Entering its sixth season, ensemble comedy NEW GIRL takes a modern look at friendship and romance, as a group of five friends attempt to find their respective places in the world, while begrudgingly accepting the responsibilities of adulthood – with often hilarious results.
As the series’ fifth season came to a close, the loftmates celebrated the wedding of SCHMIDT (Emmy Award and Golden Globe nominee Max Greenfield) and CECE (Hannah Simone), as JESS (Emmy Award and Golden Globe nominee Zooey Deschanel) contemplated her renewed romantic feelings toward NICK (Jake Johnson). Meanwhile, WINSTON (Lamorne Morris) took his pranking to a whole new level, and found himself stuck in an actual marriage, while also attempting to get his cat, Furguson, into a Hollywood blockbuster and carrying on an new romance with his police partner, ALY (guest star Nasim Pedrad).
In the season six premiere episode, “House Hunt,” series star Deschanel makes her directorial debut, which finds Nick returning from a summer in New Orleans and Jess throwing herself into a multitude of meaningless hobbies to avoid her conflicted romantic feelings for him. Meanwhile, Schmidt and Cece begin the search for their own house and Winston tries to balance his new long-distance relationship with Aly. Other storylines this season include Jess and Cece campaigning for presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, Winston teaching Nick the art of phone sex and Nick writing a new novel.
Later this fall, comedy worlds collide when characters from BROOKLYN NINE-NINE and NEW GIRL meet each other in the Big Apple in back-to-back episodes airing Tuesday, Oct. 11 on FOX. Then, in January, Megan Fox returns to NEW GIRL, reprising her role as loftmate and Nick’s love interest, REAGAN.
