Spoiler Alert: We haven't yet posted our review of Fox's new fall series New Girl (starring Zooey Deschanel), but it is hands down the best new comedy (or drama) coming out this season!

You. Will. Love. It.

And we love this latest casting scoop. We have exclusively learned that a certain blonde bombshell—formerly of Supernatural, Melrose Place and Gossip Girl—is coming on New Girl.

If you watched all three of those shows, you probably already figured it out, right?

Katie Cassidy.

Gossip Girl's deeply conflicted "Juliet" of last season is shooting an episode this week on the new Fox comedy, playing a beautiful (of course) guest at a wedding reception that Jess (Deschanel) and the gang attend. Cassidy's character catches the eye of the cute guy you Veronica Mars fans know and love as Deputy Leo: Max Greenfield, who  plays Schmidt, one of Jess's roommates.

Cassidy is currently slated for one episode, but might be back for more.

Stand by for more reasons to love New Girl a little later on this week.
