‘Saved By the Bell’ Alum Elizabeth Berkley Lauren Joins ‘New Girl’ Season 5


Guys, guys, we don’t know if you’ve realized, but New Girl will finally be back on TV in less than a month. Fox has released the sitcom’s first full Season 5 trailer and it’s already got us saying, “Hashtag excitement!”

There’s endless awkward Nick Miller moments, Saturday Night Live stars in Zooey Deschanel cosplay, and news that a Saved By the Bell alum is scheduled to guest star.

Although she’s not in the awesome clip, Elizabeth Berkley Lauren will drop by the comedy this March, E! News reports. Jessie Spano’s real-life counterpart will play Becky Cavatappi, the new principal at Jess’s middle school.

Since Coolidge’s former principal popped up so much in previous seasons, lets hope this leaves the door wide open for the blonde Bayside alum, 43, to appear more than once.

The other two moments getting us excited for Season 5 are CeCe and Schmidt’s insane wedding — including the bride’s wizard-seducing dress — and Fred Armisen dressed up as the titular New Girl for whatever amazing reason.
