Just when you thought Damon Wayans Jr. was done with his role on Fox’s New Girl, news has come out of a return. According to several outlets Damon will reprise his role as Coach on the series for two special episodes.
Proving the rule that there will always be a place for Coach on the veteran Fox comedy New Girl, word has arrived that we’ll be seeing the semi-regular character pop up once again before season five is through. TV Line reports that Damon Wayans Jr. is going to appear in two upcoming episodes, including a certain wedding-themed season finale. Wayans has been on the show before in a variety of capacities, ranging from a spot in the pilot to a run as a series regular in season four. Cast members Jake Johnson and Max Greenfield got all riled up passing the news along on Instagram. (It’s a skosh intense, to be honest.) If you’re the sort of person that likes to keep track of “vibe” reports from the New Girl set, you’ll be happy to know that Johnson says everyone’s “jacked” for Wayans’ return.
