A crossover episode with Brooklyn Nine Nine following an explosive New Girl season 6 episode 1 promise a great season for the FOX series and Jess’ character is having a busy love life on the show’s sixth installment.
Fans are hopeful that Jess (Zooey Deschanel) and Nick (Jake Johnson) might finally be happening in New Girl season 6 episode 1 when after season 5’s finale, when series creator Liz Meriwether, revealed that Regan (Megan Fox) will not be in the way of the two frustrated lovers on season 6.
“Next year, the door is definitely open, and Jess is probably standing in the doorway,” confirms Meriwether.
New Girl season 6 episode 1, entitled House Hunt which aired last September 20, shows Jess’ struggle to get Nick out of her mind when he returns from his summer at New Orleans.
And while their love story is turning out to be a bit slow, episode 4 presents a not-so-permanent possible love interest in the character of Detective Jake Peralta (Andy Samberg) during the New Girl- Brooklyn Nine Nine crossover episode.
New Girl- Brooklyn Nine Nine crossover starts Tuesday, Oct. 11 at 8/7c on Brooklyn Nine-Nine and New Girl at 8:30/7:30c.
ET shares an interview about the upcoming episodes, where Samberg also explains how the crossover came to fruition. The actor says “So the PR department at Fox got together and they said, ‘Hey! These shows aren’t new anymore. How are we going to shake up this whole action?’ And they were like, ‘What if we took this show and this show and we just smushed ’em together?’ And then they were like, ‘Pop the champagne, gang, because we did it again!'”
Deschanel explains too that the cast of New Girl visits New York to support Schmidt (Max Greenfield), who is getting an award from his high school. Turns out that he was not really getting an award but the school is only hitting him up for money, Schmidt goes crazy. Jess tries to help by volunteering to buy soup from his favorite deli.
Coincidentally, Detective Jake has a perpetrator to catch and stopped Jess to ask for her car. Events lead to Jake and Jess on a car chase before Jake crashes her car. Smooth!
But during the car chase, there is an evident chemistry between the two stars that we can’t help but assume a love story on the way.
