Where you all for the Cece and Schmidt love to be reunited in “New Girl?” Or did you think Schmidt had moved on by moving backwards into the arms of his college girlfriend? Whichever side you were on, it appears that the love triangle isn’t over just because Cece admitted she still loved him. EW has reported that his college girlfriend, Elizabeth, played by Merritt Wever will be returning for at least two episodes of the upcoming third season.
Wever, the twice-Emmy nominated actress from “Nurse Jackie” will reprise her role as the girlfriend who rekindled a relationship with our favorite playboy with a heart of gold. This seemingly means there is more tension to come following the events of the season 2 finale when Cece, played by Hannah Simone, revealed to Schmidt, played by Max Greenfield, that she was interested in getting back together with him. Safe to say, Schmidt does not handle the admission very well and literally runs away from both women.
“New Girl” also stars Zooey Deschanel, Jake Johnson, and Lamorne Morris.
The third season of the Fox series will premiere on Sept. 17.
