New Girl was a hugely popular show when it aired. However, the show still has its charm and still manages to gain more fans every day as a newer audience watches it.

Jessica Day: Her Story
The show portrays Jess as a school teacher who teaches sixth-grade students. She moves to a new place with three guys who posted an advertisement for a spare room to rent. The guys named Nick Miller, Coach, and Schmidt are a little doubtful at first about giving her the room. However, they eventually agree to it and welcome her to live with them. As the story moves on, the friendship between the guys and Jess becomes stronger with time. They are always there to help her in times of crisis in her life. But the most significant role is played by Nick, who is often going a step further to help out and be there for Jess.
There is that one moment in the beginning when Nick leaves a girl with whom he was about to have drinks and went to be with Jess along with the other guys. This might not seem much at first, but it was a start. Later on, in season 2, Jess and Nick have their first kiss together. Moreover, by the finale of season 2, they eventually decide to be in a relationship with each other.
But their relationship does not last long and comes to an end in season 3. After that, as the show progresses, Jess moves and dates other guys. Coming on to season 5 of the show, we see Jess going on dates with some other guy. But her romance with that guy comes to an end when he breaks up with her for some other girl. But before leaving, he points out to Jess that she still has feelings for Nick.
Who Did Jess Finally End Up With?
As we move on to the sixth season of the series, we see Jess meeting another guy who she eventually starts to date. Although, things end for Jess and his boyfriend in a hilarious way. It turns out that both of them have relatives back in Massachusetts. This takes them to the realization that they are long related cousins and end their relationship in that instance. On the other hand, Nick seems to have the time of his life with his new girlfriend Reagan.
However, as we get closer to the end of season six of the show, we see Nick having second thoughts. He realizes by the end that he still loves Jess and wants to be with others. In the finale episode of season 6, Jess and Nick share a rather romantic and long-awaited kiss and become a couple once again.
