Hulu & Peacock to share ‘New Girl’ after Netflix license expires

New Girl

US comedy series New Girl is moving streaming homes next month, leaving Netflix after a decade to land on both Hulu and Peacock in a shared agreement between the two services.

The streamers are both picking up all 146 episodes of the sitcom, which was produced by Chernin Entertainment in association with 20th Television, and ran for seven seasons on Fox, from 2011 to 2018. New Girl is distributed by Disney Entertainment.

Netflix took streaming rights to New Girl in 2013, but with the licensing deal now expired the sitcom becomes the latest Disney-produced title to move to Hulu, following other 20th Television shows including Arrested Development and American Horror Story.

The show follows Jess Day (Zooey Deschanel) who needs a new place to live after a bad break up. An online search leads her to a loft apartment – and three single guys she’s never met before.

Nick (Jake Johnson), a law school dropout turned bartender; Schmidt (Max Greenfield), a hustling young professional who’s pretty proud of his own abs, Winston (Lamorne Morris), and an intensely competitive former athlete.

Rounding out the group is Jess’ childhood best friend, Cece (Hannah Simone), a model with a killer deadpan. The fivesome realize they need each other more than they thought they would and end up forming a charmingly dysfunctional family.

The series was created by Elizabeth Meriwether, who executive produced along with Brett Baer, Dave Finkel, Jake Kasdan, Erin O’Malley, Peter Chernin and Katherine Pope.
