After a season of romantic tension, surprise make-outs, and even more surprising sex, New Girl
's Nick and Jess finally decided to give their relationship a real shot during the season finale. So what's up next for the roommates-turned-lovers now that they've cruised off into the sunset?
Zimbio recently chatted with New Girl
co-showrunner David Finkel during the Austin Television Festival in Austin, Texas, and he shared his insights into Nick and Jess' potential future as a couple. Hint: Don't expect a happily ever after right away.
"We've ended it in a sweet spot. There are so many questions up in the air. Nick and Jess are off somewhere together, but is it a good thing or is it a bad thing?" Finkel mused. "They're not well people, so I gotta believe for comedy's sake that it's not going to go great."
The New Girl co-showruner continued, "They have a lot to learn. If they are going to end up together they have so much growing to do as people. I think we did a good job in creating some very flawed characters and that's bringing about a lot of really good arcs. And I think we have a long way to go to figure out how these people should end up."
No matter how this whole Nick and Jess romance shakes out, though, Finkel promises that New Girl will always strive the keep things real amidst all of the comedy. "I think one of the tenets of this show that we really adhere to is. Are we being as honest as we can be? We can go as broad and as wacky are we want as long as at the core of it there's an honesty."
