“Community” will be making its season six premiere on Yahoo!Screen with some new faces. The comedy has added “Criminal Minds” vet Paget Brewster and “Enlisted” actor Keith David to the cast as series regulars.
Brewster has signed on to play Francesca “Frankie” Dart, a consultant brought in to help shape up Greendale, while David will play Elroy Patashnik, a retired scientist looking to reinvent himself.
Brewster first guest-starred on “Community” earlier this year as Greendale’s IT department boss, Debra Chambers. David has also worked with the series before, lending his voice as narrator to the show’s season three episode “Pillows and Blankets.”
While known for her “Criminal Minds” role, Brewster has comedic credits that include “Key & Peele,” “Drunk History” and “Modern Family.” David has also appeared in the CBS drama “Scorpion” and “The Bible,” and his voice has been heard on “Adventure Time,” “Once Upon a Time in Wonderland” and many more.
Production on the sixth season of “Community” is set to begin on Nov. 17 in Los Angeles. The 13 new episodes will air exclusively on Yahoo in early 2015.
TV Guide Magazine first reported the casting.
