Got no plans? Us, either.
So, why not nestle down for a telly binge and work your way through literally every episode of New Girl, from start to finish?
The much loved sitcom landed on Netflix at the start of this month, and it truly is a tonic for those wanting to escape our current, rather gloomy, reality.
Starring Zooey Deschanel as quirky teacher Jess, the series follows her life as she moves into a LA loft apartment with three men, Nick (Jake Johnson), Schmidt (Max Greenfield), and Winston (Lamorne Morris).
Her childhood best friend Cece (Hannah Simone) - a successful model - often pops in to visit the group, too.
And we watch as Jess navigates work struggles, friendship dramas, and, of course, matters of the heart.
The US series ran on Fox for seven years in total, and is now available to binge in the UK on the streaming platform.
But if that's not your thing, don't worry! The first seven seasons of Modern Family have also landed on Netflix for our viewing pleasure.
Surprise. All 7 seasons of New Girl and the first 7 seasons of Modern Family are now on Netflix.

Modern Family ran for 11 seasons, and it isn't hard to see why it's so cult.
Hailed for being insanely feel-good and relatable, the mock-umentary style sitcom begun airing in 2009, and follows the life of Jay Pritchett (Ed O'Neill) and the three generations of his family living in separate homes, as their lives intertwine.
Key characters include Jay's second wife Gloria Delado-Pritchett (Sofia Vergara) her son Manny Delgado (Rico Rodriguez) and their son together, Joe Pritchett (Jeremy Macguire).
Jay's son from his first marriage - Mitchell Pritchett (Jesse Tyler Ferguson) - is also a central character alongside his husband Cameron Tucker (Eric Stronestreet) and their adopted daughter Lily Tucker Pritchett (Aubrey Anderson-Emmons).
Plus, daughter Claire Dunphy (Julie Bowen) - also from Jay's first marriage - and her husband Phil Dunphy (Ty Burrell) are head of the third family, where they live alongside kids Haley Dunphy (Sarah Hyland), Alex Dunphy (Ariel Winter) and Luke Dunphy (Nolan Gould).
Modern Family landing on Netflix comes not long after the sitcom's emotional final episode aired, leaving fans devastated.
And it turns out lots of people are using it as an opportunity to start again from square one. After all, what else is there going on!?
"Modern family on Netflix is my lockdown dream come true," wrote one fan of the show.
While another added: "B*TCH MODERN FAMILY IS ON NETFLIX I've been waiting for this all ma life since it got out".
