"New Girl" Season 6 Spoilers: Schmidt's First Name Is.... What?
Schmidt wanted to build his own personal brand, which will become his legacy as well. It took awhile before he got the perfect timing for his big reveal.
Winston eventually learned that Schmidt wanted to get his name back. The latter then slid a nameplate with "Winston Schmidt" on it. It seems like a competition will start between the two Winstons. "This brand will be my legacy, and this is where you come in: I’m going to start using my first name again.” Schmidt said.
The Story Behind The "New Girl" Revelation
According to EPs Brett Baer and Dave Finkel, Schmidt's name has been planned since the 14th episode of "New Girl" Season 1. They said that it was not even the first choice.
Baer and Finkel added that it was series creator, Liz Meriwether who pitched the idea. The only problem is when they will share it with viewers. They said that both actors did not know about the secret until a script reading session.
"We were waiting for the moment when it felt right and most impactful. And we still don’t know if there will be a season 7, so it’s one of those things where if we’re going to do it, we better do it [now]." Finkel told TV Line.
"New Girl" Season 7 Renewal And Cancelation Update
Fox has yet to announce if they will renew the series or not. Cast member Jake Johnson previously hinted that "New Girl" Season 6 might be the end. According to Baer, they are trying to have a better ending that the fans would really like.
Baer and Finkel agreed to the idea that they still have a lot of stories to tell. When asked about their ideas on "New Girl" Season 7, they said that they might "move things in a different direction." "Given where the season finale ends, you can sort of see where we could pick up and where future stories can come from," Finkel said.
