See the 'New Girl' gang reunited in season 4 promo art

29 July 2014 10:47 AM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent - Inside TV news »

Who’s that girl? It’s… an Idiot.

That’s according to New Girl’s season 4 imagery. EW can exclusively reveal the first one-sheet for the Fox comedy, which finds Jess (Zooey Deschanel) in fine company, including—but not limited to—her ex-boyfriend/roomfriend Nick (Jake Johnson). After enduring a post-breakup couples cruise and deciding to put a pin in their romantic relationship in the season-three finale, the roomfriends are set to navigate the choppy waters of cohabitation when the show returns this fall.

“Roommates. Lovers. Idiots.” This verbiage does beg a few questions: Does deeming Nick and Jess “idiots” serve as a judgment? »

Max Greenfield ('New Girl') explains why Schmidt will never break bad again (Exclusive Video)

17 June 2014 3:31 PM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Season three of "New Girl" began with romantic turmoil for Schmidt (Max Greenfield), who struggled to decide between two women he loved: Cece (Hannah Simone) and Elizabeth (Merritt Wever), whom he dated at the same time before his two-timing was revealed and he lost them both. That was the last we saw of Elizabeth, but is the door open for a possible return in the future? "I sure hope so, if only for the opportunity to have Merritt come back to the show," said Greenfield in our recent video chat (watch below). -Break- Here's an exclusive sneak peek at the 20th Century Fox Television 2014 Emmy campaign He added, "If you're lucky enough to work with actors who are genuinely better than you, your game is so stepped up.

Lindsey McKeon on 'Supernatural' and her upcoming films

16 June 2014 6:43 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

(Cbr) "Supernatural's" Dean Winchester (Jensen Ackles) has had many memorable run-ins with the Grim Reaper, both of the literal and metaphorical variety. The most haunting and harrowing of the literal encounters were the ones that brought him face to face with Tessa (Lindsey McKeon), a reaper who claimed souls for the physical embodiment of Death. They first crossed paths in season two of "Supernatural" when Tessa tried to claim a comatose Dean’s soul. Their subsequent encounters in seasons four and six reminded Dean that the natural order of the universe was complicated and ugly, but necessary. Tessa came to feel the pain of the natural order herself in season nine thanks to the Angel Metatron’s machinations and their impact on the afterlife. The fatefully intertwined Dean and Tessa had their final run-in during the penultimate episode of season nine, with Tessa drawing their saga to a close »

More Women of Color Breaking Through Into Emmys Race

5 June 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Once upon a time, most women on television all looked like Donna Reed. Today, it’s a great time to be a woman of color working in television.

Last season, three women of color — “Scandal’s” Kerry Washington, “Modern Family’s” Sofia Vergara and “Steel Magnolias’” Alfre Woodward — were nominated for Emmys — lead actress in a drama, supporting actress in a comedy and supporting actress in a movie or miniseries, respectively. And this season, the broadcast networks rolled out show after show featuring African- and Asian-Americans and Latinos in lead roles. Half of ABC’s 12 new shows star actors of color.

“Pilot season hasn’t been this diverse in a long time, specifically as we are talking about women,” says Tiffany Smith-Anoa’i, CBS’ vice president of diversity and communications.

That said, there’s still plenty of work to be done.

In 2013, out of six categories featuring actresses — lead and supporting in drama, »

‘New Girl’ Cast Talks Relationships in Season 4, Prince

9 May 2014 3:05 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The cast of Fox’s “New Girl” came together Thursday on the Fox lot two days after the season finale aired to discuss season-three highlights and what the future holds for season four.

“Anyone want to fall in love tonight?” murmured Damon Wayans Jr., doing his best Prince impression. (The legendary rocker was featured as a guest star on the Fox comedy.)

Lamorne Morris said it was crazy how normal Prince was on set.

“That was the thing that was so weird,” added Zooey Deschanel. “You’re expecting, you know, someone that won’t let you look at him or something. Or flies in on like a…”

“Or nothing, just flies in,” Morris interjected.

