In this article, we will have an insight into the real lives of the New Girl cast.
The New Girl, created by Elizabeth Meriwether, is about a girl Jess, a middle-school teacher who moves into an apartment with three men after she finds her boyfriend with another woman and breaks up with him. She lives with three guy roommates, and the story revolves on all four of them, their friendships, love, careers, highs, and lows that they face in their life. They are Jessica Day, Nick Miller, Schmidt, and Wilson; eventually, Jess’s Indian childhood friend Cece also joins the gang, and the character change of each of them, as the season pass, is something you can connect with. Their friendships, and how all of them are always there for each other, no matter what happens, is one of the best things I loved about the series.
