JAMIE Lee Curtis and Rob Reiner will play the parents of Zooey Deschanel in New Girl.

According to a report on TV Line, and confirmed by The Hollywood Reporter, the duo will join the second series for one episode.

They will make their appearance in November in the US when Jess invites them over for Thanksgiving in an attempt to stage a Parent Trap-style plan aimed at getting them back together.

Curtis and Reiner join other recent New Girl guests including Rob Riggle as Schmidt’s cousin and Carla Gugino, who will appear in a three-episode arc as Schmidt’s new boss.
