“New Girl” Renewed for Final Season

Good and bad news! New Girl has been renewed for season 7, but it will be the final season. The season will consist of eight episodes. Thanks to Fox for giving us fans a chance to say goodbye!

New Girl Renewed for (Final) Season 7 — How Many Episodes Are We Getting?

New Girl is not gone, girl. But it will be soon.

Fox has renewed the Zooey Deschanel-fronted comedy for an abbreviated seventh and final season, TVLine has learned.

Although a Fox rep declined to confirm an episode count, sources say that the farewell season will consist of eight installments (something co-star Jake Johnson has since confirmed on Twitter).

Given the series’ bubble status, producers packed last month’s Season 6 finale with closure. “I think it would be really disappointing to have the show go off the air and not give the audience a satisfactory conclusion to a story line that’s been the engine of the show since Season 1,” EP Brett Baer previously told TVLine of the decision to give Deschanel’s Jess and Jake Johnson’s Nick (aka the series’ central couple) a happy ending. “That said, we’re obviously hoping [for a Season 7]. We have ideas for how to propel the show into the future. But we didn’t want to go off the air without answering this question.”

New Girl was a breakout hit when it premiered in 2011, drawing 10.3 million viewers and a 4.8 demo rating; it was Fox’s biggest comedy bow since The Bernie Mac Show launched in 2001. Ratings cooled with each subsequent season, with its sixth season averaging 2.7 million viewers and a 1.3 demo rating.

“New Girl” and “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” Will Stage a Rare Comedy Crossover

‘New Girl’ and ‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine’ Will Stage a Rare Comedy Crossover This Fall

Fox’s Tuesday series will split a full hour this October.

In a head-scratching move that simultaneously makes so much sense, New Girl and Brooklyn Nine-Nine are about to join forces.

Fox’s two longest-running comedies will crossover for a one-hour episode on Tuesday, Oct. 11, the network announced Monday at the Television Critics Association’s summer press tour. Per Fox’s latest schedule, New Girl and Brooklyn Nine-Nine already air back-to-back on Tuesday nights.

“The crossover episode has historically been the artistic high point of any show that has dared to attempt it,”  New Girl creator Elizabeth Meriwether quipped in a statement. “Maybe you remember Blackout Thursday on NBC, or even further back the infamous Alf/Gilligan’s Island crossover of the late 1980s. New Girl and Brooklyn Nine-Nine will proudly and humbly go where few shows have gone since the 1990s. We know we have big shoes to fill, and we look forward to disappointing everyone. There’s a 50 percent chance Alf will also be in both episodes. But there’s also a 50 percent chance that is a lie.”

Most networks are pretty crossover-happy these days, though not on the comedy front. The CW is plotting a massive event for its suite of DC Comics shows, NBC keeps loose borders between its five Dick Wolf productions and CBS enjoys the occasional meet-up in its NCIS and Criminal Minds universes. Fox has been largely been left out, though there was the Sleepy Hollow/Bones event last season.

What’s most unique about the New Girl/Brooklyn Nine-Nine crossover might be the fact that the two don’t even share a studio. Brooklyn comes from Universal Television, while New Girl is produced in-house at 20th Century Fox TV.

No immediate details about the episode were available, only that it would take place in New York (read: a Los Angeles studio subbing for New York), but the creators are clearly taking it all very seriously.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine crossing over with New Girl is very exciting, but (and this is supposed to be a secret) it’s just the first step,” said Brooklyn Nine-Nine co-creator Dan Goor in his own statement. “Stay tuned for our two casts to do a soulful R&B number on Empire, co-anchor the Fox 10 O’Clock News and connect for a touchdown on Fox NFL Sunday. But in all seriousness, we’re all huge fans of New Girl here at the Nine-Nine, and we’re excited to see our characters interact and to work with their incredible writers and producers. And also to see what their craft services are like, compared to ours.”

Zooey to Direct “New Girl” Season 6 Premiere

New Girl: Zooey Deschanel to direct season 6 premiere — exclusive

Who’s that girl behind the camera? It’s Zooey Deschanel!

The actress, who stars as Jess on New Girl, will make her directorial debut with the comedy’s season 6 premiere, EW has learned. Titled “House Hunt,” the episode will pick up three months after the season 5 finale, which saw Jess and Nick (Jake Johnson) part ways, Cece (Hannah Simone) and Schmidt (Max Greenfield) get married, and Winston (Lamorne Morris) carry out his best prank yet when he followed Cece and Schmidt all the way to the beach on their honeymoon, scaring them just as they settled in.

Since then, Jess has been distracting herself from her renewed romantic feelings for Nick by throwing herself into new hobbies while he’s been away in New Orleans with Reagan (Megan Fox, who’s set to return later in season 6). At the same time, Winston attempts to keep up his long-distance relationship with Aly (Nasim Pedrad), and newlyweds Cece and Schmidt go house hunting — the plot thread that inspired the episode title.

The cast had their first table read Monday afternoon for the season 6 premiere, and the exclusive photo of Deschanel’s new and improved name plate for the episode and the cover of the script can be seen below:

Site News!

Hi everyone, as you may know, since 2011, Joseph & Zooey Web has been a site to support friends and co-stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt & Zooey Deschanel. I have finally decided to make them into individual sites, because it now seems to be a better fit. Please bookmark ZooeyDeschanel.org (and Joseph-Gordon-Levitt.com) as JosephZooey will be no more! I have removed Joe’s photos from the gallery, but there may have been some that I have missed and will fix that soon. I will also be fixing the homepage and other pages. For now I have kept the same themes as they were before. Stay tuned for more updates soon. Thank you for visiting.
