New Girl season 4 is set to premiere on Tuesday, September 16 on FOX.

The show will start at 9 p.m. EDT.

The synopsis for the first episode has been released, revealing that Jessica Biel will guest star.

“At the last wedding of the summer, the gang makes a pact: Each of them will get lucky by night’s end. Jess sets her sights on the best man (guest star Reid Scott), who also has caught the eye of a beautiful scientist (guest star Biel),” it says.

“Meanwhile, Schmidt and Nick get an indecent proposal; Winston recovers from his police academy training; and Coach panics when he realizes he already has hooked up with every woman at the party.”

Executive producer Brett Baer told TVLine that Biel’s character “has pretty good game.”

“She’s a genius… and she looks a lot like Jessica Biel,” he said.

As for Nick, he’s “back to trying to get “the low-hanging fruit,” executive producer Finkel said.

“He’s comfortable where he is. He’s happy,” he added.

CarterMatt notes that the new season should look to regain momentum.

“To us, season 3 deflated the tires in many ways from what was a very good first two seasons. The Nick and Jess relationship for some reason didn’t have that same spark when the two characters were together. We ultimately saw that the two were changing too much to be with each, and maybe that is what also turned us off on the two. Also, it took a little while for the Coach era to start paying dividends, which is funny because that was, like the Nick / Jess relationship, an idea that looked good on paper,” it said.

“Based on the preview for Tuesday’s season 4 premiere below, though, it does look like the show is on its way to get its mojo back, and that includes bringing some characters back to their roots.”
