Fox Renews Comedy ‘New Girl’ For Fifth Season

Just in time for its return to original episodes tonight, Fox comedy “New Girl” has been picked up for a fifth season, the network announced Tuesday.

While not the ratings dynamo it was early in its run, “New Girl” remains a key component of Fox’s live-action comedy roster, so it’s renewal was something of a no-brainer. The show is also set to celebrate its 100th episode during the upcoming 2015-16 season (most likely in November).

“Four seasons in, ‘New Girl’ continues to be one of the smartest and most relatable comedies on television,” said David Madden, President, Entertainment, Fox Broadcasting Company. “The writing is razor-sharp, the ensemble is consistently hilarious, and we couldn’t be more proud of Liz, Brett, Dave and the entire ‘New Girl’ team. We absolutely love this show and we’re so excited to bring it back for Season Five.”

After airing repeats the last three weeks, “New Girl” returns to originals tonight and will serve as lead-in to the premiere of new comedy “Weird Loners.”

Created by Liz Meriwether (“No Strings Attached”), “New Girl” is produced by Chernin Entertainment in association with 20th Century Fox Television. Meriwether, Dave Finkel, Brett Baer, Jake Kasdan, Peter Chernin and Katherine Pope are executive producers.

Zooey Deschanel, Jake Johnson, Max Greenfield, Lamorne Morris, Damon Wayans, Jr. and Hannah Simone star.
