New Girl has seen a surge in popularity ever since it dropped on Netflix worldwide over lockdown. The show, which already had a cult following is bigger than ever and fans are desperate to see more. Express.co.uk has everything you need to know.
Will there be a New Girl reunion episode?
New Girl first aired in 2011 on Fox and sadly, came to an end in 2018 after seven seasons.
The show dropped on Netflix earlier this year and fans are re-obsessed or are discovering the show for the first time.
New Girl was Fox’s longest-running live-action comedy on air between 2011 and 2018, so the show’s cancellation came as a bit of surprise.
The show was originally cancelled after six series but creator and executive producer Liz Meriwether were able to turn the tide and pitch the seventh outing.

However, Jake Johnson who plays the loveable man-child, Nick Miller, has spoken out about plans for a show reunion.
Speaking on Slate’s Thirst Aid Kit podcast, Johnson discussed the shows sudden ending in 2018 and the newfound love for the series.
He also revealed he has contacted showrunner Liz Meriwether about the show’s future.
Johnson said: “When we were going away, Fox was being pretty cool and saying like, ‘We don’t want to cancel you, but nobody’s watching.’
“So when we did our final season…Zooey Deschanel and I literally wrote an email to the heads [of the Network] asking for more, for the…fans who stayed with us.”
You can’t end the way season six ended where it was rushed. I was like, ‘Give [writer] Liz Meriwether the time to finish this right!’
“So now that there’s people following [the show], I’m like, it’s not like you’re 10 years too late, you’re 18 months…it’s a little bittersweet. We were just working!”
He also revealed he is still in touch with all of the show’s cast.

Johnson said: “Hannah Simone [CeCe] and I were texting two nights ago…
“Zooey and I still text. All the guys and I are on a text chain.
“Everybody’s still linked up, so I would be surprised if there’s not some sort of a thing at some point where everybody comes back.”
Johnson addressed how difficult it would be to get everyone in the same room again, considering everyone is still successfully working.
He said: “Lamorne [Morris] is now running his own show. He’s becoming a mogul, so Lamorne…he’s coming back with an arc.
“So Liz Meriwether would have to crack a great story, and if she does that, it would be really fun to get everybody back.”
Fans have taken to Twitter to share their excitement regarding the possibility of a reunion.
One fan tweeted: “girls don’t want boyfriends they want a new girl reunion.”
A second fan said: “new girl reunion is exactly what the world needs.”
A third fan added: “a new girl reunion could save 2020.”
