Boy, that Merritt Wever is having a good month.
Just a week after receiving her second Emmy nomination for her work on Showtime’s “Nurse Jackie,” various entertainment outlets are reporting that the Sarah Lawrence graduate will return to “New Girl” as Schmidt’s college girlfriend, Elizabeth, this fall.
Fans of the show will remember that last season ended with Schmidt – played by Dobbs Ferry native Max Greenfield – having to make a decision between Elizabeth and Cece, who had called off her wedding. Schmidt’s response? He literally made a run for it.
Looks like he won’t be running for long, though. Wever is back for at least one episode for Season 3, which kicks off Sept. 17.
