‘Community’ Adds Two Actors to The Cast for Season 6

By November 10, 2014

With the departure of Donald Glover, Chevy Chase, and Yvette Nicole Brown from Dan Harmon’s “Community,” it seems that our favorite Greendale Community College study group is hurting for members. Sure, Jeff (Joel McHale), Britta (Gillian Jacobs), Annie (Alison Brie), and Abed (Danny Pudi) are still around, but I don’t think guys like Ben Chang (Ken Jeong) and Dean Pelton (Jim Rash) really qualify as members of the study group.

According to Yahoo, the show is adding two new cast members to the fray – but they won’t be members of the study group, either. Paget Brewster (“Criminal Minds”) will play Francesca “Frankie” Dart, a consultant brought in to help whip the school into shape, and Keith David (The Thing, Armageddon) will play a retired scientist named Elroy Patashnik.

Yahoo reveals that production on “Community” gets underway on November 17th and the thirteen new episodes will debut exclusively on Yahoo Screen sometime in early 2015. Looking forward to seeing the show come back? Let us know below!
