Is New Girl getting burned off en route to the cancellation graveyard?
Per TVLine, FOX will begin airing two new episodes on Tuesday nights from April 19, through the Season 5 finale on May 10.
With Season 6 renewal not yet forthcoming, the move could be viewed as a cancellation burn off.
However, according to a FOX rep, the double episodes “are purely out of necessity, since New Girl‘s fifth season runs a full 22 episodes but didn’t premiere until January.”
As always, the proof will be the in renewal pudding.
Stay tuned as we continue to monitor the status of New Girl Season 6…
