and Jess somewhat mimic certain behaviors that “Ross” and “Rachel” from “F.R.I.E.N.D.S” I feel that at the end of the series they will be together but on and off through out the entire scheme of things. Where Schmidt and Cece are more like “Monica” and “Chandler” and will be together because it is comfortable and just fits.

    Comment by colland – May 11, 2012 04:31 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • I don’t see that at all! At least not with Cece and Schmidt, their personalities are just so different from Monica and Chandler. And Nick and Jess… Well, we’ll see about that, I guess that could become sort of a Ross-and-Rachel-relationship (with the fights and the breakups and the reconciliations :D). If so, we at least know that it will never get boring!! I love this show!

      Comment by rumblerooooar – May 12, 2012 04:35 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • I’ve actually had the same thought when it comes to Cece/Schmidt or even Schmidt being a combo of Monica/Chandler. The douchy awesome, jokester and OCD genius in the kitchen. Like Monica/Chandler had a kid and it grew up to be Schmidt. I totally see it lol.

  • Ya Schmidt and Cece are GREAT! But honestly, if a guy sleeps with your best friend and THEN breaks up with YOU! Your pretty much letting go of all self respect to go right back to him… SO since I LOVE Cece, I really hope the writers make a story line out of this drama..

  • I’m so excited, I was so sad when the first season ended. I’m like, this is the best sitcom I have seen in a really long time. It’s so refreshing, Jess was made for Zooey. I could possibly see the Nick/Jess relationship, but not yet!! The show just started and I hate when they group of the main characters with each other so soon. They need to develop more!!! Winston is really hilarious and I love his character…those pink pants are really cute, I totally want a pair. Does anyone know where I can find them?

    Schmidt and Cece. I LOVE them together, especially Schmidt he is really incredibly funny and cute and I just love it.

    I can’t wait, I need an exact date and time, I’m totally gonna hooked to the second season just like I was for the first.

  • cece is annoyed that she is falling for shmit because jess seems closer to shmit than she is (in the pic), and therefore could damage jess and shmits crazy friendship. also the connection between nick and jess conveys an obvious want for each other however i feel there closeness and good friendship will deny a proper relationship…well one that nick can enjoy!!!
