The sitcom New Girl is not so new any more. Since the show was first broadcast in 2011, 146 episodes have been aired across seven seasons, the last of which went out in 2018.


Where to watch New Girl?

Episodes were previously available to watch on All4, however they have since been removed. Although it is on Netflix in America, UK viewers will be disappointed – it is not currently available to stream on Netflix in the UK.

However, E4 does broadcast reruns so all is not lost - and you can watch it on Amazon Prime or buy the DVD box set.

Alternatively, you can buy episodes on iTunes.

What is New Girl about?

The show follows four friends in their early thirties who live in an apartment in Los Angeles.

It documents issues with their romantic relationships and their jobs, and their hopes and fears about the future. The lead character is Jess, played by Zooey Deschanel, who is the eponymous New Girl - she joined the other characters, Schmidt (Max Greenfield), Winston (Lamorne Morris) and Nick (Jake Johnson), her on-screen love interest, in their apartment in the first season.
