The Greendale gang is losing one member.
Yvette Nicole Brown has decided to depart Community's upcoming sixth season due to a personal reason.
Read on for her statement below:
My dad needs daily care and he needs me. The idea of being away 16 hours a day for five months, I couldn’t do it. It was a difficult decision for me to make, but I had to choose my dad.
Brown, who portrays Shirley, has been granted by Sony to be released from her contract. While it's still unclear how her absence will affect the former NBC comedy, Brown assures fans that she's open to go back as a guest star.
