'New Girl' adds Damon Wayans Jr. as series regular

Greg Gayne/Fox

Look forward to seeing more of Coach on New Girl: Damon Wayans Jr. will officially return as a series regular when the Fox comedy returns for a fourth season.

Wayans had been a recurring guest star since his return to the series this past November. The actor was in the New Girl pilot, but was replaced by Lamorne Morris’ character Winston when Wayans’ series Happy Endings was renewed for another season.

New Girl was renewed in March, along with Brooklyn Nine-Nine, The Following, and The Mindy Project.

New Girl airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. ET on Fox.
