Zooey Deschanel will continue to delight fans for a fifth season of the hit Fox series, New Girl
. The show’s producers had jumped the gun even before confirmation from Fox as production on season 5 has already begun in preparation of Deschanel’s maternity leave.
The beauty in bangs announced in January that she is expecting her first child with fiancé and Hollywood producer, Jacob Pechenik.
We can’t blame them for being optimistic as the show continues to build a devoted fan base and even garnered a 100% critics rating on the Tomatometer for the season 4 on Rotten Tomatoes.
Our own optimism prompted us to look into the future as well as we created a list of the top five things to look forward to about New Girl season 5
1. Extended special guest stars like John Cho and Taran Killam.
Perhaps to soften the blow of losing Damon Wayans Jr. (yet again
), it’s been confirmed that the show will bring back Saturday Night Live
’s Taran Killam and introduce Selfie
actor John Cho, as a love interest for Jess.
2. The continued spawning of New Girl Pinterests.
to straight up fan love for the show
, like many guys out there secretly pining to do to Jess’ sweater…this show must be pinned!
3. Fashion inspiration.
No argument here, New Girl
has some seriously enviable style. So much so there’s an entire blog
devoted to its adorableness!
4. Playing find the baby!
We’ll have a chance to see how creative the show’s producers can get at hiding Deschanel’s growing baby bump. It’s been revealed that the star’s pregnancy will not be written into the storyline
. And while the producers cleverly kept the cameras rolling after the end of season 4, Deschanel is already starting to show. It’s always amusing to see a show’s attempt at hiding an actress’ protruding belly… suddenly so many plants get purchased and randomly carried around.
5. More hilarious Schmidt lines such as:
“You were denied a cell phone because you have the credit score of a homeless ghost.”
“The economy stinks, bees are dying and movies are pretty much all sequels now.”
“Are you cooking a frittata in a sauce pan? What is this – prison?”
How do you feel about the New Girl
news? Is it time to put on your favourite ‘party Jess dress’ and celebrate? Or have you had enough manic pixie dream girl in your primetime already?
