Nick (Jake Johnson) and Jess (Zooey Deschanel) have both been able to find love in the wake of their painful breakup last season on New Girl, but it doesn't sound like their new relationships will stand the test of time.

"I think it's a fun time for Nick because Kai was the rebound and I think Ryan was Jess' rebound so now they're both like kind of in the world again," he tells TVGuide.com.

So does that mean there's a chance the roommates and former lovers are headed for a romantic reconciliation? Not if Johnson gets his way. "I'd like to see him try dating people," Johnson says. "He and Jess didn't work out. I don't think they're done forever, but he's got to get back on his feet and figure out who he is."

So what does that mean for Nick and Jess' future? "I don't think they're getting together soon," he says. "If they do, it's going to be a series finale."
