At the end of the first season of "New Girl," Jess and the crew saved poor Nick from making the worst mistake of his life by leaving the roomies' cozy L.A. pad to move in with his pretty terrible girlfriend. And, while much of season one teased that something romantic could eventually happen between Nick and Jess, the folks behind the characters, Jake Johnson and Zooey Deschanel, say that it might be a while before they end up together.
"I’ll tell you, I think Jess got Nick back [when they were in the desert]. She gave him the talk. I think it meant something to him and that SOB wasn’t ready to leave," Jake told MTV News, before joking that he often gets asked about the potential for Nick and Jess."Well, you know, we haven’t been asked that so [laughs]... I think that something eventually is going to happen, but they’re not telling us, and I’ll be honest, I don’t think they know."
Zooey seemed open to the idea of having a kissing scene with Jake when that time should come, mostly because she’s open to any and all scenes involving Nick and Jess and their are-they-or-aren’t-they chemistry.
"We like doing scenes together, so our main wish is that we get to do scenes together whether that’s romantic scenes or just hilarious scenes, hilarity."
The new season of "New Girl" kicks off tonight on Fox with two new episodes.
