New Girl Season 3: Who's Returning?

by at . Comments

The love triangle lives!

Fox has confirmed that Nurse Jackie star Merritt Wever will reprise her role as Elizabeth on New Girl Season 3, helping to complicate Schmidt's romantic life by appearing in at least two episodes.

When we last saw this pair on the New Girl Season 2 finale, Schmidt was running away (literally) from a choice between Elizabeth and CeCe.

The third season of this hilarious sitcom premieres on September 17, with fans also excited over another piece of casting news:

Damon Wayans Jr. will likely return in some capacity as Coach.

Coach is returning? No thanks. I think he was a test character in the pilot, and Winston has way more depth as a character, not to mention is a lot funnier. Having Coach come back would probably lower the bar, in my opinion.
