FOX's "New Girl" Renewed For Eight-Episode Final Season

Fox alone has cut such single-season shows as Pitch, APB, Son of Zorn and Making History; it has yet to announce the fates of 24: Legacy, Wayward Pines and more.

According to THR, there's no word on how many episodes the season will have, but it will likely be a shorter run than usual.

"New Girl" has been renewed on Fox for a seventh season, which will be the show's last, Variety has learned. No episode count has been revealed, but it is believed to be 8, which was confirmed by star Jake Johnson.

The season 6 finale was written in a way that it could close out some storylines, just in case it ended up being the series finale.

Despite rumours that this season would be its last, it seems as though New Girl is being pushed on for one final season.

Excluding Sunday night animation and freshman The Mick, New Girl actually closes out the 2016-17 season as Fox's highest-rated returning half hour. While the plot of the series saw Deschanel's Jess sequestered on jury duty and renting out her space in the loft to the new new girl, the move was actually done to cover Deschanel's real life pregnancy. As viewers will recall, actress Megan Fox began appearing in Season 5 of New Girl, seemingly subbing for Zooey while she was on maternity leave after the birth of her first child.
