Linda Cardellini is moving on from Don Draper.

The Freaks and Geeks and Scooby Doo actress has landed a recurring role on New Girl for the back half of the hit comedy's third season.

Cardellini will play Jess' (Zooey Deschanel) wild sister Abby, tentatively slated to appear in her first episode in February.

New Girl returns from its holiday hiatus on January 7, bringing back Jamie Lee Curtis and Rob Reiner to reprise their roles as Jess' parents.
