New Girl’s Lamorne Morris and Dave Finkel Tease Damon Wayans Jr.’s Return as Coach — Exclusive

New Girl has captured the hearts of America, and more specifically, Nick and Jess have taken the world by storm. Though it took two seasons for them to get together, heading into Season 3, co-showrunner and executive producer Dave Finkel promises they're going to have some fun.

However, their first kiss almost didn't happen — Dave dished to Wetpaint and Celebified at ATX Television Festival in June that the duo wasn't supposed to kiss in that ep. Check out the video to see what else he and star Lamorne Morris (Winston) had to say about the upcoming season, Winston's love life, and the return of Coach (Happy Endings' Damon Wayans Jr.).

Notably, though the show would love to welcome Damon back — in fact, TVLine reported today, July 10, that he will return for a Season 3 arc — fans shouldn't hold their breath about him bunking in the loft permanently. "To have Coach come visit would be fantastic," Dave revealed. "Will he come back in a regular capacity? I doubt it, but I would definitely love to see him play him again.

Would you like Coach to take permanent residence in the loft again? Sound off below.
