The fifth season of Community returns on January 2nd and the folks in charge put together this teaser for what’s going on this season. Rather than just show clips, it’s told as a movie trailer for, Mr. Winger which placed where Joel McHale’s character is after graduating from Greendale at the end of season 4. As all Community fans know by now, creator Dan Harmon is returning this season as showrunner after being exiled for last season. Harmon has said that he’s doing some retooling of the and re-establishing characters. Something he’s definitely going to have to do since Chevy Chase has left the cast, Donald Glover is departing halfway through the season and John Oliver is returning to the show. Oh, and how can we forget Mitch, Tim, and Eric. We’re getting ever close to six seasons and a movie becoming a reality.
We reported earlier that Donald Glover was departing Community this season to focus on other endeavors. While Glover himself nor the producers of the show didn’t really give much information as to why exactly he was leaving, many speculated it was to focus on his burgeoning rap career as Childish Gambino. Not too long after this news, Glover inked a deal to develop and star in a new FX sketch comedy show. Others also speculated that it might just be plain burnout since Glover, a usually very social being retreated heavily from sharing on social media.
Well last night via his Instagram account Glover penned what looks like they could be lyrics to a song in addition to a rambly sorta-explanation why he left the show all on hotel stationary. Stating (amongst other things) that it wasn’t because of rap, his record getting pushed back and continued to cite everything from illness, seeing people die, feeling helpless, and trying to follow his own blueprint. He also stated that he has a lot of fears. Well damn, now I just have more questions than answers really. Read More
Since his breakout role as Mr. Chow in The Hangover, Ken Joeng has been on a hot streak. But before he became ‘that guy from that thing,’ he was a licensed physician. Now he’ll get to go back to his roots, kind of, as he’s landed the lead role and co-executive producer role on Dr. Ken, a sitcom that’s been picked up by NBC, Deadline reports. The show will be loosely based on Jeong’s pre-actor life as a doctor.
What does this mean for Community, the show he’s currently on? Well, it would certainly add fuel to the rumors that the show’s fifth season will be it’s last. However, given that both shows will be on NBC and from Sony TV, maybe Jeong will be able to multitask. He himself said on Facebook “I will never leave Community. I will always Chang the world.” Jeong got his M.D. degreee from the University of North Carolina and finished an internal medicine residency at Ochsner Medical Center in New Orleans. He’s still a licensed physician in the State of California.
On the upcoming season on of NBC’s Community, John Oliver will be returning to Greendale to reprise his role as professor Ian Duncan. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Oliver will be appearing as Prof. Duncan in at least six episodes. You may remember Oliver’s goofy professor character appearing from time to time in the first two seasons of the show. This exciting news for Community fans comes almost immediately following Oliver’s eight-week stint hosting The Daily Show. Combined with the return of series creator Dan Harmon and executive producer Chris McKenna, Oliver’s re-entry to the show should make old school fans very happy.
By this point we all know that Donald Glover will be lessening his role on Community. But that doesn’t mean he’s leaving unscathed.
As the show returns to tape this season he has to answer to his fellow cast members. As you can see from her vine, Alison Brie and Gillian Jacobs released their fury on Glover with a few “D*ck Hits” as punishment.
The internet is now collectively dropping its jaw and trying to figure out how they can get on the show only to leave to get Jacobs and Brie to place things in the vicinity of their man parts. Read More
Sure this might be that season of Community without creator/showrunner Dan Harmon, and even if he has not yet watched it, that doesn’t mean the public didn’t think it was funny. The good news is that Harmon will be back for season 5, even if some of the cast won’t be. However, the fifth season is not the one that matters right now. It’s all about the fourth season hitting the market today (August 6).
With any good news, there is always bound to be even better news. The better news is that you can save 59% on the fourth season of Community, that is a total of $27.03 off the listed price of $45.99. So if you haven’t taken a math class in about 10 years, we have done it for you and have saved you the trouble of figuring out that you will only be paying $18.96 for the 13 episodes surrounding Greendale Community College.

The first thing I thought of when hearing this news is, “Oh man! Abed is not going to like this!”
Reports are coming in that Donald Glover will not be returning as a full time cast member of Season 5 of Community. What this means is less of Troy in the hallways of Greendale Community College. The reason being that Glover wants to spend more time with his musical project, Childish Gambino. So far the show is only scheduled for a 13 episode run and Glover is slated to star in 5. So as the show’s creator/showrunner Dan Harmon returns, another cast member is slowing down their role.
So less Troy Barnes but more Childish Gambino. Why not more of crossover moments like they did with Betty White? Read More
