And we thought that was Daisy’s cat, Ferguson. Oh Daisy no, why…? Ahem. Just mourning New Girl‘s loss of Brenda Song here. (Seriously though, why does Winston still have her cat??)

The Hollywood Reporter has recently reported that Lamorne Morris’ Winston is going to be getting a new lady love soon, and actress/comedienne Jessica Chaffin (The Heat, Arrested Development) is going to play the part in episode 9 of New Girl‘s season 3, “Werewolf”.

New Girl has found a potential new object of affection for Winston (Lamorne Morris).

The single roommate, who has become increasingly preoccupied with his new cat, Ferguson, will take a ride with a lusty bus driver during an upcoming episode. The Hollywood Reporter has learned that comedian Jessica Chaffin will play the part.

Chaffin, best known as one half of the comedy duo Ronna & Beverly, will join the series during the current season’s ninth episode as Bertie, a straight-talking bus driver — aren’t they all? — who becomes quite fond of her passenger.

The episode, “Werewolf,” recently taped and is expected to air in mid-November.

What do you think leads Winston to taking the bus – and so meeting Jessica Chaffin’s upcoming Bertie?
