New Girl ran on FOX for seven seasons from September 2011 to May 2018. During that time, we all got to know a special group of friends. Those friends were Jessica Day, Schmidt, Winston Bishop, Coach, Cece, and, of course, Nick Miller.
Thanks to great writing and stellar acting from Jake Johnson, Nick Miller has turned into one of the internet’s most beloved sources of memes and other general hilarity. The character’s popularity really started to grow during the coronavirus pandemic. This was due in large part to many people binging the series.
It’s a phenomenon that Johnson himself is surprised about. He told Entertainment Weekly in August 2020, “It’s trippy because Nick Miller must be a slow-moving acquired taste because he was not the one people cared about when we were filming the show. So I wonder if in like 20 years people will be like, ‘I actually really love Nick Miller now.'”
Frankly, we don’t need two decades to know just how much we love this character. He’s easily one of the most absurd “every man” type characters that has ever existed. In hindsight, it’s absolute trash he was never nominated for an Emmy for his performance. However, we doubt Nick Miller would even care about the Emmys, even if he could wear his “Swuit” to the ceremony.
To celebrate a truly one-of-a-kind character, we’ve come up with a list featuring items we think Nick Miller would love. Of course, if you are offended by our choices, we’ll put a dollar in the jar.
