Not in my wildest dreams did I think Community would get renewed for season five, but I was hopeful; and now that NBC officially renewed Community, I should do a twenty vocals yes: Yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeees! Community got renewed! Community got renewed! Community got renewed! I´m sorry that I´m not journalistic like in this one, but I´m emotional right now knowing such good news!
This makes the possibility of six seasons and a movie not so far away a possibility, as renewing Community for season five makes the show close enough to the 100 episode mark (given the 13 episode order expected for season five), so another short order would put the show in syndication numbers.
Critically-acclaimed “Community” is a smart, exuberant half-hour comedy series about a tight-knit study group at Greendale Community College. At the center of the group is Jeff Winger (Joel McHale, “The Soup”), a fast-talking lawyer whose degree has been revoked. With some help from his fellow classmates, Winger forms a study group who eventually learn more about themselves than their course work.
Among the series stars who comprise the group are comedy legend Chevy Chase (“Fletch”) as Pierce, a successful businessman whose life experience has brought him infinite wisdom; Gillian Jacobs (“Seeking A Friend for the End of the World”) as Britta, the 20-something dropout with something to prove; Yvette Nicole Brown (“Rules of Engagement”) as Shirley, a sassy middle-aged divorcée; Danny Pudi (“Greek”) as Abed, a pop culture junkie; Alison Brie (“Mad Men”) as Annie, a high-strung perfectionist; Donald Glover (“30 Rock”) as Troy, a former high school football star trying to find his way and Ken Jeong (“The Hangover Part II”) as Chang, the group’s former Spanish professor–turned student. Greendale’s fearless leader is Dean Pelton (Jim Rash, “That 70s Show”), an ultra-efficient yet slightly neurotic administrator whose penchant for dressing in costume is well-documented.
While the show is coming back for season five, all castmembers are locked in to do so, except Chevy Chase. Maybe even a blessing in disguise for the show.
