New Girl: Season 3 Photos

Tv Season Info

The comedy series' third series is all about the chemistry between Jess (Zooey Deschanel) and Nick (Jake Johnson) and their dynamic with the rest of the gang as they go from being "just friends" to "boyfriend and girlfriend." On the heels of Series 2's big romantic finale, the newly minted lovebirds escape to Mexico on a whim, unsure of how to proceed in these unfamiliar roles. Upon their return, Schmidt (Max Greenfield) has trouble adjusting to the new relationship, and so he spends a great deal of time actively trying to break them up. In other events, the loft gains two new members: Original loftmate Coach (Damon Wayans Jr.) returns; and Winston (Lamorne Morris) adopts a cat.

New Girl is back to being the energetic wonder it was last year.

It wasn't the most polished - or even the most nuanced - New Girl episode ever. But a second viewing that made for even more laughs than the first gives me hope that this season has somewhere to go.

kudos to the writers of New Girl for getting Winston to a place where he makes an impact. The question now is, where does Coach fit in?

Nov 6, 2013 | Full Review…

The hilarious [Damon] Wayans [Jr.] is back for six episodes starting Tuesday, and the newly single Coach has his party pants on.

Nov 5, 2013 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

[E]ven though 'All In' stumbles when it visits its secondary characters, still marks a great return for FOX's signature comedy.

Feb 12, 2020 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…

The season premiere was a solid episode that set a good pace for the new season.

Aug 26, 2018 | Full Review…

Overall, not a bad start to Season 3.

Sep 18, 2013 | Rating: 7.4/10 | Full Review…

"All In" is a fantastic entrance into New Girl's third season, with all the hilarious and touching moments that have made New Girl one of the best comedies on TV.

Sep 18, 2013 | Rating: 8.6/10 | Full Review…

Luckily the hiatus has finally ended, and Tuesday's "Clavado En Un Bar" (Stuck in the Bar) brought the laughs.

Jan 8, 2014 | Full Review…

The issue is that this mode of crafting an episode is leaving the characters with no place to go beyond this all encompassing relationship.

Oct 17, 2013 | Full Review…

I've worried about the direction [it] has...[taken some of its characters], with Schmidt turning heel and Winston going insane. "The Captain" kept pushing both of those angles and yet it was by far the funniest and most satisfying episode [yet].

Oct 9, 2013 | Full Review…

[The] classic sitcom staple of the threesome [Cece, Schmidt and Elizabeth] relationship leads to some very funny situations.

Audience Reviews for New Girl: Season 3

  • Jul 06, 2020
    all the characters are really relatable. and are perfect for each other. I have a very hard time hating these characters.
  • Jul 06, 2020
    In my opinion this is new girls best season. Every character has a great dynamic and the chemistry between nick and jess is amazing.
  • Jan 09, 2017
    decent first half, great second half (2 viewings)
  • Oct 21, 2015
    Why are so many men in sitcoms portrayed as obnoxious idiots. This one is worse than most. Zooey cannot save this show.
  • May 26, 2014
    Enfim, depois de três temporadas, a série se encontrou. A volta do Coach ajudou demais, dando o peso certo para cada personagem e fazendo ficar menos "comédia da sessão da tarde". O season finale foi a cereja do bolo. Que melhore ainda mais na próxima temporada.
  • May 26, 2014
    Entrenida y comica. Una de las mas pasables.
  • May 05, 2014
    Aside from the first six or seven episodes of the first season, New Girl has consistently been the funniest sitcom on television, by far, and that definitely didn't change in season three. This season is characterized by Nick and Jess' relationship, which doesn't supply that many laughs in and of itself, but coach's return coupled with Schmidt makes for an incredible tandem... And Winston... Oh Winston. He is, without question, the funniest character on television today. The 90s had Kramer, then Chandler, then Barney, and now Winston. This show's hilarious, just watch it..

    Its quirky and cute, Zoey definitely brings a lot of herself into the character, easy watching
  • Mar 26, 2014
    Easily one of the funniest shows on tv.
  • Mar 22, 2014
    I don't know if it's just me but new girl season 3 is not interesting.. I LOVED the first 2 seasons! it was so hilarious! I watched it over probably twice. but this season... I am speechless. :( it makes me sad because I think the writers can't really come up with a good storyline to keep up with this show.
