If you thought Cece’s (Hannah Simone) disaster-wedding from the season 2 finale was a sign that she and Max Greenfield’s Schmidt will be getting back together soon…well, let’s just say things probably aren’t going to be that simple.
Entertainment Weekly and TVLine have both confirmed that Schmidt’s girlfriend from college – also his girlfriend right now on the show – is set to recur in at least a couple more episodes in season 3.
Schmidt’s love triangle woes aren’t over just yet. Merritt Weaver is set to return to New Girl for at least two episodes this fall, EW.com reports, reprising her role as Elizabeth, Schmidt’s college-turned-present day girlfriend. Season 3 of New Girl bows Sept. 17.
So expect the lovely Merritt Wever to return as Elizabeth on New Girl in the fall for more Schmidt-Cece love triangle hilarity. Or tragedy, as the case may be. And expect season 3 of New Girl to start airing on FOX on Tuesday, September 17.
