New Girl has given Coach an extension.
Damon Wayans Jr., whose four-episode comeback arc kicked off Tuesday, has closed a deal to stick around for the remainder of the Fox’s comedy’s third season, TVLine has learned.
Technically speaking, Wayans will continue to receive the Heather Locklear treatment and be billed as a “special guest star.”
As previously reported, the Happy Endings alum is currently developing a new comedy project with Fox to be directed by Modern Family co-executive producer Jason Winer and written by Reed Agnew and Eli Jorne, the showrunners from FX’s canine comedy Wilfred. Titled Man/Child, the potential series is about a pair of single dads who become roommates and struggle to find the balance between being responsible parents and debaucherous bachelors.
