Are Jess and Russell getting back together? TVLine reports Dermot Mulroney will return for the FOX series’ seventh and final season.
Mulroney first appeared as Russell, Jess’ (Zooey Deschanel) beau, in season one of the ensemble comedy. The cast also includes Jake Johnson, Max Greenfield, Lamorne Morris, and Hannah Simone.
According to TVLine, Mulroney will reprise the role of Russell for New Girl‘s final season. But fans don’t need to worry. He and Jess are not getting back together. In fact, the new season will jump ahead four years, with Jess and Nick (Johnson) in a committed relationship.
Season seven of New Girl is slated to debut on FOX in early 2018.
