I haven't seen all eight of these episodes, but I've seen several, and they're a lot of fun.

The time jump itself felt like a decision rife with possibility.

It was a fittingly sentimental (and funny) send-off for one of the decade's most effortlessly enjoyable TV shows.

But what season 7 brings in addition to the details of these characters lives as they venture off into adulthood away from the loft is a string of steadily funny and gratifying episodes meant to provide definitive closure for the series and its fans.

It feels like spending time with friends you used to hang out with way more often a a few years ago; things are kind of different now, but the comedy, from the physical to the face flinches to the inside jokes, is all still there.

Consider the seventh season a well-deserved victory lap.

Apr 12, 2018 | Full Review…

New Girl has earned my trust: I fully expect the cast and crew to make the eight episodes of this shortened final season a tumult of misunderstandings, fumbles, and wacky mishaps suffused with the antic joy and love that has fueled the show.

Apr 26, 2018 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…

Jessica Day is a wildly competent woman. This is a far cry from the Jess we met in New Girl's pilot so very long ago.

Apr 12, 2018 | Full Review…

What this season proves is that these characters don't need to be playing drinking games and sleeping with the wrong people to be the people their fans grew to love.

Apr 11, 2018 | Full Review…

We're pretty sure everything will be okay, because in the end, there's no killing true love.

Audience Reviews for New Girl: Season 7

    Definitely my least favorite season, the time jump and children seemed to have take something out of the show for me. All in all pretty good ending though.

    Been a New Girl fan for 6 seasons now but this one was awful. I personally hated Cece's child. I thought she was annoying and her scenes had a forced comedy that wasn't even funny. That bothered me so much I couldn't go past the 4th episode.

    This season feels like different writers, we used to laugh every episode and this season we DO NOT at all. Additionally they have started pushing liberal political views unnecessarily which seems totally forced and out of place. Glad it’s over, they jumped the shark with this season.

    Sad to see it end! Schmidt is my hero!

    While this season does wrap up all the plot lines fans have been following for 6 seasons, it does a rushed job of it, quickly trying to hash out any unresolved points in as little time possible. While fans may have been expecting a true tribute to the ending of the shows great characters, overall the season falls short of any true fulfillment. Everything feels rushed through and while still enjoyable to watch, at the end you may find yourself wondering where the rest is. While we've been eagerly watching Jess and Nick's relationship blossom for 6 entire seasons, suddenly the show just wants to be done with them, rushing the end of their relationship and completely forgetting all their original problems. How is is that Cece and Schmit get an entire season to explore their relationship and wedding, but the main coupling of the show gets 3 episodes? It isn't to say that the season is not good, but it definitely did not reach expectation in comparison to it's previous seasons.

    Great show! Loved this show..... just started Season 7 and it seems the prior writing staff have left or died. So much lost opportunity left on the table. :(

    Will miss Winnie the bishop the funny way Schmidt talks the dumb things Nick says and the Crazy Things Jess does
