Damon Wayans Jr. Leaving 'New Girl' at End of This Season

Damon Wayans Jr. has announced that he will leave New Girl at the end of the current fourth season.

“I’m so grateful to have had the opportunity to come back to New Girl in Season 3 to reprise the role of Coach,” the 32-year-old actor told TVLine in a statement. “Working with this incredibly talented and funny cast and crew has been one of the best experiences of my career.”

In case you don’t remember, Damon actually appeared in the New Girl pilot, but wasn’t able to continue with the series due to his commitment with ABC’s Happy Endings. He ended up making a special guest appearance in season three and then became a series regular for season four.

“We love Damon and are so lucky to have had him return for the past season-and-a-half,” New Girl executive producer Liz Meriwether added. “We are working on crafting an exit for him that will leave the door open for many more returns, especially since Coach is our resolution to the upcoming ‘Who’s Jess’ Baby Daddy?’ storyline.”
