School is almost back in session, Community
fans! Ahead of a November 17 production start date for the sixth season of the beloved cult comedy, which was once housed at NBC but is now at Yahoo, it’s been announced that Paget Brewster
and Keith David
are joining the cast in regular roles.
Brewster, known for her part on Criminal Minds
, will portray Francesca “Frankie” Dart, a consultant brought in to help shape up Greendale after its conditions slip below state requirements. Sharp-eyed fans of Community
might recognize Brewster – she previously had a role in the season two episode “Analysis of Cork-Based Networking” as Debra Chambers, a member of Greendale’s It department – but she’s playing a new character for her role in this season.
Meanwhile, David, known both for his voice-over work on various Ken Burns
documentaries and for his roles in such films as Platoon
and Crash, will play Elroy Patashnik,
