New Girl Season 5: Megan Fox Fills in for Zooey Deschanel, Damon Wayans Jr. Leaves the Show, New Season to be Out in January!

New Girl Season 5 is finally ready to hit the television screen January next year. It’s been a long year for fans and they were desperately waiting for the new season to be released. The new season has a lot of things for the fans.

VC Post has announced that New Girl Season 5 will hold the key to the future and show whether Nick (Jake Johnston) and Jess (Zooey Deschanel) finally decide to stay together or whether they go their separate ways. Season 5 will also throw light on Cece (Hannah Simone) and Schmidt (Max Greenfield) as they decide to start a new life together.

This is not all, New Girl Season 4 saw Winston (Lamorne Morris) finally getting his dream job and becoming a police officer. The upcoming season will see how he lives up to the expectations of his dream job and fares in it.

Season 5 of New Girl had made quite a buzz because fans were not happy with the fact that Megan Fox was filling in for Zooey Deschanel while she is away on maternity leave. The fans threatened to boycott the show and not watch it until Zooey Deschanel came back. Crossmap revealed that Megan Fox isn’t going to play the role of Jess. Rather she is going to be brought in to the show as a completely new character.

Megan Fox is going to play the role of Reagan in New Girl Season 5. She is a sales representative at a medical firm and rents out Jess’s room for a while. Even though there have been some very rigid views about Megan Fox filling in for Zooey Deschanel temporarily, Max Greenfield has revealed to Yibada that Megan Fox is a laugh riot.

Max Greenfield said that Megan Fox has perfect comic timing and she fits into the group very easily. They had all been a little skeptical about how the chemistry would be with Zooey Deschanel not there to lend her quirky charisma, but they were surprised by how amazing Megan Fox is.

Max Greenfield also added that the fans will be in for a treat when New Girl Season 5 returns. They have already shot around four episodes with her are having a ball while shooting for her.

He added that sometimes it gets difficult to manage a straight face when Megan Fox is delivering her lines. Greenfield even responded that there isn’t going to be an issue if Megan Fox is made a series regular.

Liz Meriwether, the creative brain behind the laugh riot of a show has also revealed that she was scared about the consequences of taking Megan Fox in and going ahead to shoot the episodes for the new season without Zooey Deschanel, who is such a huge part of the series.

Liz Meriwether said that the gamble of bringing Megan Fox in as Reagan has paid off well. Meriwether added that she couldn’t believe that such a beautiful person could be as funny as Megan Fox is.

Megan Fox is perfect as Reagan and she comes in and completely changes the dynamic of the show. Reagan’s character adds a new dimension to the show and with Jess’s character away on jury duty the creators get a chance to explore the other characters like Schmidt, Cece and Winston.
