New Girl” has been renewed on Fox for a seventh season, which will be the show’s last, Variety has learned.

Sources say that the show will return for a shortened eight-episode run for its final season. Fox declined to comment.

“New Girl” did not bring in big numbers its past season, but the show is an important property to Fox, being owned by 20th Century Fox TV and having made rich syndication deals over the years at TBS, MTV and Netflix. The show is Fox’s longest-running live-action comedy on the air, having debuted in 2011. Insiders say the renewal was up in the air, but the network and studio want more episodes.

Created by Liz Meriwether, “New Girl” stars Zooey Deschanel, Jake Johnson, Max Greenfield, Lamorne Morris and Hannah Simone.

Meriwether also had a comedy pilot in contention at Fox for the 2017-2018 season with “Thin Ice,” though sources say the pilot did not turn out as strong as expected, and the project has not been ordered to series.

    Bittersweet. Wanted for them not to be cancelled at season 6 and I got my wish but can’t help but feel like salt getting poured into my wounds with the whole “shortened” season for the series finale. Not ready for this story to end. I feel like there is so much more story to tell.

      This comment might be funny or at least retaliatory if you knew how the Reply function worked. But it just reads like someone standing in a room all by themselves talkin trash. Work on your general common sense and awareness.. they are obvious weaknesses.

    Note to author Elizabeth Wagmeister: It would have been good to mention when it will return; should we assume fall 2017?

  8. Mel says:

    I am very pleased as I’ll get a better series finale but also I am juggling many shows and need to cut back on TV. LOL.
