Reportedly cancelled after six seasons, is there still a glimmer of hope for New Girl? Creator Liz Meriwether has no firm ideas for Season 7 and admits the show “could go away,” but is keeping her fingers crossed nonetheless, per THR:
We love the show and we love the cast. It’s just fun to write for them. Even if it feels like we’ve maybe backed ourselves into a corner with Nick and Jess getting back together again, I still feel like there’s a lot we can do with the characters. For the last six years, I’ve always known what my next year is going to look like. This is the first time that I have really no idea. There’s a version where both the pilot and the show go away. (Laughs.) I’m just putting my head down and working and hoping we get an answer soon.
Should New Girl land a miracle seventh season, Meriwether admits it will “probably be our last”:
What excites me is that it would probably be our last — and that we would know that going into it. We could have a little bit more time to figure out an ending of the show. Any version of Schmidt and Cece, whether we jump ahead and they already have the baby or we follow the pregnancy, would be really funny to me. I love these characters, and it’s fun seeing them slowly progress into adulthood. Hopefully we could get Nasim [Pedrad] back. I love her and Lamorne [Morris] together. There’s a lot of fun there. The Nick and Jess thing is a continuing riddle. Our writers are amazing, and I know we’ll figure something out. We’ve thrown this cast a lot of insane stuff over the years. I trust them to keep mining these characters.
Can New Girl escape the clutches of the cancellation reaper for a shock seventh season, or is it already too late? Stay tuned…
