Yvette Nicole Brown Joining CBS’ The Odd Couple, Does This Mean Shirley Is Leaving Community?

While Yahoo saved Community from certain extinction, it appears one of the show’s most beloved character might be departing by her own choice.

TVLine reports that Community‘s Yvette Nicole Brown has landed recurring role on CBS’ upcoming remake of The Odd Couple. Brown will play Oscar’s assistant Dani and will be featured alongside Matthew Perry. She replaces Sarah Baker who originally had the role when the show was ordered to series.

The actress and talk-show MVP will play Dani, assistant to Matthew Perry’s Oscar. She replaces Sarah Baker, who was let go shortly after the show was ordered to series.

It’s unclear how her new job will affect Brown’s participation as Shirley in Community‘s upcoming sixth season on Yahoo Screen, although it’s expected that she will return to the former NBC series in some capacity. TVLine reports that The Odd Couple starts shooting way before Community does, so it is possible that she could stay on both shows.
