"It's hard to balance six characters, let alone five," NEW GIRL executive producer Brett Baer told THR, "but he has worked so well with so many different people. We've had him do stories with everybody and he just killed it."

This is great news for the actor, who originally starred in NEW GIRL pilot back in 2011 before exiting to continue his role on ABC's HAPPY ENDINGS. When HAPPY ENDINGS was canceled after three seasons last year, Wayans returned to NEW GIRL as a recurring guest star. Now it seems he's back for good!
Wayans joins regulars Zooey Deschanel (as Jess), Max Greenfield (as Schmidt), Jake Johnson (as Nick), Hannah Simone (as Cece), and Lamorne Morris (as Winston).
Wayans has also appeared on TV in Just Face It, NTSF:SD:SUV, The Underground and My Wife and Kids. Among his film credits are Blankman, Dance Flick, Marmaduke, The Other Guys, Someone Marry Barry and the upcoming Let's Be Cops.
About NEW GIRL: Taking a modern look at friendship and romance, hit comedy NEW GIRL, currently in its third season, follows a group of six friends, their somewhat interconnected romantic exploits and their often hilariously misguided attempts to find their respective places in the world.
