Community Exclusive: Giancarlo Esposito's Back!

Community Season 4Breaking Bad Emmy nominee Giancarlo Esposito is headed back to NBC’s Community, sources tell TVLine exclusively.

Reprising his role as Pierce’s newly discovered baby bro Gilbert, the actor — who made his Community debut in one of Season 3’s three finales — is set to appear in an early Season 4 installment.

Additional details surrounding the guest spot are being kept under wraps, but perhaps he’ll figure into the upcoming episode that takes place at Pierce’s massive (and “twisted”?) mansion? (Reps for the NBC comedy could not confirm the actor’s encore at this time.)

Esposito currently is playing a fierce militia captain on NBC’s new drama Revolution. He followed his explosive Breaking Bad turn last year with a memorable arc on ABC’s Once Upon a Time, as the Magic Mirror/newspaper reporter Sydney Glass.

Community’s senior year begins Friday, Oct. 19 at 8:30/7:30c.
