Additional details about the character were not immediately available, but TVLine said that Jacobs’ character will be named Mimi-Rose Howard, and will make her premiere on the fifth episode of the upcoming season, which oddly enough bears the title “Mimi-Rose.”

“Community” was canceled earlier this month after wrapping its fifth season in April.
