A year after Zooey Deschanel filed for divorce from Ben Gibbard, the pair’s marriage is officially over.

The New Girl star, 32, and Death Cab for Cutie crooner, 36, were divorced on Dec. 12, according to court documents filed in Los Angeles Superior Court.

According to the papers, “Unhappy and irreconcilable differences have arisen between the parties, which have caused the irremediable breakdown of their marriage. There is no possibility that counseling or mediation could save the marriage.”

Neither Deschanel nor Gibbard have spoken at length about the split – which was made official in Oct. 2011 – but shortly after the divorce filing, the actress told PEOPLE, “We’re friendly. It’s all fine.”

Married in Sept. 2009, Gibbard has said of his former wife, “I was just awestruck that she was even talking to me. I’d seen her movies and obviously I thought she was very beautiful.”
