"Community" might be a thing of the past, but Gillian Jacobs has found a whole new neighborhood to hang out in.

Jacobs, who played Britta Perry on the recently canceled NBC sitcom, has booked a recurring role on HBO's "Girls" for its fourth season, an individual with knowledge of the casting told TheWrap on Wednesday.

Additional details about the character were not immediately available, but TVLine said that Jacobs' character will be named Mimi-Rose Howard, and will make her premiere on the fifth episode of the upcoming season, which oddly enough bears the title "Mimi-Rose."

"Community" was canceled earlier this month after wrapping its fifth season in April.

"Girls," which will kick off its fourth season next year, finished up its third season in March.
