The Zooey Deschanel sitcom has not aired a new episode in the UK since the beginning of March, leaving fans questioning when the remainder of its first season will be broadcast.
Speaking to Digital Spy, a spokesperson for Channel 4 explained that New Girl has been on hiatus in order for "additional content to premiere".
"It will be back, but it hasn't been officially scheduled yet so [we] can't be specific [on] dates," the representative said. "We know you guys love New Girl and we love it too.
"The mid-season break is simply to allow for additional Channel 4 content to premiere. Jess (Deschanel) and the guys will be back later in the year, when New Girl will play out in full."
New Girl was renewed for a second season by US broadcaster Fox earlier this month.
Cast member Jake Johnson, who plays Nick, recently suggested that Justin Long could return as Jess's ex-boyfriend Paul in future episodes.
