TVLine has learned exclusively that Don’t Trust the B—- Apartment 23‘s Dreama Walker is set to guest-star in the second episode of New Girl‘s upcoming third season.
In a bit of a role reversal, Walker’s the b—- this time around. According to an insider, she’ll play Molly, a beautiful, mean girl-esque teacher at the school where Jess (Zooey Deschanel) has been hired on a temp basis. Clearly one of the cool teachers, Molly takes an immediate dislike to Jess, who seems to be sucking up to the principal.
For those keeping track at home, in the past month Fox has retained the services of Happy Endings alums Damon Wayans Jr. (reprising his New Girl role as Coach) and Adam Pally (as a doctor on The Mindy Project).
Note to Krysten Ritter: How do you feel about playing a cop on Brooklyn Nine-Nine?
New Girl‘s third season debuts Sept. 17 at 9/8c.
Happy Endings‘ Damon Wayans Jr. is hooking up with the Girl that got away.
TVLine has learned exclusively that Wayans has inked a deal to reprise his New Girl role of Coach for at least four Season 3 episodes.
You’ll recall Wayans appeared in the New Girl pilot, but was forced to drop out when Happy Endings scored a surprise Season 2 renewal; Lamorne Morris’s Winston was brought in to fill the void. Endings‘ official (and extremely unfortunate) demise paved the way for Wayans’ likely return. (Fox declined to comment for this story.)
Jake Johnson, who’s currently shooting the comedy Let’s Be Cops with Wayans in Atlanta, kicked up the Coach comeback buzz last month when he told TVLine in the wake of Happy Endings ABC cancellation that he’d be thrilled to “welcome [Wayans'] back to the loft,” adding, “I would be surprised if he doesn’t come back for a while. There would be such funny episodes with the Coach seeing what’s happened in the past two years since he’s [been] gone.”
