Who’s that girl? It’s Jess! Well, not anymore. After seven seasons and countless laughs, FOX aired the final two episodes of the hit show, ‘New Girl,’ on May 15. Zooey Deschanel starred in this popular comedy involving a girl who moves in with three single guys- Schmidt (Matt Greenfield), Winston (Lamorne Morris), and Nick (Jake Johnson). The series received five Primetime Emmy nominations and was one of the network’s most prominent shows, with 146 episodes. It has been hugely popular the past seven years, with fans trying to recreate various pranks and games played throughout the series. Warning: If you decide to play True American, make sure you have a lot of furniture on hand, as the floor is “molten lava.”
The final two episodes are a testament to a show that remained a comedic treasure, as the characters perform their last pranks and their future is played out. The last sendoff brings back some of the series more ambiguous characters that create a nostalgic feel for the episodes.
Deadline Hollywood sat down with Deschanel to speak with her about the series ending. She said, “It’s kind of like high school, where it’s this thing that has been a constant in my life for seven years. It’s been with me [as] I got married, I had two kids, and all these people, I’ve become close with- the cast and the crew.”
Greenfield (Schmidt), said in an interview with E News that, “I think [creator Liz Meriwether] and the writer did a really great job of saying we’re going to have fun with these eight episodes, and we’re going to kind of play the hits.”
