'New Girl' gets a full season order from Fox
The comedy, starring Zooey Deschanel as an awkward single woman who moves in with three single men following a bad breakup, has been given a full season order by the network. Fox has ordered an additional 11 episodes, bringing the season order to 24 episodes.
The announcement came after last week's premiere and Tuesday's second episode scored high ratings.
"New Girl" premiered as Fox's highest rated fall sitcom in 10 years.
"It's great that the audience has responded so positively, and we're confident that even more people will embrace the show -- and more comedy on Fox -- this season," said Fox President of Entertainment Kevin Reilly.
