Damon Wayans, Jr. has had his last hoorah with Fox's hit series New Girl once again and will not be returning for season 4.
Nearly a year and a half after returning to the show as a recurring role (which then turned into a regular), Wayans is ready to say goodbye.
But the show's producer and creator Liz Meriwether had nothing but good things to say about Wayans' contribution to the series. In fact, she confirmed viewers might not have seen the last of him on the show.
"We love Damon and are so lucky to have had him return for the past season and a half," she told The Hollywood Reporter Thursday. 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."
He stayed on the series through the third season finale, which aired Tuesday (Feb. 3)
"I'm so grateful to have had the opportunity to come back to New Girl in season three to reprise the role of 'Coach.' Working with this incredibly talented and funny cast and crew has been one of the best experiences of my career."
Wayans originally left New Girl after starring in the pilot, when another show he starred in Happy Endings was picked up for a second season. He then returned to New Girl when Happy Endings was cancelled.
It's not clear why he decided to exit the show again, but he's definitely not struggling to find another gig. According to the site he has already gotten offers to new shows.
