"In the season five premiere, Schmidt and Cece are engaged, so they have to start planning their wedding," Star Hannah Simone dishes in our first look video above.
There's only one huge problem: "Cece hadn't told her Mom that she's engaged to the 'slim, hip ghost of Tom Cruise,'" Simone confesses.
Anna George returns in the first episode back to reprise her role as Cece's mom, and let's just say she's less than enthused to meet her daughter's newest fiancé. "I find Schmidt truly appalling as a potential candidate for my daughter," George says bluntly. Yikes!
Season five of New Girl premieres Tuesday, Jan. 5 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Fox.
