Jake Johnson and Zooey Deschanel got back to work on the upcoming season of New Girl at a beach in LA yesterday. Zooey showed off her midriff in a torn and tattered blue sari — which looked very much like the one she wore in the second season's finale — while Jake filmed a scene that involved him screaming and being escorted out of the ocean by burly policemen. Despite the dramatic storyline, Jake appeared to be happy to return to work this week, writing on Twitter, "New Girl Season 3 starts filming [on Monday]. Excited." Last week, we got a chance to chat with Jake at the TCA Summer Press Tour before he started working on the upcoming episode, and he revealed that Nick and Jess will "start the season dating." We'll have to wait until New Girl returns to the small screen on Sept. 17 to find out how this dramatic beach scene figures into Nick and Jess's new romantic life.
