The Fox comedy's Christmas episode is flashing back to Halloween

The verdict is in: The cast of New Girl has won Halloween.

In a crossover that we’re now dying for, New Girl creator Liz Meriweather has shared a picture of the cast dressed up as the characters from The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story.

The image, which is actually from the show’s Christmas episode, features Jess (Zooey Deschanel) as Marcia Clark, Schmidt (Max Greenfield) as Robert Shapiro, Nick (Jake Johnson) as Robert Kardashian, Cece (Hannah Simone) as Judge Lance Ito, and Winston (Lamorne Morris) as Johnnie Cochran.

Due to Fox’s World Series coverage, the sitcom doesn’t have a Halloween episode this season, so instead, a December installment kicks off with a flashback to the crew celebrating the spooky holiday. But, it turns out that the minute that the clock strikes 12:01 a.m on Nov. 1, Jess is already in full Christmas mode.

Hopefully, Ryan Murphy keeps this image in mind when casting the next two seasons of American Crime Story.
