In addition, they have renewed its stand-up comedy series Off The Chain for a fourth season, coming later this year.

Now sister network MTV2 will air New Girl in block marathons, like their other sitcoms like My Wife & Kids, Saved by the Bell, Everybody Hates Chris, Wayans Bros., The Jamie Foxx Show and Kenan & Kel. MTV started airing the series in Fall 2015, in a shared deal with TBS. New Girl is airing weekdays 3-4pm on TBS.
