The first episode back is “Stuck in the Bar,” airing on Tuesday, Jan. 7 seems to involve quite a few flashbacks. Back in the day, Winston (Lamorne Morris), for example, had a rather odd hairstyle.
Schmidt (Max Greenfield), meanwhile, was a candy-striper.
He also sold Christmas trees … To a rabbi?
All of this likely comes up after Jess (Zooey Deschanel) has to share a classroom with another teacher (guest star Brian Posehn) and might leave her job.
On Jan. 14, the “TBD” episode finds Jess and Nick (Jake Johnson) sharing a bed. At least that seems set.
They’re still together a week later when it’s time to celebrate Jess’ “Birthday.”
Even if they go to the wrong party …
Does the show’s new poster sum all of this up?
The new episodes, beginning Tuesday, Jan. 7 at 9 p.m. will answer that question.
