New Girl Season 8: Canceled or to be Renewed?

New Girl is an American TV sitcom conceived by Elizabeth Meriweather. The program is produced by 20th Television and distributed by FOX. It currently has seven seasons that ran between 2011 and 2018. The series features Zooey Deschanel, Jake Johnson, Max Greenfield, Damon Wayans Jr., Hannah Simone, Lamorne Morris, Danielle Rockoff, and Rhiannon Rockoff.


New Girls is a blend of comedy and drama elements and showcases the characters in their thirty-something, dealing with relationship problems and career ambitions. The first season premiered on September 20, 2011. After running for seven long seasons, the series was canceled after the seventh season which was launched on May 15, 2018. This came as a surprise to many fans but at the same time, the show ended on a satisfactory note and gave the sitcom a proper send-off. 


Will there be a Season 8 of New Girl?


Sadly, there won’t be an eighth season of New Girl as the series was officially canceled after the seventh season which means the seventh season was the final outing of the program. 


Why did Fox Cancel Season 8 of New Girl?


The exact reason is unclear but we do know that like every other television series, viewership plays a vital role and this applies to the sitcom as well. Unfortunately, viewership was declining and even though the program never did receive extremely high ratings from the very beginning it had a stable ratings and viewership. But after the sixth season, the ratings dropped drastically and this made Fox rethink its decision and planned not to go ahead with the seventh season. However, the crew and cast members somehow convinced the network to give the show a proper conclusion and also for the fans to give them a chance to bid goodbye to their favorite characters as they felt that ending with the seventh season may seem too abrupt. 


Hence, Fox released season 7 to end the series for good. The seventh season arrived after three years of the sixth season which only had eight episodes. Compared to the past seasons, the number of episodes was much lesser in season 7. 


Needless to say, season 7 was the ultimate final season and it’s highly unlikely for the series to return with season 8. 


Here is the list of episodes of the New Girl season 7–


  • Episode 1:     “About Three Years Later”

  • Episode 2: “Tuesday Meeting”

  • Episode 3:     “Lillypads”

  • Episode 4: “Where the Road Goes”

  • Episode 5:     “Godparents”

  • Episode 6:     “Mario”

  • Episode 7: “The Curse of the Pirate Bride”

  • Episode 8: “Engram Pattersky”


The Cast of New Girl Season 8


As previously mentioned, there won’t be an eighth season in the future. But on the off chance, if season 8 returns we can expect to see all the major characters reprising their roles including–


  • Zooey Deschanel in the role of Jessica Day

  • Jake Johnson plays Nick Miller

  • Max Greenfield will play Schmidt

  • Lamorne Morris portrays Winston Bishop

  • Hannah Simone will return as Cece

  • Damon Wayans Jr. will be back as Coach

  • Danielle and Rhiannon Rockoff will return as Ruth


The showrunners have ended the series for good. Therefore, it is pretty evident that New Girl will not proceed further.
