TVLine has learned exclusively that the Battlestar Galactica alumna will guest-star in a Season 4 installment of the quirky NBC comedy.
Putting to good use her inner geek goddess, Helfer will drop by as Lauren, a drop-dead gorgeous superfan of the (fictional) cult-hit Inspector Spacetime.
As previously reported, the coming season’s fourth episode centers on Abed attending a convention for the Doctor Who-esque series. There, he’ll befriend a fellow fanboy, played by Little Britain‘s Matt Lucas.
Helfer most recently co-starred in NBC’s ill-fated The Firm and guested on Criminal Minds‘ Season 7 finale.
