Details surrounding her return are scarce, but we can tell you she appears in the episode following Donald Glover‘s departure as Abed’s other-half, Troy Barnes. Perhaps she’ll help soften the blow?
“There’s a nice reason for her comeback,” a tight-lipped Danny Pudi shares with TVLine. “It’s a nice wrap-up to the storyline for Abed in this episode. And it’s a really great way to see another side of this character — especially this year with Troy leaving.
“Things have been introduced with Abed [in past seasons] that we’ve never really revisited,” the actor continues, “so it’s nice to see something that we go back to — especially with Brie, because she’s great. She’s an incredible actor.”
Also tapped to appear briefly in the installment — which centers on a midterms-centered dance — are former Criminal Minds fave Paget Brewster, Terminator/True Blood/Sons of Anarchy badass Robert Patrick, musician/The Sing-Off judge Ben Folds and Kumail Nanjiani (Franklin & Bash). They join the previously announced Nathan Fillion (Castle) and Katie Leclerc (Switched at Birth).Follow @MegMasters
