New Girl, Brooklyn Nine-Nine Crossover: Jess Is In the (Station) House

The New Girl and Brooklyn Nine-Nine worlds are about to collide… over a cup of soup?

Next Tuesday’s two-part Fox comedy crossover event, an exclusive sneak peek of which can be found above, finds Jess & Co. venturing to New York to watch Schmidt get honored by his high school. As exec producer and co-showrunner Brett Baer previews, some unplanned “fun ensues” when Jess is tasked with “retrieving soup from Schmidt’s favorite deli, which happens to be right where the [99th Precinct] is. So Jess is on her way to get this soup and she has a run-in with various members of the Brooklyn gang.”

It’s not clear what exactly lands Jess in the Nine-Nine, but Baer reveals that the L.A. native has a rocky history with the city that never sleeps. “Jess has always had a rough go of it in New York,” the EP explains. “She’s been there once before and the city kind of beat up on her a little bit. But she is vowing to, no matter what happens, make sure that Schmidt has an amazing trip.”

The two-part crossover, which also marks the return of Nora Dunn as Schmidt’s mom, airs Tuesday, Oct. 11 on Fox.

    Jess isn’t an LA native; she’s originally from Portland.

    Very much looking forward to this!

    Why?

    For some reason that actress from New Girl really annoys me. She’s cute, I am sure she is a wonderful person, but I do not enjoy her acting

    So is this gonna be a throwaway tie in or something I’ll actually need to watch as it’ll have “plot”?
    Love Nine-Nine, but not a fan of New Girl so I’d rather skip this if it doesn’t play into any actual plot for the season.

      While I like both shows, I do share your sentiment. I always hated stories that begin on one show, and end on another. (Plus, that really louses things up in syndication, where the shows will NOT run back-to-back.)
