New Girl lives on.
Fox has renewed New Girl for a seventh season, which will be the comedy's final one. In an interview with the Daily Beast around that time, actor Jake Johnson (who portrays Nick Miller on the show) spoke about Fox's apparent doubtfulness in allowing New Girl to return for one more season. "Together with Jess' best friend, Cece, they bond to form an unlikely, and dysfunctional, family". The news of the show's renewal follows a period of uncertainty for New Girl after Season 6 was rumored to be its last. So, when the show comes back, it'll presumably be for more of a victory lap than for more protracted will-they-won't-they drama-not that the constant will-they-won't-they teases haven't been fun for these last few years. No episode count has been revealed, but it is believed to be 8, which was confirmed by star Jake Johnson.
New Girl ended its sixth season in April on an ambiguous note, with a finale written to serve as both a season and potential series ender. "The general scuttlebutt is good and positive that we will be coming back".

The president added that he asked Comey three times - once in person, twice on the phone - if he was under investigation. That was not included in the memo dated Tuesday in which Rosenstein outlined his recommendation to fire Comey.
Even so, those two million viewers were apparently not enough for Fox to give New Girl any leeway past a final Season 7.
According to THR, there's no word on how many episodes the season will have, but it will likely be a shorter run than usual. "The truth is we really, really don't know what the answer is", he said.
