No doubt it’s been a rocky season for Max Greenfield’s Schmidt. Okay, so most of it has been Schmidt’s own doing. But still. Can’t help but feel sorry for the guy, you know?

In light of this recent spoiler from E! Online, it definitely seems like we might be getting even more of a Schmidt development this season than two breakups and some introspective time.

New Girl producers have devised a clever way to accommodate the return of Damon Wayans, who appeared in the pilot and will return next month, E! News can report exclusively. Someone is moving out!

One of New Girl‘s series regulars — Jess (Zooey Deschanel), Nick (Jake Johnson), Schmidt (Max Greenfield) or Winston (Lamorne Morris) — will pack up and leave the apartment they all share in an upcoming episode. This departure will clear the way—and an empty room—for Coach’s (Wayans) return.

E! goes on to say that the loft-mate in question is “probably not who [we] think”, and that it’s a “great twist”. Do we have anything else to go by, other than those two hints?

Well…it’s not exactly a solid spoiler. But the guide for episode 6 of season 3 (“Keaton”) does say that Schmidt will “make a big decision” by the end of the episode. Think Schmidt’s “big decision” in question could mean that he’s moving out of the loft?

Seeing as how these spoilers here talk about Lamorne Morris’ Winston interacting with Coach, it’s seeming kind of likely. (Not to mention these spoilers here say that Schmidt will be “very competitive” toward Coach…hmm.)

In other, not-so-depressing New Girl spoilers…are you at least excited for Damon Wayans’ return as Coach?
