New Girl: Season 2 (2012 - 2013)



Critic Consensus: New Girl's terrific ensemble cast remains its most valuable asset, and the show is buoyed by a deeper, more relatable central performance from lead Zooey Deschanel in its sophomore season.

Tv Season Info

In the quirky comedy's second series, Jess (Zooey Deschanel) tries to find a new career after she's laid off from her teaching job. She also starts dating a handsome doctor, but her increasingly close friendship with roommate Nick (Jake Johnson) leads to romantic complications. Meanwhile, Cece (Hannah Simone) learns that time may be running out for her to have children naturally, so she begins aggressively seeking a suitable Indian husband—much to the dismay of Schmidt (Max Greenfield), who's still in love with her; and Winston (Lamorne Morris) experiences ups and downs in his career and love life.

Catchphrases aside, Deschanel actually plays tough much better than twee.

This show was at once a breath of fresh air. Now, with a love triangle, a wedding finale, and a big guest appearance, it feels more of the same.

The strength of the show is in its ensemble cast...

Fox's adorkable comedy New Girl returned from its first year a smarter, funnier and all-around better show.

Overall, "Elaine's Big Day" is a very good finale to what has been an exceptional second season of New Girl, and we should await the third season with baited breath.

Funny though it can be, New Girl is going nowhere.

New Girl is the rare mainstream sitcom that's exceedingly at ease in discussing race, largely because it acknowledges the characters' well-meaning, flawed views, and plays them for eye rolls and laughs.

Fortified with great chemistry, the entire cast in an irresistible force, spouting goofy one-liners that put us in constant crack-up mode.

I really love New Girl- with that sort of unconditional, I just like hanging around with all these crazy people affection that some TV shows inspire.

These two episodes were actually among the funnier non-Dermot Mulroney Jess episodes the show's done.
