'Who's that girl?' Whoever she is, she won't be on Netflix for much longer!

"New Girl," the cult Fox series starring Zooey Deschanel, Hannah Simone, Max Greenfield, Jake Johnson, Lamorne Morris, and later Megan Fox, has accumulated a post-air shelf life on Netflix for a decade. However, "New Girl" will soon be moving on to new pastures; the series, which aired originally from 2011 until 2018, will be leaving Netflix next month.

Netflix has experienced a difficult year. The once-leading streaming service has faced a decline in popularity following massive employee layoffs, multiple show cancellations, and unpopular efforts to reduce password sharing.

Inside Netflix's Controversial Efforts To Reduce Password Sharing

The Blast has covered many elements of Netflix's difficult year in 2022.

Last month, the streaming service was met with a great deal of pushback after a list of password-sharing stipulations went viral on social media. Efforts to crack down on password sharing have begun to be implemented by the company internationally, but Netflix has yet to roll out any type of plan for the United States yet.

Forbes Australia's original report about the rules shared that users were required to log into their account from their primary WiFi network once a month. Failure to do so would result in the user being locked out and unable to access their account.

This rule would still apply even if users were away from their primary account for any given period of time, such as if they were away on vacation. Users would then be issued a temporary log-in code that would be valid for seven days.

An unnamed source from Netflix later responded to the viral conversation and revealed the stipulation list had been released and posted to their official Help Center in error.

"For a brief time yesterday, a help center article containing new information only applicable to Chile, Costa Rica, and Peru, went live in other countries," the source shared. "We have since updated it."

Netflix has also announced plans for a "paid sharing option," which is set to be released by the first quarter end of 2023.

"While our terms of use limit use of Netflix to a household, we recognize this is a change for members who share their account more broadly. So we've worked hard to build additional new features that improve the Netflix user experience including the ability for members to review which devices are using their account and to transfer a profile to a new account," a CBS News report read, per The Blast's report on the viral news.

'New Girl' Will Be Heading To A New Streaming Platform In Mid-April!

"New Girl" stans needn't worry; the show will soon be able to stream elsewhere after leaving Netflix!

According to Deadline, every single "New Girl" episode- 146 to be exact- will be able to stream via Hulu and Peacock!

The Disney-Entertainment produced series isn't the first series produced by the company to move to Hulu. The outlet also reports that 20th Television series like "Arrested Development," "American Horror Story," "American Crime Story," and "Pose" also moved streaming libraries to Hulu following the expiration of Netflix's partnership deal with Disney Entertainment.

"New Girl" will be available to stream on both platforms on April 17th.
