I mentioned a couple of months ago that since Happy Endings got cancelled there may be a chance that Damon Wayans Jr. would return to New Girl to reprise his role as Coach - and it is happening!
Wayans was on the show in the pilot season and had to drop out after Happy Endings got picked up for a second season. He was then replaced, but not his character. The story is that Coach ended up moving away and then Winston moved into his room.
When New Girl first premiered I said that Coach was the only good thing about the show. Clearly I was a little mistaken, but that does speak to his amazingness on the show.
It has been confirmed that Wayans will come back as Coach for at least 4 episodes in the coming season.
I can't wait. I hope he stays on for good, but I'll take what I can for now.
