New Girl has wrapped its fifth season on FOX, and the woman behind the series is already thinking about season six. The Hollywood Reporter shared an interview with Liz Meriwether, and she spoke about the series headed back toward the direction of a Nick and Jess relationship during season six. The pair tried to make it work early on in the series, but things fell apart during season three.
This week’s finale showed Jess pining after Nick after she learned things moved to a new level with the woman in his life, who was played by Megan Fox.
Meriwether teased the following about season six:
“We’re trying to figure out a way to reintroduce the dynamic but in a new way. Jess is out of the relationship with Sam [David Walton] and sort of pining for Nick, while he’s starting his relationship with Reagan [Megan Fox]. Hopefully that takes us to some new story areas next season. I love the two of them together, and I think this season we did a good job of using the guest stars to be catalysts to the Nick-Jess relationship. I think we’re going back into that story area, but hopefully with growth for both characters and a new dynamic that will be still give us some tension between them.”
She called the relationship between the pair the “heart of the show.” Are you excited to see Nick and Jess work their way back together next season? Tell us what you think.
