Brace yourselves, fans of Ms. Jessica Day (Zooey Deschanel): TV’s most adorkable gal is in for one helluva shock when New Girl Season 2 premieres Tuesday, September 25.

According to showrunner Liz Meriwether, Jess is going to lose her job at the beginning of the hit sitcom’s sophomore season. Yes, you read that right: School’s out for Ms. Day!

Budget cuts are to blame, naturally, but what comes next for her is anyone’s guess. Liz tells Entertainment Weekly, “I think we’re going to take our time and figure out what she wants and let her have a moment of questioning who she is, why she’s a teacher, and if that’s really what she wants to do.”

So far we know of at least three things in Jess’s future: a bad boy “f**k buddy” in the form of Bent hottie David Walton, a party for the removal of Schmidt’s (Max Greenfield) penis cast, and a visit from her parents (yes!).

Beyond that, the world is Jess’s oyster.
