If you've been missing New Girl since it went off the air in 2018, Zooey Deschanel has got your back. She, along with Hannah Simone, and Lamorne Morris (who played Jess, Cece, and Winston, respcetively), return with a rewatch podcast called Welcome To Our Show.

Allowing you to peek behind the scenes of apartment 4D, every Monday, a new episode will feature an inside look at how the episodes came together, funny anecdotes, and how they scored epic actors for iconic episodes. (Remember the PRINCE party??)

"New Girl fans have a lot of questions about everything from the actual rules of True American to ping pong etiquette with Prince," Simone tells EW. "Zooey, Lamorne, and I have missed each other so much, and I'm so excited that we've created a show where we can finally answer those questions and share so many untold crazy New Girl stories that happened while we made the show!"

Welcome To Our Show joins a great list of already existing celebrity rewatch podcasts of your favourite shows from the past 20 years. Here's a list of some podcasts that should definitely be loaded into your podcast queue.

The Office Ladies

Actors Jenna Fischer (Pam) and Angela Kinsey (Angela) host this documentary-style deep dive into The Office (US) that has gained cult-like status since it went off the air in 2013. Gems include details like Rainn Wilson, who plays stone-face beet farmer oddball Dwight Shrute, cries at the drop of a hat. Awww, monkey!

Fake Doctors, Real Friends

Hosted by real life BFFs Zach Braff and Donald Faison, the Scrubs alums return to host weekly break-downs of every episode of the beloved hospital comedy.

Parks & Recollection

Parks and Recreation’s Rob Lowe and Alan Yang (writer/director) host the only Parks and Rec podcast that will explain how Lil Sebastian came to be a thing. Of course, other details will be discussed, but really, this is the only detail that matters.

It's Always Sunny

It's hard to believe It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia is still on the air after 15 seasons, but we are grateful for it. None more so than stars Charlie Day, Glenn Howerton and Rob McElhenney, who host the official podcast of the show, going back to episode one in 2005 and offering behind-the-scenes fodder, memories, and why the show has endured this long.

Kumail Nanjiani’s The X-Files Files 

You might not think that comedy, drama, and ripped-superhero actor Kumail Nanjiani would be the obvious choice to host a podcast about '90s hit sci-fi show The X Files, but the man loves what he loves, and that infectious adoration for all things Mulder and Scully seeps into this podcast.

Drama Queens

Hosted by One Tree Hill alums Bethany Joy, Sophia Bush and Hillary Burton, the three women who played leads as Haley, Brooke and Peyton on the iconic early-aughts show, they offer fresh perspectives on the show’s storylines.

Welcome to the OC, Bitches

Hosted by Rachel Bilson, who played Summer Roberts, and Melinda Clarke, who portrayed the ruthless Julie Cooper, features lots of star power in their guest speakers, like Josh Schwartz, creator of both The OC and Gossip Girl.

The West Wing Weekly

The West Wing Weekly is an American podcast hosted by Hrishikesh Hirway and Joshua Malina. Although no new episodes have been created since 2020, the 4-year run of the podcast featured series creator Aaron Sorkin, director Tommy Schlamme, and series actors Martin Sheen, Rob Lowe, Bradley Whitford, Richard Schiff, Allison Janney, Janel Moloney, Marlee Matlin, and Dulé Hill, longtime series writer-producers Eli Attie and Lawrence O'Donnell.

Clear Eyes, Full Hearts

This Friday Night Lights rewatch vehicle is helmed by the actors who played Billy Riggins and wife Mindy Colette.
