BREAKING: Yvette Nicole Brown Departs 'Community' | TV Guide
Yvette Nicole Brown is departing the fan favorite comedy after five seasons. Brown — who has played Shirley Bennett since the 2009 launch of Community — confirms to TV Guide Magazine that she has asked to be released from her contract for personal reasons. Sony Pictures TV and executive producers Dan Harmon and Chris McKenna have honored her request. The actress says the change was necessary in order to take care of her ailing father. My dad needs daily care and he needs me, Brown says. 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.
