There’s no need to worry about whether FOX will cancel or renew New Girl for season eight. When the network picked up this season last spring, they made it clear it was a seventh and final season renewal. Hopefully, the writers have used all that advance notice to craft a satisfying New Girl TV series finale. Either way though, my patience and persistence have paid off, and I’m going to eat. Still, I’ll keep an eye on the ratings and any news about possible spin-offs or reunions. Subscribe for free New Girl updates.
