First dates are always awkward, but it sounds like New Girl‘s Jess and Nick will take that notion to new and yikes-inducing levels.
“They can’t decide if it’s a date while they’re on the date, so there’s a lot of discussion about that,” New Girl creator Liz Meriweather tells TVLine of the upcoming installment. Adds star Zooey Deschanel with a laugh: “It’s very non-committal. Jess doesn’t even know she’s on a date” at first.
Add to that the fact that Fancyman himself, Dermot Mulroney, reappears during said pseudo date as Jess’ ex Russell, and you’ve got a whole lot of uncomfortable in one episode.
But that’s not all that’s ahead for the Girl and her gang. Watch as the cast — Jake Johnson, Max Greenfield, Lamorne Morris and Hannah Simone — and producers preview the rest of Season 2 in the video below, which includes scoop on Cece’s wedding plans, Winston’s evolved love life and Odette Annable‘s “gorgeous” guest spot.
