On-again/off-again New Girl co-star Damon Wayans Jr. is set to reprise his role as Coach for two episodes, one of which will be show’s nuptial-themed Season 5 finale. Co-star Jake Johnson broke the news of Wayans’ comeback on Instagram Wednesday, declaring that “the vibe on set is jacked.”

The Happy Endings alum starred in the New Girl pilot back in 2011, but his commitment to the aforementioned ABC sitcomWhen Happy Endings  prevented him from continuing with the series. When Happy Endings was axed, Wayans returned to the sitcom for a four-episode arc, eventually becoming a “special guest star” for the remainder of Season 3. In May 2014, ahead of Season 4, he was upped to full-fledged series regular in a one-year deal. He eventually left the show (again) last spring at the conclusion of Season 4.
