The fifth season of Fox's comedy hit series New Girl only finished earlier this May, but it appears that the studio is very eager to keep it going by already announcing season 6 of the show.
Indeed, a few weeks ago, the network confirmed that the light-hearted funny-fest will be one of few chosen productions to be picked up for the 2016/17 season. As it stands, season 6 of New Girl will be joining Bob's Burgers, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, The Last Man on Earth, Family Guy and The Simpsons in making a bold return in the future.
At the time, the entertainment president of Fox Broadcasting, said:
“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 can we expect from New Girl season 6?
As with all beloved shows, the moment the credits roll on the finale of a season, we rush to find out what we can expect from the following one. Ultimately, what details are there about season 6 of New Girl?
Well, honestly — not much.
However, there is rife speculation that Megan Fox will make another appearance as Reagan — after all, the last we saw of her was when she had that unexpected kiss with Nick so we are absolutely craving to see more.
Additionally, it is pretty much a given that Zooey Deschanel will be reprising her role as the main protagonist Jessica Day in New Girl's season 6. So, my guess is that upon her return (from maternity in real-life, of course), her character will have to come to terms with her feelings for Nick as she tip-toes around his new relationship with ultimate babe Megan Fox's Reagan. I bet she wishes she could do this again (awww!):
Thankfully, the snippets of New Girl information that creator Liz Meriweather has recently shared mildly collude with the Jess/Nick/Reagan arc. For example, she's just hinted at the kind of group dynamic that could lie in store in season 6, saying:
"For me, it's the heart of the show. I knew we were going to come back to it, but we had to figure out a way to get back into it that feels good for the show and the characters and will allow us to have stories… 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. Hopefully that takes us to some new story areas next season.”
I can't wait! After all, Megan Fox's shaking up of the dynamic in season 5 was no bad thing, was it?
