New Girl series 1 part 2 returning to UK
Written by : thetvking published Thursday 7th June 2012
The wait is almost over, New Girl is returning to the UK for the 2nd part of series 1. After what seems like an eternity, New Girl will return with brand new episodes this June. However not on Channel 4 but E4!
Channel 4 said: "we’re constantly looking at what’s best for our content across the portfolio of channels and we could see that the profile of New Girl was skewing significantly younger than the C4 slot average and was more in line with the E4 target demographic. E4 seems the ideal UK home for Jess and the guys, hence the change that should see them move across in June."
New Girl stars Zooey Deschanel, Jack Johnson, Max Greenfield and Lamorne Morris had figures in excess of 1.6million each week and regularly topping the most watched shows on 40D. After-all it did air Friday 16 March at 8.30pm on Channel 4.
That's right the best new US comedy has jumped ship to the young sexier E4. Which fits the show's audience perfectly. New Girl returns to the UK with Episode 12 "The Landlord". Catch-up with episode 11 to get you in the mood for Jess.
So the UK air date for New Girl season 1 part 2 will be in July 2012. New Girl has been picked up for a second series by Fox in the US after being a hit, so be prepared to see plenty more of Jess.
