Looks like Coach might be making his way back to the loft. Now that “Happy Endings” is officially, officially canceled (after months of hoping another network might pick up the half-hour ABC comedy), Damon Wayans Jr. is in talks to re-join “New Girl” to reprise his role as Coach, TVLine reports.
If a deal is reached, Wayans would be back for a major Season 3 arc. He appeared in the “New Girl” pilot, but once “Happy Endings” got a Season 2 renewal he was forced to exit the Fox comedy. Lamorne Morris‘s Winston was then added to the cast. Who knows how these two will mesh, but something tells us if Wayans does return, we’ll get some great Winston/Coach comedy gold.
“New Girl” Season 3 premieres Tuesday, Sept. 17 at 9 p.m. ET on Fox.
