The great news for “Community’ season 5 just keeps coming. The show has already booked some iconic stars from the likes of “Firefly” and “Breaking Bad,” and now you are getting a woman who was at one point a staple of “Criminal Minds” over on CBS.
In a post on Twitter, Paget Brewster confirmed that she will be shooting an episode of the NBC fan favorite next week, though declined for the time being to say just what her role during the hour would be. This does continue a trend over the years of dramatic actors landing some sort of role on the show. You have Jonathan Banks on the series this year, and back during the third season, Michael K. Williams from “The Wire” also had a significant recurring role. Brewster could be a fun addition, depending of course on just what the role she has on the show.
The challenge for “Community” moving into season 5 is massive, and the good news here in some ways is that those associated with the show know it. Dan Harmon is well aware that most people out there are not fans of what happened during season 4, and now that he is back on board running the show, he has to turn that around and get people excited again. The one bit of good news for him? He may get an opportunity to have these episodes air by early next year. The premiere ratings for “Welcome to the Family” were a dud (as predicted by many), and “Community” could be back in its old timeslot once again soon in an effort to fight “The Big Bang Theory” (we still wonder what the show could do without that sort of burden).
