Sorry, Human Beings. It looks like half of television’s greatest power duo – Troy and Abed – won’t be spending as much time together anymore. Donald Glover (Troy), the lovable and committed best friend to Abed (Danny Pudi) will only show up in five of Community’s upcoming 13 episodes, according to Vulture, who adds Glover decided to drastically cut his time at Greendale so he could focus more on his music career as Childish Gambino. Glover released Camp, his fourth album as Childish Gambino, in 2011. It debuted at number 11 on the Billboard 200 chart.

The news comes weeks after ousted Community creator Dan Harmon announced that he’d be returning to executive produce the fifth season of the NBC cult favorite. Harmon, as we’re sure you remember, was dropped after the show’s third season and replaced Moses Port and David Guarascio.

NBC has not yet announced a premiere date for Community‘s upcoming season.
