New Girl will be leaving most Netflix regions soon, but the United States appears to be safe for now.
New Girl, created by Elizabeth Meriwether has become one of Netflix's most popular sitcoms. To critical acclaim, the series was aired from 2011 to 2018.
For many Netflix regions, you’ve only just received New Girl again (or for the first time) in recent years. The show was removed from many countries, but relicensed in more than a dozen other countries by Netflix up to early 2020. For example, New Girl was relicensed by the UK in May 2020.
Netflix Australia and the United Kingdom are two of the countries that received removal notices from New Girl beginning January 1, 2022. It’s also leaving European regions such as France, Germany, and Italy as well as Nordic countries and Asian regions such as Malaysia and the Philippines too.
Navigate to the New Girl Page to see if there is a notice. You’ll see a banner, like the one below, stating “Last day to watch on Netflix: 31 December”.
This move comes as a result of the removal of several 20th Century Fox TV shows that were removed from Netflix. The shows will be available for renewed on January 1, 2019. It seems that Disney has decided to take down their most important properties.
There are also other removals that will be made for the January 1st:
For those who are not in the United States, you will have the last chance to watch all Christmas episodes on Netflix. Our recently published guide to Christmas episodes can be found here.
Disney now owns 20th Century Fox, and operates Disney+ almost in all of its regions. New Girl has been a part of Disney+’s Star lineup for a number of months now and will remain there.
New Girl will be on Netflix for a while longer, but it is unlikely that they will.
We had previously predicted that New Girl would be leaving in April 2021 but that removal didn’t come to pass thankfully. Instead, we’re now predicting that Netflix US will lose New Girl in April 2022.
