New Girl, Zooey Deschanel, Linda Cardellini


"Best news ever. It's so, so, so, so, so, so, so good."

Yeah, we're pretty sure repeating the word "so" seven times is the opposite of good, which is exactly what fans can expect from Jess' (Zooey Deschanel) sister when she blows into the loft on New Girl this Tuesday. 

That's right, we're finally meeting Jess' "bad girl big sister" Abby, played by Linda Cardellini, who describes her character as "the direct opposite" of our adorkable heroine. 

We've got an exclusive sneak peek at the all-new episode of Fox's hit sitcom, which included scoop from Cardellini and the cast on Abby's drama-filled debut...

"She is amazing and so funny," Hannah Simone gushes of Cardellini. "And such a bad girl." 

Cue scene of Abby hitting on Coach (Damon Wayans Jr.), calling him "Hot Cocoa." Oh, and we first meet Abby as she's starting a fight in jail. 

"I don't really do anything quietly," Cardellini explains. "She's a little bit loud and proud of it." And the Mad Men star also reveals her favorite scene, which is a fight between Abby and Jess that you can watch in all its hilarious glory in our exclusive clip above. 

In the same episode, Jamie Lee Curtis will return as Jess and Abby's mother, and Jon Lovitz and Jessica Chaffin will also guest star.

Plus, Schmidt (Max Greenfield) will crash a Bar Mitzvah, along with his wingman Nick (Jake Johnson) in an attempt to try and date his rabbi's daughter, while Coach and Cece (Simone) may finally address that makeout session that went down a few weeks ago. 

New Girl airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. on Fox.
