After nearly 10 years on Netflix, comedy “New Girl” is leaving the streaming service to find a new dual home on Hulu and Peacock.
“New Girl” will be available on Hulu and Peacock starting April 17, 2023. Under the shared deal between Disney and NBCUniversal, Peacock and Hulu will share streaming rights to all seven seasons of the show, which will have a total of 146 episodes.
“New Girl,” starring Zooey Deschanel, originally began streaming on Netflix in the United States in the summer of 2013. The show’s ensemble cast includes Deschanel, Jake Johnson, Max Greenfield, Lamorne Morris and Hannah Simone. “New Girl” originally aired on Fox from 2011-2018.
The LA-set comedy centers on five millennial friends who “form a charmingly dysfunctional — or oddly functional — family,” according to the show’s description.
Set in “New Girl,” Jess Day (Dessnal) needs a new place to live after a bad breakup. An online search leads her to a large loft – where she becomes roommates with three single men she’s never met. Nick (Johnson), a law school dropout turned bartender. Schmidt (Greenfield) is a boisterous and aggressive young professional who takes pride in his own stomach. Winston (Morris) is a highly competitive ex-athlete who doesn’t know what to do next. Jess’s childhood best friend, Cece (Simone), rounds up a group of models with a killer deadpan.
“New Girl” featured notable guest stars over seven seasons, including Prince, Taylor Swift, Megan Fox, Damon Wayans Jr., Justin Long, Josh Gad, Michaela Watkins, Dermot Mulroney, Lizzie Caplan, Jamie Lee Curtis, Rob Reiner, Linda… Cardellini, Adam Brady, Brenda Song, and Carla Gugino.
The series was created by Elizabeth Meriwether, along with Brett Baer, Dave Finkel, Jake Guston, Erin O’Malley, Peter Chernin, and Katherine Pope. “New Girl” is produced by Chernin Entertainment in association with 20th Television. The series is distributed by Disney Entertainment.
During its initial broadcast, “New Girl” received several Emmy and Golden Globe nominations, and Deschanel won the Critics’ Choice Television Award for Actress in a Comedy Series.
