Two new Human Beings are on their way to Greendale. Paget Brewster and Keith David will join Community full time as the comedy enters Season 6 and moves to its new home on Yahoo! Screen.
Brewster plays Francesca “Frankie” Dart, a consultant hired to help shape things up at the underachieving school. David will appear as Elroy Patashnik, a retired scientist who comes to Greendale to reinvent himself.
Brewster is no stranger to Community fans, having played a different character, IT department staffer Debra Chambers, in the Season 5 episode “Analysis of Cork-Based Networking.” Brewster’s lengthy TV resume includes Criminal Minds (which she returned to last season for one episode), Friends, Andy Richter Controls the Universe, Huff and American Dad. More recently, she was seen on Drunk History and Key and Peele.

She and Professor Hickey (guest star Jonathan Banks, “Breaking Bad”) team to navigate Greendale’s custodial corridors of power and must negotiate with Bob Waite (guest star Nathan Fillion, “Castle”), the politically savvy Greendale head custodian, and his right-hand man Lapari (Kumail Nanjiani, “Franklin & Bash”). They must also contend with Debra Chambers (guest star Paget Brewster, “Criminal Minds”), Greendale’s head of I.T. and Waldron (guest star Robert Patrick, “Identity Thief”), Greendale’s head of parking, in what becomes an increasingly complex hierarchy of staff. Joel McHale, Gillian Jacobs, Yvette Nicole Brown, Danny Pudi, Jim Rash and Ken Jeong also star. Jerry Minor (“Arrested Development”) and Brie Larson (“United States of Tara”) also guest star.
