/ UPDATE: New Girl creator, Liz Meriwether spoiled to TV Guide a little bit more about Linda Cardellini’s upcoming guest stint as Jess’ “crazy” sister, Abby:
“Abby is a total mess and basically a low-level criminal,” executive producer Liz Meriwether tells me. “Jess has to get her out of jail. It was fun to shoot a scene in a women’s prison because I could pretend I was on Orange Is the New Black for a second.”
When we caught up with the lovely Zooey Deschanel, the adorkable actress revealed some brand-new information about the highly anticipated debut of Jess’ sister. “We’re going to meet Jess’ sister played by Linda Cardalini,” Deschanel said. “She’s Jess’s opposite. She’s like a wild, crazy and rebellious girl.” But for all those at home who are doubting the extreme level of pyshco that Jess’ older sis will bring to the mix, Zooey has a warning for you: “No, seriously. She’s totally crazy.”
How do you think the guys will take to this “wild, crazy, and rebellious” relative of Jess?
