Can we just say everybody in Hollywood will guest-star in "Community" Season 5 at this point? In one single episode, Paget Brewster ( "Criminal Minds"), Brie Larson ( "United States of Tara"), Robert Patrick, Ben Folds and Kumail Nanjiani will appear.

One of these actors is actually reprising a role. Brie Larson appeared once before on "Community" as Rachel, a quirky friend of Abed's. "Things have been introduced with Abed that we've never really revisited, so it's nice to see something that we go back to -- especially with Brie, because she's great," Danny Pudi told TVLine.

The episode in which Larson appears also is the one that follows Troy's ( Donald Glover) departure. Will having a girl around ease Abed's loss?

If not, there will at least be a lot of others hanging out to distract Abed. The huge guest cast is coming for a midterms school dance -- many of them might just be cameos that come and go in passing. But it's not like there's a shortage of guest stars for the rest of Season 5. Jonathan Banks ( "Breaking Bad"), Nathan Fillion ( "Castle") and Katie Leclerc ( "Switched at Birth") are all slated to appear at least once on "Community."

There is currently no return date for "Community" on NBC.
