Jake Johnson Reveals How He Helped 'New Girl' Get a Final Season

New Girl was canceled after the sixth season, but the cast was able to help ensure the fans got a seventh season to wrap up the story!

Jake Johnson revealed in a new interview that he personally reached out to executives at Fox to plead his case on why the show deserved more episodes.

“I was one of [cast members] that wrote them and asked for more,” Jake told TVLine. “I said, ‘I don’t think you gave us enough time to finish the show the right way. And I would really appreciate — and I think the fans would appreciate — a final goodbye to these characters.’”

Jake credits the show’s loyal fanbase as the need for more episodes!

“I’ve done a lot of projects — and some of the projects have fans and some don’t,” he added. “And to be on a television show that actually has a group of people who care [is special].”

New Girl‘s seventh season, which will feature a four-year time jump, will premiere in 2018.

Sofia Boutella Says Her 'Mummy' Is The Ultimate Feminist

Sofia Boutella is opening about playing the title role in her anticipated film, The Mummy!

“Why aren’t monsters being played by women? If you piss off a woman she’s far more brutal than a man. How come they didn’t think about that before?,” the 35-year-old actress recently expressed (via LA Times).

“Ahmanet is the ultimate feminist, I think,” Sofia added. “What happened to her is something that’s always existed and, weirdly, still does, being prevented from ever becoming pharaoh because her father has a child and the child is a boy. She’s not OK with that. She doesn’t victimize herself. And the movie also does not victimize her. I feel lucky to be part of this film.”

Pictured: Sofia joining her co-stars Jake Johnson, Courtney B. Vance and director Alex Kurtzman promoting The Mummy at their BUILD Series panel before Sofia made her way to Saks Fifth Avenue for The Mummy window reveal on Wednesday (June 7) in New York City.


FYI: Sofia is wearing a Rodarte dress at the window event.

The 54-year-old actor headlines a cast featuring Russell Crowe, Annabelle Wallis, Jake Johnson, Courtney B. Vance, and Sofia Boutella as The Mummy.

From the sweeping sands of the Middle East through hidden labyrinths under modern-day London, The Mummy brings a surprising intensity and balance of wonder and thrills in an imaginative new take that ushers in a new world of gods and monsters.
