New Girl will be back for season 2 in a fortnight and to celebrate we have promo photos from the season premiere (for part two head here). We will see Schmidt (Max Greenfield) throw himself a party for an event only he would find worthy of a party this huge (no pun intended) and Jess (Zooey Deschanel) receives some life changing news.
So where did we leave the gang at the end of season 1? Nick (Jake Johnson) almost moved out of the loft to live with Caroline (Mary Elizabeth Ellis); an idea that was so terrible that it took a night in the desert with his friends to realize what a big mistake he was making. The break-up between Nick and Caroline wasn’t the only relationship that ended in the finale as Schmidt ‘White Fanged” Cece (Hannah Simone) after a moment of jealousy caused. Winston (Lamorne Morris) is in a happy place as he now has a job and a relationship that are both going well and despite her recent break-up with Russell (Dermot Mulroney) Jess also ended the season in good spirits.
Sadly for Jess season 2 will start with an upsetting change as she is made redundant from her teaching job. Being a teacher is a big part of who Jess is and so this will hit her hard as she tries to figure out what to do with her life. The first post-teaching job that Jess will tackle is in the season premiere and we will see her try her hand as a shot girl at Schmidt’s penis cast removal party (I’m pretty sure the douchebag jar will be overflowing after this episode). She will be accompanied by guest star Parker Posey (who took over the role that Leslie Mann was originally slated for) and as you can see from the promo photos she finds a use for her tiny hat. Will Jess make a successful shot girl? Nick’s bartending skills will also feature and his speciality drinks will have an interesting influence on Winston.
