Netflix is losing another beloved sitcom series next month. In recent years the streamer has lost series such as The Office, Parks and Recreation, Friends and many others, as the studios that own the shows have chosen to put them on their own internal services. In April, another acclaimed long-running comedy will follow suit. New Girl is leaving Netflix in mid-April, but at least we know where she’s going once she’s off the service.
Once New Girl leaves Netflix in mid-April, she’ll be heading to Hulu for an arguably more permanent streaming home. Hulu’s monthly newsletter went live on Thursday and confirmed that all seven seasons will be added to the service on April 17. Big fans of New Girl will therefore have to start planning to watch the series on Hulu very soon.
Debuting in 2011, New Girl stars Zooey Deschanel as a woman in need of a new housing situation after discovering her longtime boyfriend’s cheating. She ends up moving into a loft with three guys she doesn’t know and quickly becomes part of the group. The series also stars Jake Johnson, Max Greenfield, Hannah Simone, Lamorne Morris and Damon Wayans Jr.
Created by Elizabeth Merriwether, New Girl ran for seven seasons from 2011 to 2018, for a total of 146 episodes. The series has had numerous high-profile guest stars over the years, including Jamie Lee Curtis, Rob Reiner, Megan Fox, Dermot Mulroney, Justin Long, Lizzy Caplan, Brenda Song, Olivia Munn, Linda Cardellini, Josh Gad, JJ Watt , Taylor Swift and Prince.
With the abandonment of New Girl, Netflix will be very short of acquired sitcoms in the future. The streamer currently has Seinfeld and Dan Harmon’s cult TV Community at his disposal. The latter, however, is not exclusive to Netflix, as other streaming channels also have the complete series available for subscribers.
