“New Girl” will be premiering soon with its fifth season and there are a couple of things that the fans should expect to see. One of the major highlight of this season would be Schmidt and Cece’s engagement party and ultimately their journey towards the wedding. Like every couple faces some challenges during one of the most pleasant experiences of their lives, this couple too will be expecting some road bumps along the way. However one disappointing news is that the female lead of the show Jess aka Zooey Deschanel will be absent for the first few episodes.
According to Vine Report , Zooey who is still on maternity leave will be missing almost first four episodes of the series. This means that fans of the character will have to wait a bit longer to see their favorite girl back in the series. Creator of the show Elizabeth Meriweather spoke to The Hollywood Reporter about the first episode of the new season and stated that the title of the episode will be “No Girl” which indicates Zooey’s absence from the episode. Creator of the show sees it as a creative opportunity and stated that had it been the first or the second season, it would have been hard but with the series bringing its fifth season, it will give more opportunity to explore other characters. Talking about the first episode, she also said that it will be a guy’s episode.
Venture Capital Post also reported that the first episode of the new season will open with Schmidt and Cece’s engagement party. Max Greenfield who plays the role of Schmidt confirmed the news and also added that his on screen fiance Cece’s mother will be visiting them and might not be too sure about Schmidt. He also mentioned that whether or not she approves of Schmidt, the couple will be facing some road blocks just like every couple does. Hannah Simone who plays Cece also expressed excitement that this new angle will give more opportunity for character development.
It remains to be seen how the first episode’s response would be without their girl and what road blocks will the newly engaged couple face in their journey.
