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.

Is 'New Girl' Ending? Jake Johnson Clarifies His Comments

Jake Johnson is speaking out after comments he made about the end of his Fox comedy New Girl were taken out of context.

The 38-year-old actor was asked if the show will be coming back for a seventh season and he reportedly told The Daily Beast that the show is almost certainly “done” after the sixth season finale.

“Fox won’t tell us [whether the show will be renewed],” Jake said. “But we shot a finale where, if this was the end, the core fan base would be OK.”

Jake took to Twitter over the weekend to clarify the comments and say that he really doesn’t know if the show will be back or not.

“Let’s be clear. I have no idea if NG is coming back. I was doing an interview for #WinItAll & was asked my guess. We’ve been told it’s 50/50,” he tweeted.

The season six finale airs on April 4.
