Dan Harmon Criticizes Season 4 Of Community, Calling It An Unflattering Impression
In the past, I've likened the fourth season of Community as the kind of season we see from a beloved sitcom that's begun to show its age, only in the case of Community, the show should actually still be reaching its prime. But with series creator Dan Harmon let go and new writers brought in to replace him, the comedy began to slip sooner than it might have. Listening to Dan Harmon talk about Season 4 on his recent podcast, during which the recently-returned Community showrunner admits to watching Season 4...
Dan Harmon Officially Returning To Community As Showrunner
It's officially official. Dan Harmon is coming back to Community. The comedy's creator actually confirmed that news last week, but now NBC has made that network-official, announcing that Dan Harmon would be returning as showrunner and executive producer of Community, and adding that Chris McKenna was also set to return as executive producer. The figurative band is getting back together.
Dan Harmon Confirms He's Coming Back To Community
Dan Harmon has confirmed that he's returning to Community. And we have Joel McHale to thank for this, apparently. Harmon let slip that there was a chance he might be returning to his NBC comedy series during a recording of his podcast Harmontown, however it was unconfirmed whether that was really going to happen. Today the former showrunner tweeted that "Yes yes yes! I'm back I'm back I'm back."
Could Dan Harmon Return To Community For Season 5?
We're existing in a timeline when Arrested Development has returned for a new season after nearly a decade off the air, so why couldn't this also be the timeline that brings Dan Harmon back to Community for another season? If that were the case, then Season 4 could be seen as a dream. Not a bad dream so much as one of those dreams where you didn't realize you were asleep until you woke up and you were kind of relieved just to have reality back.
NBC 2013-2014 Schedule Moves Parenthood, Revolution And Chicago Fire, New Series Added
A day ahead of their upfront presentation, NBC has posted their 2013-2014 schedule, which lays out where most of the new and returning series will air throughout the week come next fall. A few notable schedule changes appear to be taking place, including a move to Wednesdays for Revolution and a shift to Thursdays for Parenthood. Absent from the list is Community, but NBC did include it among the scripted series confirmed to return, so it will be back. It's just a matter of when.
Community Reportedly Close To Renewal For Season 5 - UPDATED
Community faced its darkest timeline once again and - once again - managed to survive. The series wrapped up its fourth season this week with "Advanced Introduction to Finality." Finality could be the key word, especially if NBC opts not to renew the fledgling comedy. Some fans might even argue that it's time for NBC to let the series go. It hasn't been the same since Dan Harmon left, anyway.
Community 'Heroic Origins' Clip Shows An Awkward Flashback For Annie
Spoilers from tonight's Community ahead! It looks like New Girl isn't the only great, current TV comedy tapping into flashbacks for a bit of awkward humor this week. Tonight's episode of Community will take us back in time to show how the beloved members of the study group were destined to cross paths with one another before they met at Greendale.
Community's Danny Pudi And Grimm's Claire Coffee To Guest Star In Royal Pains Season 5
Among the series slated to return at USA this summer is Royal Pains, which debuts its fifth season in June. It appears the drama, which centers on a doctor who treats wealthy clientele out in the Hamptons during the summer, has tapped into NBC's pool of talented actors for its guest stars, as Community's Danny Pudi and Grimm's Claire Coffee are both set to appear in the series in Season 5.
Community Basic Human Anatomy Clip Shows A Funny Moment Between Jeff And The Dean
Spoiler alert! Community is having a body-switching episode! It was probably only a matter of time before the forces at work took one Community character and switched them with another. The clip above reveals that Troy and Abed think they've switched bodies. Of course, Jeff sounds dubious, but he's willing to play along if it means putting an end to whatever nonsense TroBed is trying to sort out. But is it nonsense? Or is this a true Freaky Friday Like Father Like Son Vice Versa 18 Again situation? (Did I miss any?)
Hannibal Ratings Improve Slightly, Community Also Up From Last Week
Without the likes of Olivia Pope and Sherlock Holmes to contend with - or new episodes featuring said characters, anyway - Hannibal Lector didn't do so bad in his second night out at NBC. In fact, the ratings show that Hannibal was actually up from its premiere week, not by much, but given the already soft numbers the serial killer drama brought in, up is most definitely a good thing.
Community Puppet Episode Videos Prepare Us To Get Felt Up And Ready For Secrets
Yeah, based on the above snippet from tomorrow night's episode of Community, things may get weird when the study group members turn into puppets. NBC hasn't been shy about advertising the anticipated episode, "Intro to Felt Surrogacy," beginning with the puppet rap in last week's tag and following it up with some teasers that show us guest stars Sara Bareilles and Jason Alexander. The latest videos not only give us another peek at the episode and the characters as puppets, but they're also strongly encouraging us to watch live.
Community 'Intro to Felt Surrogacy' Clip Reveals Jason Alexander's Guest Appearance
I don't know about you guys, but that sounded like the start of a song at the end of the clip, no? Are we going to be treated to the vocal talents of one Jason Alexander? Anything is possible. And let's face it, stranger things have happened on this series - including catchy musical numbers - so the puppet angle was probably just a matter of time. The clip above does give us our first look at the Seinfeld star's visit to Community-land for this week's highly anticipated puppet episode!
Community 'Intro to Felt Surrogacy' Clip Reveals Puppets Prepped For A Musical Balloon Ride
We aren't just getting puppets out of this Thursday night's episode of Community, we're getting songs! Or at least one song, anyway, based on the above clip. Puppets and music? It seems almost too magical to be true. Though the tag for last week's episode did actually hint at music, as it had the characters seated around the study room table humming Troy's favorite tune, "Daybreak".
Watch: Community Teases Puppet Episode With Last Night's Tag
If you watched the tag on last night's episode of Community, you saw the tease for the anticipated puppet episode. I love that the puppet-rap has them performing a group version of "Daybreak," Troy and Abed's favorite song to hum. Next week's episode is titled "Inro to Felt Surrogacy," which just might tie right in with the characters' expected puppetness. Check out the episode description for more details that might explain how the study group managed to get themselves puppetified.
1600 Penn, Community, Revolution And Other Season Finale Dates Set At NBC
NBC hasn't quite finished rolling out their winter/spring slate, with Revolution and The Voice poised to return next week, and Hannibal set to arrive early next month. But the network is already prepping their season closers for the spring, and for some shows, the end is very near. That includes Whitney and 1600 Penn, both of which wrap up next week.
