The staff on Carol's Second Act is growing.

TV Insider has learned that Cedric Yarbrough will recur as Nurse Dennis on the new CBS comedy. A hospital veteran, he runs this town, and he knows it. He's seen it all and has little patience for nonsense from interns.

Though he's described as generally dry, he does have a mischievous side and isn't above holding a grudge.

In addition to his role on Reno 911, Yarbrough's previous TV credits include SpeechlessBoJack Horseman, The GoldbergsCrazy Ex-Girlfriend, and Ballers.

How Characters of a Certain Age Are Getting Their Due in Primetime TV

Patricia Heaton, Lily Tomlin, Michael Douglas, and more are proving viewers can't get enough of TV characters over 50.

Carol's Second Act follows Patricia Heaton's Carol Kenney as she embarks on a unique second act after raising her children, getting divorced, and retiring from teaching: pursuing her dream of becoming a doctor. She becomes a medical intern at age 50 and must sink or swim with peers half her age. Her enthusiasm, perspective, and age may be exactly what she needs to succeed.

The series also stars Ito Aghayere, Jean-Luc Bilodeau, Sabrina Jalees, Ashley Tisdale, and Kyle MacLachlan.
