The creator of New Girl has described the show’s upcoming final season as “a love letter to the fans.”
Entertainment Tonight reports that show creator Liz Meriwether said as much during a panel at the winter Television Critics Association press tour this week, noting that she’s “so passionate about this show.”
“It’s been my life for seven years. I did feel really good about the end of season six, but I really wanted a chance to say goodbye to the show with a final season,” Meriwether noted.
“A lot of ends had been tied up in the sixth season and the network had questions about what happens next.”
New Girl’s seventh season kicks off with a three-year time jump on Tuesday, April 10, on FOX.
