After binge-watching every available season of New Girl (numerous times), it’s probably time to find ourselves a new show.

And while the series might have ended over a year ago, Jess (Zooey Deschanel) and the boys from the loft still hold a special place in our heart. So, we’ve compiled a list of TV shows that are just as addicting as the popular series.

From The Mindy Project to Lady Dynamite, read on for 11 shows like New Girl.

5. ‘Lady Dynamite’

Loosely based on the life of and starring funny lady Maria Bamford, Lady Dynamite is a clever show about a woman’s path to self discovery with a touch of awkwardness (and insanity). That sounds like a certain someone we know. *Cough cough,* Jess.

9. ‘How I Met Your Mother’

Friends, roommates, romances and hijinks? We’re pretty sure it doesn’t get much closer to the CW sitcom than this. The series follows Ted Mosby as he narrates the story of how he met the mother to his children, through a series of flashbacks and stories of an entire group of friends.

10. ‘The Good Place’

There are few actresses we love more than Zooey Deschanel, but Kristen Bell definitely comes close. When her character passes away, she ends up in “the Good Place.” Full of twists and turns, the series offers similar underlying themes as Deschanel’s sitcom, but with a lot more death.

11. ‘Friends’

There’s a good chance you’ve already binged this guy (like us). But, you can’t make a list about long-lasting friendships without mentioning the original sitcom based around the concept of exactly that, Friends.
