'Community' Star Says Goodbye To Greendale, Hello To Brooklyn

Posted: Updated:

She may have graduated from NBC, but now one "Community" alum is going for her PhD in HBO.

TVLine reports that Gillian Jacobs is set to star in a recurring role on HBO's "Girls." Jacobs will appear in the upcoming fourth season as Mimi-Rose Howard, making her debut in an episode simply titled "Mimi-Rose."

Jacobs last starred as Britta Perry on the NBC's "Community," which was canceled this month despite a spirited campaign to get a sixth season and a movie.

Though the sting of the cancellation is still fresh, Jacobs' return to TV should give "Community" fans cause for celebration.
