New Girl spoilers: Coach is back in next week’s episode, ‘Coach’
It was earlier announced that Damon Wayans, Jr. is returning to Fox’s New Girl to reprise his role and fans were thrilled. Now, his much awaited return is a week away. Wayans, who plays Coach in the show, is reunited with former crib-mates Nick (Jake Johnson), Jess (Zooey Deschanel) and Schmidt (Max Greenfield). He appeared once only in the pilot, but had to leave due to a scheduling conflict.
The reunion with Coach and the gang will usher in good vibes, as he comes back a single man and ready to party.
Some first images were released, and it looks like Nick, Jess, Schmidt and even Winston (Lamorne Morris) — who presumably should be meeting Coach for the first time — are enjoying his company. The (mis) adventures apparently include singing with a mariachi band and ganging up on a police officer.
The episode, also titled ‘Coach’, guest stars Taye Diggs (Private Practice) as Artie, a “smooth, confident ladies’ man” who has his eyes on Jess when they meet at a bar. Artie will be a threat to Nick and Jess’ relationship, so expect an inevitable fight/confrontation between the two.
Here’s the synopsis from the network:
A newly single Coach (guest star Wayans, Jr., “Happy Endings) returns to the loft, and wants to pick up exactly where he left off when he moved out. Meanwhile Jess and Cece have a girls’ night out, during which they meet a handsome stranger (guest star Diggs).
The episode will air on Nov. 5th.
