New Girl fans were sent into a spin as Zooey Deschanel and Jake Johnson had the sweetest mini reunion.

The pair starred as love interests Jessica Day and Nick Miller in the iconic Fox comedy, which premiered in 2011 and ran for seven seasons.

Despite leaving our screens six years ago, the cast have clearly remained close as Zooey was on hand to support her former colleague at the LA premiere of his new Hulu film, Self Reliance, earlier this week.

The pair posed for pictures together at La Cita Bar, with Jake – who also served as co-writer and director on the flick – sharing a glimpse of their reunion on Instagram, as well as other photos from the bash.

‘Thank you to all who helped make Self Reliance and all who came out to support it,’ he captioned the post. ‘It really means a lot to me.

‘I hope you guys all enjoy watching it as much as I enjoyed making it. On @hulu now!’

Although the post was discussing Jake’s latest venture, fans couldn’t get enough of a picture showing his reunion with his former castmate, nestled in the star-studded carousel.

A follower yelled: ‘Nick n Jess! SCREAMINGGGGGG.’

‘Nick and Jess back together in 2024 makes me extremely happy. Love to see it,’ one agreed. ‘I missed you clowns. You two should do a movie together.’

‘Second picture, my parents,’ another penned.

‘Nick and Jess! Love u Jake and Zoe [sic],’ an Instagram follower cheered.

‘Nick [and] jess…. crying shaking,’ a commenter posted.

As many, many more flooded the replies with gifs from their time on New Girl.

The pair played roommates-turned-lovers in the sitcom for seven years, alongside Max Greenfield, Lamorne Morris, Hannah Simone and Damon Wayans Jr.

They kept us hooked with their will-they, won’t-they romance for the better part of a decade, before the series ended in 2018.

Self Reliance is as far from the LA loft as you can get – but still feels like something Nick Miller would absolutely get himself caught up in…

In the movie, he plays Tommy, who is faced with the prospect of winning $1million by taking part in a grim reality show and outwitting hunters who are hoping to kill him.

However, he stumbles across a loophole after realizing he can only be killed if he’s alone, so attempts to surround himself with friends, family and whoever he can get his hands on in a bid to stay alive.

The official synopsis reads: ‘When a middle-aged man is invited into a limo by famous actor Andy Samberg, his dull life takes a thrilling turn.

‘Tommy is offered a chance to win $1million in a dark web reality TV show, where assassins from all over the world attempt to kill him for 30 days.

‘The catch? He can’t be killed if he’s not entirely alone, leading him to recruit an unlikely team to help him survive.’

Self Reliance is available to stream on Hulu now.
