The seven-year journey of the television series “New Girl” will start all over again as actors Zooey Deschanel, Hannah Simone and Lamorne Morris get in front of the microphone for a new iHeartRadio original podcast. Their show -- called Welcome to Our Show -- will have them rewatching the series and sharing their memories, never-before-told stories, and moments and scenes left on the cutting room floor.
“The fans have been flooding my inbox and timelines with requests for behind the scenes intel. Well, here we go!” said Morris. “We’re so pumped that iHeart is giving us this platform to connect with our fans. So dope. All of their questions will be answered….and we also tell weird stories.”
In each episode, Deschanel, Simone and Morris will also play a unique version of the show’s popular game, True American, with made up rules, lots of confusion and loads of laughter. The crew will invite fan favorite cast members, guest stars, producers, writers and more to dissect and dish on a selected episode.
“New Girl fans have a lot of questions about everything from the actual rules of True American to ping pong etiquette with Prince,” said Simone. “Zooey, Lamorne and I have missed each other so much, and I’m so excited that we’ve created a show where we can finally answer those questions and share so many untold crazy ‘New Girl' stories that happened while we made the show!”
The podcast premieres on January 24 with new episodes releasing Mondays.
“Welcome to Our Show will bring listeners the same hilarious and warm-hearted energy that ‘New Girl’ originally brought to its audience just over 10 years ago,” said Will Pearson, Chief Operating Officer of the iHeartPodcast Network. “It was simply one of the funniest and most relatable shows in recent decades and we’re excited to have Zooey, Hannah and Lamorne join the iHeartRadio family to relive the show’s best moments and leave us nostalgic for another laugh in the loft,” he said in the announcement.
