Damon Wayans Jr. Will Remain on New Girl for the Rest of the Season

If you enjoyed the return of Damon Wayans Jr. to New Girl Tuesday night, good news: Coach is sticking around. Producers have struck a deal to expand Wayans's planned four-episode arc on the show into a season-long guest-starring gig. In case you're not up on your New Girl mythology, Wayans appeared in the pilot for the show but had to skeedaddle once ABC picked up Happy Endings. With Happy no more, well ... you get the rest. Fox's Tuesday night lineup has now officially become a home for wayward Happy cast members: Adam Pally is a regular on The Mindy Project.
