It was announced today that Fox has renewed New Girl for a seventh and final season. The Zooey Deschanel-led comedy has had a successful run for the network, first as a breakout hit in 2011 and then as a reliable utility player during its later years, where it still managed to rank as Fox's highest-rated live-action comedy.
Knowing the end was certainly happening sooner than later, showrunners smartly wrapped up Season 6 in a way that could serve as a series ender if need be. But with today's pickup for 2017-2018, the show now has eight last episodes to properly conclude the series.
