Amber Stevens West is joining Adam Scott and Craig Robinson in their battle against paranormal forces.

The Carmichael Show star, who became available with the late-June cancellation of that NBC comedy, has signed on to Fox comedy Ghosted as a series regular, the network has confirmed.

Premiering Oct. 1, the show features Scott as a Stanford astrophysics professor-turned-bookstore-employee named Max and Robinson as an LAPD-detective-turned-mall-cop named Leroy. The pair is recruited by the head of The Bureau Underground (Ally Walker) to investigate the paranormal after one of its agents is abducted. West will play Annie, a sharp, fun-loving tech specialist and weapons expert at The Bureau Underground.

West replaces Edie Patterson, who appeared in the pilot of Ghosted, and the role has been reimagined.

West — who previously starred in Greek — also appeared in Criminal Minds, 22 Jump Street, and How I Met Your Mother.

TVLine first reported news of her casting.
