Taking a modern look at friendship and romance, hit comedy New Girl breezes into its upcoming third season as it follows a group of five friends, their somewhat interconnected romantic exploits and their often hilariously misguided attempts to find their respective places in the world.

As the series concluded its second season, JESS (Emmy Award and Golden Globe nominee Zooey Deschanel) and NICK (Jake Johnson) ultimately gave into to their mutual attraction and decided to take their relationship to the next level. SCHMIDT (Emmy Award and Golden Globe nominee Max Greenfield) desperately tried to win back CECE (Hannah Simone), after breaking off his romance with her, and his efforts were rewarded, when Cece called off her wedding. Meanwhile, WINSTON (Lamorne Morris), seemingly the most grounded of the loftmates, slowly revealed cracks in his calm, cool and collected façade.

In the upcoming third season, Jess and Nick will go "all-in" on their relationship, but they will have to overcome some major obstacles, not the least of which just might be Schmidt. Following Cece's aborted wedding, Schmidt finds himself unable to choose between Cece and ELIZABETH (guest star Merritt Wever) and deals with it in the "Schmidt-iest" way possible. Also, Winston reconnects with COACH (guest star Damon Wayans, Jr.) bringing him back into the loft when one of the roommates moves out.