“He just comes out of his dressing room, and he’s like a normal human being that’s standing there and not flying,” said Deschanel.

Prince is not only a musician and actor, but apparently also an impressive ping-pong player. »

Damon Wayans Jr. Upped to Regular for 'New Girl's' Fourth Season

5 May 2014 4:30 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Damon Wayans Jr. is staying put on New Girl. Though the news comes as little surprise given his appearance in 17 consecutive episodes of the third season, The Hollywood Reporter has learned he's officially assuming castmember status for the upcoming fourth season. The actor's return to the Fox sitcom was quite unconventional. He starred in the 2011 pilot, alongside Zooey Deschanel, Max Greenfield, Jake Johnson and Hannah Simone, but had to pull out of the comedy when it was ordered to series. He originally booked the job in second position to ABC's Happy Endings, which scored a surprise sophomore renewal.

Max Greenfield talks crossing over from 'New Girl' to 'The Mindy Project' -- Exclusive Video

14 April 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent - Inside TV news »

Max Greenfield broke out as New Girl’s endearing d-bag Schmidt, but Tuesday night he’ll pull double duty as he takes on a swaggering, be-scared guest role on The Mindy Project.

Coincidentally, both new episodes deal with the fallout of two break-ups. In New Girl’s “Big News,” Jess (Zooey Deschanel) and Nick (Jake Johnson) have to come clean that they’re just friends again, resulting in a “devastated” Schmidt. As for Mindy, “Think Like a Peter” follows Dr. L (Mindy Kaling) under the tutelage of  her frat bro colleague Peter (Adam Pally), who tries to get the rom-com »

Review: 'New Girl' - 'Mars Landing'

25 March 2014 6:31 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A review of tonight's "New Girl" coming up just as soon as I take the thing that looks like a meth lab and put it in the thing that looks like a pipe bomb... Back when "New Girl" did its post-Super Bowl episode with Prince, I did one of my periodic rants about how happy couples don't ruin sitcoms and that Jess and Nick getting together weren't the root cause of the problems plaguing season 2. And I still feel that way, even after an episode where the two of them broke up because they realized they enjoyed being themselves as friends more than pretending to be other people so they could stay a couple. A whole lot of things went awry all at once this season — Schmidt turning evil, the adjustment period when Coach returned, Winston became completely crazy except when he wasn't, etc. — so that you can't point to »

'New Girl': Linda Cardellini talks humping cars, hooking up with Schmidt in 'Sister II' -- Exclusive First Look

24 February 2014 12:00 PM, PST | EW - Inside TV | See recent - Inside TV news »

Guess who’s tossing knives and stirring up trouble?

Abby Day has been creating a rumpus since dropping her bags for an indefinite stay at the New Girl loft. Now, in an exclusive First Look video, star Linda Cardellini teases the highjinks her wild-child character will get up to on Tuesday’s episode, “Sister II.” Suffice it to say, no vintage automobile or ex-boyfriend will be safe.

Watch Cardellini weigh in on her sweet hook-up with Schmidt (Max Greenfield) — and get hints of how Schmidt’s former lady love Cece (Hannah Simone) will react.

New Girl airs Tuesdays at 9 p. »

'New Girl': Linda Cardellini moves in -- how many people can fit in that loft?

11 February 2014 6:45 PM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

"New Girl" may soon have a serious space issue. With Abby Day (Linda Cardellini) apparently crashing at the loft starting in "Sister," how long until everyone is stuck sleeping on the couch?

If you think about it, the roommates are just lucky that more people aren't living there. Coach (Damon Wayans Jr.) didn't move back in until Schmidt (Max Greenfield) decided to move across the hall. Winston (Lamorne Morris) has his cat, but he has at least refrained from bringing his girlfriend into the mix. And Cece (Hannah Simone) somehow manages to afford a continued independent life.

Still, it's a good thing Nick and Jess (Jake Johnson and Zooey Deschanel) can cohabitate -- because it's getting fairly crowded in that apartment. Who's next? The homeless guy (maybe when he gets his tax refund)? That creepy building manager? Some other random guest star?
