Jessica Biel will be in the upcoming season of New Girl, and she won't be a new BFF for Zooey Deschanel's character Jess.

According to TV Guide, Biel's character, Kat, will be a scientist with the same taste in guys as Jess. There may be a catfight!

Kat is referred to as the "hottest scientist in the world" so this battle for the hottie at the wedding may not be a win for Jess.

We've been waiting for Jessica Biel to return to television. Her television debut was on 7th Heaven, when she played the rebellious Mary Camden. The successful series lasted for 11 seasons. "That show was fun. I was a basketball player who was going through all the stuff that a 14-year-old goes through, which is, as you know, completely psychotic," Biel told W Magazine in 2012.

As exciting as it is for Biel to return to television as the new girl, some fans wish that Jess (Zooey Deschanel) wasn't single at this wedding and are rooting for her to get back together with Nick (Jake Johnson).

"Admittedly, it's definitely fun to keep them apart for more," show creator Liz Meriwether told The Hollywood Reporter, when explaining the writing twists.

In the meantime, which Jess will get the guy? In real life, Biel's already got him. Biel married Justin Timberlake in 2012 and they were featured on People's cover, sharing their wedding moments at their Italian extravaganza. Biel described the wedding as "a total fantasy experience."

"New Girl" season 4 starts September 16.
