'New Girl' Renewed for Season 5 By Fox!

Zooey Deschanel‘s Fox comedy The New Girl just got a fifth season renewal from the network!

In fact, the cast has already begun shooting the fifth season due to Zooey‘s pregnancy. They decided to shoot a bunch of episodes while Zooey is still able to work before the baby comes. Then the cast will get a bit of a hiatus, E! News reports.

“I have been having a lot of fun in the writers’ room this year putting some of the relationship drama aside and just focusing on making the stories as funny as possible,” creator Liz Meriwether told the publication. “Surprisingly, telling stories about smaller events in the characters’ lives has actually deepened the relationships on the show. It turns out the best way to tell a story about a relationship is to not tell a story about a relationship. I’m going to get that quote tattooed to my lower back later.”

There’s an all new New Girl on tonight!

Damon Wayans Jr. Leaving 'New Girl' at End of This Season

Damon Wayans Jr. has announced that he will leave New Girl at the end of the current fourth season.

“I’m so grateful to have had the opportunity to come back to New Girl in Season 3 to reprise the role of Coach,” the 32-year-old actor told TVLine in a statement. “Working with this incredibly talented and funny cast and crew has been one of the best experiences of my career.”

In case you don’t remember, Damon actually appeared in the New Girl pilot, but wasn’t able to continue with the series due to his commitment with ABC’s Happy Endings. He ended up making a special guest appearance in season three and then became a series regular for season four.

“We love Damon and are so lucky to have had him return for the past season-and-a-half,” New Girl executive producer Liz Meriwether added. “We are working on crafting an exit for him that will leave the door open for many more returns, especially since Coach is our resolution to the upcoming ‘Who’s Jess’ Baby Daddy?’ storyline.”

Jessica Biel Will Play Hottest Scientist in the World on 'New Girl'!

Jessica Biel will be joining the cast of New Girl as a guest star for the upcoming fourth season, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

The 32-year-old actress’ character is described as being the hottest scientist in the world, and she will square off with Jess (Zooey Deschanel) for the attention of a cute guy at a wedding they are both attending.

New Girl creator Liz Meriwether recently chatted about breaking up the characters Jess and Nick (Jake Johnson).

“I love them together and I don’t think it’s it for them at all,” she said. “I’ve never been in a good relationship … I just found that it’s been easier for me to write them as single idiots out in the world trying to get laid and looking for love. I had trouble figuring out where the conflict and comedy was coming from with them last season. Admittedly, it’s definitely fun to keep them apart for more.”
