More information to fill the lists for cancelled shows of 2012 and renewed shows of 2012. In this case, one that only needed the official confirmation, since everybody already knew it was getting the callback. Fox renews New Girl for a second season of the darling sitcom of the year and this should surprise no one.
The order did not come alone, since Fox has ordered a second season New Girl, alongside Raising Hope getting a third season and Glee a fourth. It was announced today by Kevin Reilly, President of Entertainment, Fox Broadcasting Company.
“Over the past season, New Girl has become the hottest new appointment series for young adults; Raising Hope has established itself as one of the smartest and most unique offbeat comedies on television; and Glee has continued its success as a genre-defying, global cultural phenomenon,” said Reilly. “All three of these comedies add a fresh and distinctive flavor to our Tuesday nights, and I’m really happy to bring them back to our air next season.”
Currently in its first season, NEW GIRL is the No. 1 new series among Adults 18-34 and the No. 2 new scripted series among Adults 18-49. The show stars Zooey Deschanel as a school teacher who moved in with three single guys, and their new friendships changed their lives in unexpected ways. The Golden Globe-nominated series also stars Jake Johnson, Max Greenfield, Lamorne Morris and Hannah Simone. In the all-new “Normal” episode airing tomorrow, Tuesday, April 10 (9:00-9:31 PM ET/PT), Jess (Deschanel) invites Russell (guest star Dermot Mulroney) to spend the weekend at the loft.
