Zooey Deschanel’s dyed-in-the-wool liberal Jess is going to fly through Donald Trump’s first (and last?) term as POTUS.
New Girl‘s upcoming seventh and final season will pick up three years after the events of last month’s Season 6 finale, our sister site Deadline reports. The game-changing twist was apparently part of a hail-mary pitch series creator Liz Meriwether made to Fox execs last week when the series was on the verge of being cancelled.
The network ultimately commissioned an eight-episode farewell season that, per Deadline, will span an entire year and feature “major milestones for all main characters… including a big one in the series finale.” – TV Line
New Girl has quickly become my favorite comedy to binge (it’s neck and neck with The Office and Parks & Rec) so this news is literal music to my ears. Jess, Nick, Schmidt, Cece & Winston have turned into one of my all time favorite group of TV friends, and while the season 6 finale could have served as a series finale, I’m glad they feel they have more stories to tell. Season 7 will only be eight episodes and will take place three years in the future, but I have faith that creator Elizabeth Meriwether will keep the laughs coming in droves.

The last time we checked in on the upcoming season of Fargo, a balding Ewan McGregor looked noticeably spooked while eating at a diner after a cop played by Carrie Coon walked in (I bet that’s a sentence you never thought you’d read). Now that we’re under a month away from the premiere, we get a similarly timed promo that introduces us to what should be most of the main players for season 3. While the faces are changing, it’s nice to see those wonderful accents and that excessive violence is staying the same. Season 3 premieres April 19th.
HBO teased us with a teaser a month ago for the new season of True Detective, but now we get a full trailer with dialogue and internal conflicts and fancy tracking shots. I’m excited for this season because I’m glad they decided to take up a different setting and storyline. It’s still cops going after bad guys, but the first season of True Detective was one of the most depressing things I’ve ever watched. It was great, but I don’t know if my psyche could handle another season of that. Season 2 is set in LA and the possibilities are endless for filming there. The cast is pretty dynamite too, and I have a feeling Taylor Kitsch is going to be the show stealer by the time the season’s over. June 21st can’t come soon enough.
DC Comics is coming in hot today, releasing a first look for ‘Supergirl’, their new show on CBS and ‘Legends of Tomorrow’, their new show on the CW Network. ‘Legends of Tomorrow’ looks like it will primarily feature The Flash and Arrow, but there’s an entire case of villains and heroes that are listed on the show’s IMDB page. Rip Hunter (sneaky awesome name) is at the forefront of this massive group of heroes and villains, as he’s a time traveler who brings all these mofo’s together. That’s pretty much where my comic book knowledge starts and ends, but if it’s good TV, I’ll watch it. Supergirl, on the other hand, seems like a mix of The Devil Wears Prada and Superman, and I’m 100% on board. It helps that Supergirl (Melissa Benoist) is easy on the eyes, but it also seems about time Supergirl got a fair shot at becoming a part of pop culture. We’ve seen what Superman can do a million times over, so why not give Supergirl a chance. Plus, Kara Zor-El is a badass name. Both shows are scheduled to debut in late 2015.
