The last-ever episode of “New Girl” airs tonight, Tuesday, on Fox, and no one is ready for it. Least of all, Jessica Day (Zooey Deschanel) who is going to be the “bearer of truly terrible news” for the gang in the series closer. News that not everyone finds all that bad, actually.

In the clip above, which is exclusive to TheWrap, Jess and Nick (Jake Johnson) gather Cece (Hannah Simone), Schmidt (Max Greenfield) and Winston (Lamorne Morris) together at the loft to announce that — wait for it — they are being evicted within 24 hours and need to say goodbye to the home they have all (at one time or another) shared.

“Brace yourselves! Nick and I are moving out of the loft,” Jess says.


“That’s it?” Winston says, and it appears Cece and Schmidt are just as underwhelmed. “That’s what you called us here for? Why do you always think like a character in ‘The Baby-Sitters Club’?” Schmidt questions.

OK, it sounds like this is going to be a rough finale — both for those who are and are not upset about the upcoming move.

Here is Fox’s official logline for the series finale, titled “Engram Pattersky” (we have no idea why): As Nick and Jess find out they are evicted from the loft, the gang takes a tour down memory lane, which includes a final round of “True American.” Story by Dave Finkel & Brett Baer; teleplay by Elizabeth Meriwether; directed by Erin O’Malley.

Watch the clip above.

The series finale of “New Girl” will air with an hour of back-to-back episodes tonight, Tuesday, at 9/8c on Fox.
