Absence truly does make the heart grow fonder, and that’s why we were extra excited to sit down with Zooey Deschanel to discuss what’s happened so far on this season of New Girl. Catch up on the episodes you may have missed by streaming the show now, and set your DVR for FOX on Tuesdays at 8/7c for the latest episodes.
What’s happened so far on this season of New Girl?
Oh so much! I was on jury duty for several episodes and Megan Fox joined the cast in my absence. You’ll have to catch up to find out more!
You did a crossover episode with Megan Fox—how was it working with her?
Yes! Megan is awesome, and it was so much fun having her on the show. We always have great guests! So far this season we’ve had Julie Hagerty, Peter Gallagher, and the great Harry Winkler. John Cho also did an episode where he plays an attorney, and it was so funny. There’s also Lucy Punch, who is just so lovely. We’re always so lucky with our guest stars.
What’s life like on the New Girl set?
It’s pretty fun! We have such a great time, and we’ve worked together for 5 years now so it’s like one big family on set. We just did our 100th episode—it’s so nice to be part of a show that’s reached that milestone.
Are there any other FOX shows that you’d love to do a cross-over episode with?
I’m loving The Grinder! I think the show is so clever and would love to have them join us on New Girl for a spell. Also I wouldn’t hate to join the Scream Queens cast. Maybe I could play the house sister? I’m not ready to be the house mother, but sister I could handle.
