Actresses Angela Kinsey and Eva Amurri have officially joined the cast of New Girl Season 3 as guest stars, and according to TV Guide, the gals will be causing plenty of trouble for Jess (Zooey Deschanel) and Schmidt (Max Greenfield) respectively.
Per TV Guide, former Office star Kinsey will be playing a “cool” teacher who works at Jess’ school and isn’t too fond of the quirky new substitute. As Executive Producer Liz Meriwether explains, kind-hearted Jess is having trouble navigating the politics of her new teaching gig, and several “mean girls” are making it even harder for her.
“There's some mean girl teachers that don't like her there, and she's trying to find her place at the new school and see if she can turn it into a permanent position,” she says.
And what about Schmidt?
Meriwether says the lovably eccentric roommate will have a complicated love life at the start of Season 3, which begins right after he ran away from both Cece (Hannah Simone) and Elizabeth (Merritt Wever.)
Although Elizabeth will be back for several episodes in Season 3, Amurri will reprise her role as Beth from Season 2 and she will “cause trouble” for co-worker Schmidt in the romance department when she realizes that he’s potentially juggling both Cece and Elizabeth.
“It's a choice that he's still struggling with in the premiere. He genuinely cares about both women and he's just so confused about what to do. He's forced to take desperate measures to figure it out. He potentially does some things that are not good,” Meriwether teases.
Yikes. Do you prefer Schmidt with Cece or Elizabeth? Weigh in below!
