New Girl is getting adding a new face to the family! Jess is getting a sister. No, it’s not Emily Deschanel but it’s still pretty cool. Linda Cardellini has been tapped to play the role of Jess’s sister. Appearing throughout season 3, the role will be recurring. Linda will be playing “Abby”, the wild child sister to Jess.
New Girl will return with new episodes on January 7th on FOX.
What will be bringing Abby to town? Will she be appearing to spend the holidays with her sister? Will they shop for their parents? Bonding over cheap mothers rings, fruitcakes, and other holiday stocking stuffers could be hilarious.
Either way, Abby being described as a “wild child” is sure to have the duo butting heads.
