Jess will have some fierce competition when New Girl returns for its fourth season.

As the group assembles for the final wedding of the summer season, the guys encourage Jess to find a wedding guest to sleep with and she ends up setting her sights on Veep’s Reid Scott—but so does a sexy scientist played by Jessica Biel.

“Jess decides to go after the best man and she’s nervous about it because he’s the wedding celebrity,” executive producer Liz Meriwether tells EW. “She’s, in her weird way, doing pretty well with him and then Jessica Biel comes on the scene and starts to also hit on him. It’s the two of them competing over this guy and Jess doesn’t have a lot of moves.”

Will Jess succeed? Find out when New Girl returns Sept. 16 at 9 p.m. on Fox.
