Fans of New Girl are already missing the show, but if you liked New Girl, here are a few other shows you might enjoy.
After seven seasons of wacky and hilarious comedy, this show came to an end in 2018. There are plenty of other equally enjoyable shows to binge in our mourning of the departure of New Girl for those who are re-watching this popular show and missing Jessica Day and the gang from the loft.
This list will help you focus your binge watching efforts if you’re looking for a different cast of funny characters or an obscure sitcom. Fans of New Girl should definitely start watching these shows if they enjoyed New Girl.
As of the 11th of October 2020, Richard Keller has updated the information below.
In New Girl, the female-driven sitcom was scripted and improvised in equal measure. People in their 20s and 30s who weren’t sure where they wanted to go got a fresh look thanks to the new perspective. These other shows have a similar feel now that New Girl has ended.
15. Two Broke Girls (2011-2017)
This three-camera sitcom deviated from the norm, even for CBS. Innuendo about drugs and sex abound, and this isn’t just a tale of two young adults trying to make it in hipster Brooklyn.
The show, which is a cross between Odd Couple and Alice, stars Kat Dennings and Beth Behrs as two complete opposites who find themselves living together. While the focus of the show was initially on the duo, the stories of the other eccentric characters in Two Broke Girls eventually expanded.
14. Shrill (2019 – )
OnSaturday Night Live, Aidy Bryant has been a mainstay for a long time. She utilized her bubbly radiance from that show in Hulu’s Shrill.
As seen in the sitcom, Annie, played by Aidy Bryant, is eager for a major change in her life. She, on the other hand, does not wish to alter her physical appearance in any way. On several occasions, she has to deal with dreadful ex-boyfriends and abusive bosses, all while trying to care for her sick parents.
13. Young Hungry (2014-2018)
Hannah Montana wasn’t the only one to abandon her adolescent persona after the Disney series ended. Emily Osment, who plays her on-screen best friend on Freeform’s Young & Hungry, also made the same decision.
Osment plays Gabi, a Florida transplant living in San Francisco as Josh Kaminski’s personal chef in the traditional sitcom. After a one-night stand with Josh, Gabi’s life becomes complicated. Throughout the show’s run, their on-and-off relationship serves as the underpinning plot point.
12. Love Life (2020 – )
When HBO Max first debuted in May of 2020, it included a special called Love Life. The show is anthology-based rather than traditional. Anna Kendrick plays Darby Carter, the show’s central character, in the film.
Darby’s life and relationships are the focus of each episode of the romantic comedy. Even the recurring characters and guests in the show go through the motions of figuring out their ideal date and future relationships in order to achieve their goals.
11. Friends (1994-2004)
NBC debuted a simple sitcom in 1994 about six young people navigating their way through New York City. The show may have left an impression on some viewers. You can find it on Facebook under the name Friends.
This now-legendary sitcom, which ran for ten seasons, has had a big influence on a lot of the shows on this list. It’s a sitcom with a traditional structure, but all of the characters changed from the first episode to the last. Friends continues to have an impact on other shows even though it debuted over a quarter of a century ago.
10. Jane The Virgin (2014-2019)
This five-season comedy series has an IMDb rating of 7.8/10, which is quite good. This show will appeal to viewers who enjoy a quirky female lead. Show follows Gina Rodriguez’s young Catholic woman who discovers she was accidentally artificially inseminated, with Gina as the star.
This is a great show that’s funny and good for you. For those who loved Jessica Day, this show should deliver plenty of laughs, with the same goofy female lead and tons of episodes to watch and revisit.
9. Chewing Gum (2015-2017)
Due to the short run of this underrated comedy series, viewers will be able to enjoy all of its delightful entertainment in a single sitting. Friends, family, and love are all major themes in this series, which follows Tracy around her neighborhood.
Because of the show’s quirky and endearing cast, you’ll want to watch it from beginning to end. The fact that the show is British adds an extra layer of intrigue for fans of classic British comedies, while also keeping things fresh and exciting for newcomers.
8. Community (2009-2015)
This underappreciated sitcom has a devoted cult following, but it’s one that everyone should see. The 4D crew will be a hit with fans of the loft. This show centers on a group of young adults attending a Colorado community college.
Shows starring Joel McHale, Alison Brie, and Donald Glover are always entertaining, and this one is no exception. With an IMDb rating of 8.5/10, viewers should binge-watch the entire six-season run right away.
7. Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt (2015-2019)
Ellie Kemper, who plays the impressionable Kimmy Schmidt, stars in this critically acclaimed comedy-drama. She relocates to New York City to begin a new life after escaping a doomsday cult. Finding a normal life can be difficult, but it’s also full of humor and goodheartedness when you do.
There’s an incredible cast in this “finding yourself” sitcom, as well as content that’s both funny and universal. Kimmy Schmidt will satisfy all of Jessica Day’s longings on this show, which is sure to make everyone laugh.
6. Undateable (2014-2016)
Another show that deserved a lot more attention than it got is This Is Us. The dating scene in adulthood is a struggle for a womanizer, his sister, his bartender roommate, and three other friends.
This show has all of the awkward and relatable dating scenes from New Girl in three seasons to binge.
Many of us haven’t seen this offbeat and amusing show, but it’s well worth a look.
5. Don’t Trust The B—- In Apartment 23 (2012-2013)
New York City party girl Chloe is played by beautiful and talented Krysten Ritter. She has to manage her new naive small-town roommate and her male best friend, both of whom have weak morals and a penchant for causing mischief.
This sitcom is one of a kind in the world of comedies, and it features a fascinating cast of characters. It features two strong female leads, as well as the typical humor of adolescence and friendship in this time period. There are two seasons to watch of this show, and both are hilarious.
4. Happy Endings (2011-2013)
Chicago serves as the backdrop for this romantic comedy series, which centers on six young adults as they attempt to navigate adulthood. This already sounds a lot like the gang from New Girl, and Damon Wayans Jr., the handsome actor who played Coach on television, will star in this new show.
Quirky and relatable, this show tells the story of a group of young adults trying to make it through adulthood while juggling relationships, friendships, and life in general. We had a lot of fun watching the guys from the loft figure things out, and now we can enjoy the same experience with this show.
3. The Mindy Project (2012-2017)
A quirky and relatable female lead will enjoy this show as well. Mindy Kaling stars as a young Ob/Gyn doctor trying to strike a balance between her personal and professional lives.
Friends, lovers, and hilarious mishaps will all play a part in this show as Jessica Day tries to figure out her own life. Mindy Kaling is also a saint, and her abilities as an actress and producer will ensure that the show’s audience is entertained.
2. Broad City (2014-2019)
This comedy is underappreciated, with an IMDb score of 8.4/1o. Following the daily routines of two New York City women, this show explores the mundane aspects of everyday life while also showcasing how ridiculous and hilarious these two characters make everything seem.
OurNew Girlgang fans will enjoy following the antics of these two ladies, who seem eerily similar to those of the mishaps caused by those in the loft. Of course, having a few more outlandish and daring female leaders is always welcome.
1. Friends From College (2017-)
Fans will have to wait a long time for new seasons of this show, as there are none on the list. This new comedy-drama centers on a group of former college friends who have since drifted apart. When their paths cross again twenty years later, things get complicated, outrageous and hilarious.
Many well-known actors appear in this show, which is sure to make you laugh as well as cringe at the same time. Fans of New Girl will enjoy this show, which has already aired two seasons and is available to watch right now.
