‘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!”
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.
January can’t get here fast enough.
New Girl Season 5 premieres Tuesday, January 5 at 8 p.m. ET on FOX.
