Tv Season Info

Season 5 of the quirky comedy features a lot of changes for the whole gang. Cece (Hannah Simone) and Schmidt (Max Greenfield) deal with their engagement and planning the wedding, wondering what married life will be like; Jess (Zooey Deschanel) meets someone from her past and starts a relationship with him; Winston (Lamorne Morris) becomes a hero when he saves a boy's life; Nick (Jake Johnson) takes his job at the restaurant more seriously and becomes a tougher boss. When Jess is called away for jury duty, the others rent out her room to Reagan (guest star Megan Fox), whose lifestyle and past make everyone else question their relationship with each other.

Critic Reviews for New Girl: Season 5

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (2)

Seeing Fox's fivesome back together after a long break is a refreshing experience for sitcom savants, but it may also be time for the band to break up.

While New Girl continues to churn out solid jokes, its new season suffers from repetitive plotlines.

January 5, 2016 | Rating: 5/10 | Full Review…

Season 5 makes its debut in a way that feels both like a reunion among long separated friends and their realization that times are a-changing.

January 13, 2016 | Rating: 9/10 | Full Review…

After all, people can change, but certain parts of one's personality usually don't. And fortunately, New Girl's writers are smart enough to have realized that the time had come to push their characters forward without changing who they truly are.

In the end, I was reminded why I have always stuck with this show - the friendship.

January 6, 2016 | Rating: 4.4/5 | Full Review…

It's the sort of New Girl that didn't have me laughing every minute, but did have me smiling for most of its running length.
