Damon Wayans, Jr.
Coach isn't going anywhere!
Damon Wayans, Jr., who returned to New Girl on Tuesday, will stay on past his planned four-episode arc, TVGuide.com has learned. He will continue his role as Coach for the remainder of the season as a special guest star.
Which bubble shows are in danger?
Wayans first appeared as Coach, one of the roommates in the loft, in the pilot for the Fox comedy, but could not continue because of his commitment to ABC's Happy Endings
, which has since been canceled. Creator Liz Meriwether
had said previously that plans were in motion to get Wayans back.
