'New Girl' Is Gearing Up For It's Seventh And Final Season

20th Century Fox Television has renewed its Zooey Deschanel’s hit sitcom, “New Girl,” for its seventh and final season.

Last season, “New Girl” averaged a 0.9 rating and 2 million viewers — comparable to other Fox comedies like “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” and “The Last Man on Earth” that already got picked up. 

The rating grew to 1.6 after a week of on-demand viewing. Sources say that the show will return for a shortened eight-episode run for its final season.

“New Girl” did not bring in big numbers during its past season, but the show is an important property to Fox as it’s longest-running live-action comedy on the air.
