New Girl takes a modern look at friendship and romance, as a group of five friends attempt to find their respective places in the world, while begrudgingly accepting the responsibilities of adulthood - with often hilarious results.
The series stars Zooey Deschanel as Jess Day; Jake Johnson as Nick Miller; Max Greenfield as Schmidt; Lamorne Morris as Winston Bishop; and Hannah Simone as Cece Schmidt.
As the series' sixth season came to a close, Jess told Nick of her true feelings for him. Also, Winston and Aly (guest star Nasim Pedrad) got engaged, and Cece and Schmidt received news that they are expecting.
When the series returns for its final season, a three-year time jump will have occurred. Jess and Nick are happily together and returning from a whirlwind European book tour; stay-at-home dad Schmidt and working mom Cece are raising their daughter, Ruth; and Winston and Aly are married, with a child on the way.
In addition to Nasim Pedrad, the final season features the return of many of the series' notable guest stars, including Damon Wayans, Jr., Dermot Mulroney, David Walton, Nelson Franklin, Sam Richardson, Jamie Lee Curtis and Rob Reiner.
JB Smoove (Curb Your Enthusiasm) and Tig Notaro (One Mississippi) also make their series debuts in guest-starring roles.
In the Season 7 premiere, "About Three Years Later": picking up approximately three years after the Season 6 finale, Jess and Nick return from a European book tour for "The Pepperwood Chronicles."
Schmidt and Cece celebrate their daughter, Ruth's (Rhiannon and Danielle Rockoff), birthday with a party, where Jess runs into her ex, Russell (guest star Dermot Mulroney).
Meanwhile, Winston and Aly (guest star Nasim Pedrad) try to pick a pregnancy photo.
