From Fox Broadcasting entertainment president David Madden:
Every network comedy should aspire to what Liz Meriwether is achieving in ‘New Girl,’ with its bravura dialogue, inventive and witty performances by the talented cast and emotionally engaging storytelling. The series is as creatively strong today as it ever was, we want to congratulate ‘New Girl’ on reaching its milestone 100th episode, and we can’t wait for the next subversive and hilarious chapter of these characters’ lives.”
What do you think? Do you watch New Girl? Are you glad it’s been renewed? How many seasons do you think it will last?
