New Girl: The Final Season ★★★★★

At the end of season six of New Girl, I was fairly content and ready to let go of the charming comedy that had kept me entertained for the last seven years. Everything felt settled into place and all the characters’ stories appeared to have come to an end. After several failed relationships, Jess (Zooey Deschanel) and Nick (Jake Johnson) finally cut the crap and realised they were meant to be together (which I think literally every fan has been waiting for since the beginning). Cece (Hannah Simone) and Schmidt (Max Greenfield) were married with a baby on the way and even Winston was engaged. So, was another season really needed?

Season seven skips forward ‘about 3 years’ and almost acts as a prequel to the previous seasons to remind us that life carries on after these momentous events.  Despite the gang growing up, the stuff that they get up to in this season is equally as comical and absurd as it was seven years ago. This series brings a cat funeral, questionable moustaches and one final round of ‘True American.’ Even Coach (Damon Wayans Jr.) makes a final appearance. As a New Girl fan, this season really made my heart swell. Whilst it still had twists and turns that kept me on my toes, I felt as though the time I had invested into New Girl was worth it just to see a happy ending.

The only disappointing part of this season was how short it was. It only contains a measly eight episodes, not even coming close to the twenty-two episodes every other season features. That being said, I think I was probably just being a bit greedy by wanting more as it actually does a great job at saying goodbye to the gang in such few episodes.

Overall, the final season of New Girl was just as enjoyable as the last six seasons. Whilst I’m not entirely sure it was all that necessary, I’m never going to complain about another season of a great show. It brings the gang together for one final, weird and heart-warming goodbye. If it doesn’t leave you smiling, then I’ll be damned.
