New Girl renewed for third series

The US comedy starring Zooey Deschanel has been given another season, along with Fox stablemates The Following, Raising Hope and The Mindy Project

Zooey Deschanel’s kooky comedy New Girl has been renewed for a third season by US network Fox. 


The Golden Globe nominated sitcom, which also stars Jake Johnson, Max Greenfield, Lamorne Morris and Hannah Simone, follows Jess Day (Deschanel), a quirky school teacher in her late 20s who moves in with a group of guys following a breakup.

New Girl has proved a hit in the US and has also performed well in the UK for E4, where series two is about to land.

Meanwhile, Fox has ordered returns for New Girl stablemates The Following, Raising Hope and The Mindy Project.


Serial killer thriller The Following  which stars Kevin Bacon, and currently airs here on Sky Atlantic   will return to Fox for a second series, while Raising Hope, which airs on Sky 1 in the UK, has been renewed for a fourth season. Comedy The Mindy Project, following gynaecologist Mindy Lahrir as she navigates her personal and professional life, will get a second run, with the first series bound for E4 later this year.
