New girl season 5: Know About The Characters Development

Season 5 was very much about the development of character’s relationships and setting them on different paths. There were some cliffhangers at the end of season 5 that told that the show would be returning for a season 6. Let’s see what happened for various characters in season 5.

Season 5 was a whole upside down for Jess as she was trying new things professionally and personally. First, she got the role of a new principal, which was a significant achievement in her teaching career but not being able to handle the work pressure caused her to leave the job and become a teacher at a school where children play with chickens.


At the beginning of the season, we could see Jess as she was off for her jury duty, and in her dating life, she ended with the handsome doctor Sam. However, she is also confused if she still feels for Nick.

We saw Nick as less of a mature and illogical character in the show. His stubbornness leads to his humorous character, but season 5 was a bit of change for Nick as his character was developing and he learned responsibilities. For example, when he and Schmidt own a bar together, he has to take responsibility and Excel in his new role. Nick also fell in love with Reagan (Megan Fox) by the end of season 5 and decided to follow her to New Orleans for three months.
