Abed may need to search for a new co-host for his morning show.

Vulture reports that Community co-star Donald Glover and Sony Pictures Television have hammered out a deal for the actor to appear as Troy Barnes in just five of the upcoming season’s 13 episodes. Glover has said he wants to spend more time working on his Childish Gambino hip-hop career.

Community fans by now must be accustomed to the roller-coaster ride that comes along with enjoying the eclectic NBC comedy. Never a ratings juggernaut, each season finale has left viewers wondering whether the gang from Greendale Community College will return. In addition to renewal concerns, devotees have witnessed the ouster by NBC of creator/showrunner Dan Harmon, the departure of Chevy Chase, a delayed fourth season and, just last month, the announced return of Harmon.

    Why? He’s a successful writer and comedian with a side hip-hop hobby. He’ll be fine not being in every episode of a failing sitcom.
