New Girl Renewed for a Seventh and Final Season

Max Greenfield Hannah Simone Zooey Deschanel Jake Johnson and Lamorne Morris New Girl

It turns out there's still more of Jess' story to tell on New Girl.

"New Girl" averaged a 0.9 rating and 2.06 million viewers the night it aired this season, in line with other renewed FOX comedies like "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" and "The Last Man on Earth". The possible count confirmation comes from New Girl star Jake Johnson, who plays the lovably naive and somewhat lost Nick Miller. We don't have specifics yet, but Deadline predicts that this will be a shortened season for New Girl, presumably coming in at 13 episodes instead of the usual 22. "Together with Jess' best friend, Cece, they bond to form an unlikely, and dysfunctional, family". However, the show was still able to come back for a final season.

In an interview with The Daily Beast back in March, Johnson revealed that he and the rest of the show's cast and crew were prepared for the comedy to end after Season 6, so much so that the finale was written to serve as both a season ender and a potential series finale.

#NewGirl has been picked up for 8 final episodes! News also dished out some incontrovertible stats about the show's six-year reign. The final season will likely follow the gang as they pack up the loft and transition into these exciting new chapters. Variety reports that New Girl "did not bring in big numbers [in] its past season", which quite possibly contributed to the network's order of only eight episodes to send off the show in Season 7.
