The studio and the network [basically] said the same thing to us: “We probably won’t have an answer [about a seventh season] by the time the [finale] airs… and you should be prepared to provide a conclusion that can go in either direction.
I’m hoping for a Season 7 for a lot of reasons, but [seeing Schmidt is like as a dad] definitely one of them. We had such a blast watching the Bridezilla stuff and seeing him be a groom in Season 5. And the idea of seeing him as a Helicopter Daddy is hilarious.
On what New Girl Season 7 would look like if there is a last-minute turnaround:
We have options in a potential Season 7 to keep some level of [excitement] in that relationship. I’m aware [that] we don’t want to yank the audience’s chain. There’s only so much back and forth you can do. But we’ve been talking about creative solutions to that dynamic and how to move forward in a way that wouldn’t just be like a one-directional approach.
Will FOX reverse its decision to cancel New Girl? Season 7 coming this fall? Or will the cancellation stick? Stay tuned…
