‘Community’ Season 5: Joel McHale Bashes NBC Promotion in Comedy Central Spot

Community Comedy Central Syndication NBC

Whether by ‘Community‘ creator Dan Harmon‘s antics, or a communicable decline in quality for season 4, the NBC cult comedy has long struggled with the reasoning behind its celebrated, but statistically small audience. How better to fight back, than for series stars Joel McHale and Yvette Nicole Brown to stealthily bash NBC in a new Comedy Central syndication spot?

The new promo emerges from Entertainment Weekly, wherein long-suffering series star Ken Jeong celebrates the syndication money from Comedy Central’s upcoming September 22 syndication premiere, only for Joel and Yvette to fire back that no network (hint, NBC) has ever promoted the show on-air before. The words sting just a bit more while we wait for a proper ‘Community’ season 5 scheduling, but either way, ouch.

Elsewhere, ‘Community’ season 5′s likely 2014 return will see ‘Justified‘ star Walton Goggins guest as a mysterious man who causes trouble for the Greendale gang, while ‘Breaking Bad”s Jonathan Banks will take a significant recurring role as a new criminology professor from. Comedian Rob Corddry will return as Jeff’s lawyer-rival Alan Connor, while returning showrunner Dan Harmon revealed at Comic-Con 2013 his intent to draft a second Dungeons & Dragons-themed episode. Chevy Chase will not return for the fifth season, and star Donald Glover will take a reduced five-episode role to develop his own FX series, ‘Atlanta.’

Check out ‘Community”s biting NBC dig at the link below, and tell us in the comments if you think season 5 will mark the last outing for the Greendale gang!
