Earlier this year fans got great news when it was announced that New Girl was getting a seventh and final season, and while we have yet to see the new season, the cast has officially wrapped filming.
After seven years together, the cast of New Girl, which is made up of Zooey Deschanel (as Jessica Day), Jake Johnson (as Nick Miller), Max Greenfield (as Schmidt), Lamorne Morris (as Winston) and Hannah Simone (as Cece Parekh), is done with filming, and some of their goodbyes are too much to handle.
“After 7 years, 146 episodes, at least six weddings, two funerals, a gravity defying badger, a cat named Ferguson, a douchebag jar, a Bollywood dance routine and an apartment that changed my life… it’s over,” Simone captioned a video of the now-empty apartment 4B. “Breaking down the New Girl set causes breakdowns. Tell me your favourite weird clown moment below. #4Dforever.”

Simone’s on-set husband, Greenfield, also shared a short, but sweet, message about the end of the comedy writing, “Final day shooting #NewGirl Thank you to all the incredible people that worked on this show and to all those who watched it!”
Morris shared a behind-the-scenes photo from his last day of shooting as well, and man, are we going to miss this cast and show. “It is finished. Well folks. It looks like this is it. New Girl is officially over. To all the fans that have supported us throughout the years I say Thank you! This show has been my life for the past 7 years and I couldn’t have spent it with a better cast, that includes Furguson. I Love you All!!!” he wrote. “Side note. ReRuns are real. Keep watching stay tuned for the spinoff called Furgies world. It’s a show where Furguson just licks himself for 30 minutes straight with No commercial interruption. #newgirlfinale #4D.”
While we are so happy that there is another season heading our way next year, it’s bittersweet to see the cast saying goodbye to the Loft, each other and the crew that made this hilarious comedy possible for seven seasons. On the bright side, there are new episodes coming, and re-runs are real… take it from Winston — err, we mean Morris.
New Girl will return for its seventh season sometime in 2018 on FOX.
