Dan Harmon Returning to ‘Community’?

Posted by Robin Paulson Categories: Comedy, Prime Time, NBC, Gossip, Rumors,

Dan HarmonCommunity fans will be happy to know that show creator Dan Harmon might return for next season.

Despite the fact that Harmon parted ways with the NBC show in a less-than-peaceful manner, he accidentally revealed to his Harmontown podcast audience that he was welcomed back into the hit critically-acclaimed sitcom's fold.

"As soon as Dan said it, he asked that it be edited out of the podcast and it was just for us audience members (and I wasn’t going to say a word) but soon after that Dan said 'Ahhh #### it. I don’t care who knows!'" revealed a writer from Hollywookiee, who was present at the taping.

The writer also added that Harmon joked about only returning if Chevy Chase - who left the show during production of its fourth season - would agree to come back as well. Even if Harmon does return to writing behind the scenes, he didn't specify in what capacity; hopefully NBC will come out and give us such details now that Harmon has let the cat out of the bag.

Chevy Chase Parts Ways with ‘Community’

Chevy Chase as Pierce HawthorneSo long, Pierce Hawthorne.

Community's resident bigoted millionaire will be dropping out of Greendale Community College, as it was announced that Chevy Chase will be leaving the NBC comedy. Although it was  reported the decision is mutual, there have been claims previously about Chase's frustration with his character and clash with former showrunner Dan Harmon.

Most of the show's upcoming fifth season has been filmed, although it has not been confirmed whether or not his exit will be written into the show.

None of the other actors will be leaving the show, and Chase's departure is not expected to impact production.

Community will begin airing its final season on February 7 at 8pm on NBC.

CommunitySchool will be back in session for Community cast members this upcoming February.

The NBC series - which looked to be in trouble earlier when the network pulled the series from its original season premiere on October 19 - will return to the small screen on Thursday, February 7 at 8 p.m., its previous time slot. The show will replace the slot currently occupied by 30 Rock.

Season four will be - unlike previous seasons - thirteen episodes and without series creator Dan Harmon behind the scenes as showrunner. Writers David Guarascio and Moses Port (co-creators of Aliens in America) will instead take Harmon's place.

Posted by Robin Paulson Categories: Comedy, Prime Time, NBC, Announcements, News,


After several weeks of leaving Community fans waiting to find out whether or not the pop culture-loving comedy would ever return to the NBC line-up after its winter break, the network has finally announced a return date: March 15.

Reclaiming its Thursday night spot at 8pm, the show bumps its current replacement, 30 Rock, back to 8:30pm while Parks & Recreation goes on hiatus. Beyond season 3, sadly, the network hasn't confirmed whether or not the Breakfast Club-esque study group will see another semester season.
