New Girl: Season 2

Story by Jack Foley

NEW Girl has been renewed for a sixth season.

The news means that the series is now Fox’s longest-running live-action comedy.

Announcing the renewal in a statement on Tuesday (April 12, 2016), Fox entertainment president David Madden said: “Every network comedy should aspire to what Liz Meriwether is achieving in New Girl, with its bravura dialogue, inventive and witty performances by the talented cast and emotionally engaging story-telling.

“The series is as creatively strong today as it ever was, we want to congratulate New Girl on reaching its milestone 100th episode and we can’t wait for the next subversive and hilarious chapter of these characters’ lives.”

The series revolves around Zooey Deschanel’s Jess and the three men she lives with (including Max Greenfield and Jake Johnson).

It airs on E4 in the UK, with the fifth season due to air later this year.
