Grab the douchebag jar!!
In this day of television, it seems that networks are constantly pulling the plug on our favorite shows way too early. But with death comes rebirth, as Fox announced that New Girl is officially returning for a fifth season!
The hit comedy starring Zooey Deschanel has already begun shooting the upcoming season — mostly to accommodate its leading lady's pregnancy!
Normally, the show wouldn't start filming again until the summer, but the producers decided to shoot a handful of season five episodes early so Zooey can take some time off when her baby comes.

Season four of New Girl, which still has a few episodes yet to air, marked a comeback this year for the comedy with some of its best episodes to date! Series creator Liz Meriwether had this to say:
"I have been having a lot of fun in the writers' room this year putting some of the relationship drama aside and just focusing on making the stories as funny as possible. Surprisingly, telling stories about smaller events in the characters' lives has actually deepened the relationships on the show. It turns out the best way to tell a story about a relationship is to not tell a story about a relationship. I'm going to get that quote tattooed to my lower back later."
Sounds like they found their second wind!
