After being off the air since mid-March, it has been announced that US comedy series New Girl will be moving from Channel 4 to E4 and will return with new episodes on Tuesday July 10th at 9pm, with two back-to-back episodes.
New Girl was created by Elizabeth Meriwether and revolves around Jess Day, a school teacher who, after a bad break-up, needs to find a new place to live. An online search leads her to a great loft…and three single guys she’s never met before. But Jess moves in, and through her upbeat personality, unique sense of self and the unlikely support of her new roommates, she learns to move on. The comedy series stars Zooey Deschanel, Jake Johnson, Max Greenfield, Lamorne Morris and Hannah Simone.
In the first new episode (airing at 9pm), titled The Landlord, Jess and Nick run into Remy, their surly landlord, in the lift. While Nick takes the chance to complain about the long list of broken items in their flat, Jess decides to befriend him. However, she inadvertently reveals to Remy that there are too many people living in the loft apartment and the flatmates scramble to hide the fact that they have broken so many of the tenancy rules. Meanwhile, Schmidt becomes convinced that his boss has been subtly trying to seduce him, so he asks Cece for advice and is surprised by what she says.
In the second episode (airing at 9:30pm), titled Valentines Day, Jess talks Schmidt into going out on the hunt for one-night stands with her as she is single on Valentine’s Day for the first time in six years and refuses to stay at home alone. Cece points out that Jess is not capable of having sex without getting emotionally attached, but Jess won’t be dissuaded and deliberately chooses a guy she has nothing in common with for her casual encounter. Julia’s devotion to her career gets in the way when Nick attempts to organise a romantic Valentine’s Day dinner, and Winston gets the wrong idea when Shelby invites him over to her place.
