According to Netflix’s announcement, Common will be playing Dr. Chris Jackson, a character described as “a suave and debonair dermatologist who works in Nalini’s (Poorna Jagannathan) building.

And in addition to announcing Common’s involvement, Netflix released the first batch of photos from the upcoming second season.
