‘New Girl’ Renewed for 7th and Final Season

20th Century Fox Television has renewed its Zooey Deschanel-starring comedy “New Girl” for its seventh and final season, the studio announced Sunday.

The ensemble comedy centers on a free-spirited young woman (Deschanel), her three male roommates — Nick (Jake Johnson), Schmidt (Max Greenfield) and Winston (Lamorne Morris) — and her female best friend Cece (Hannah Simone), as they navigate modern relationships and form a charmingly dysfunctional family.

Last season, “New Girl” averaged a 0.9 rating and 2 million viewers — comparable to other Fox comedies like “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” and “The Last Man on Earth” that already got picked up. The rating grew to 1.6 after a week of on-demand viewing.
