Take a look back at a time when pretty much any celebrity who could form a sentence on camera (and some who clearly couldn't) got handed a late-night talk show.
For as much excitement for 'Community' season 5 reverberates through Comic-Con 2013, this year moving to Hall H for series creator Dan Harmon's return, fans of the quirky NBC comedy remain wary of 'Community''s final days. Chevy Chase has long since said his goodbyes, with Donald Glover seemingly on his way out as well, so what does Harmon have to say about his once and future stars?
Last year, right around this time, 'Community' fans were shocked and awed that the show would return for season 4... but without series creator/showrunner Dan Harmon. The fourth season was wobbly, and Harmon's presence was sorely missed, but now there's word/a ray of hope that he could be brought back for the recently announced fifth season.
It's been a good while since the various 'Community' controversies have reared their ugly heads, from Dan Harmon's exit to the war of words and fellow exit of series star Chevy Chase. Ratings have been largely steady, if disappointing for 'Community's fourth season, but while fans wait for news of a renewal, what does series star Joel McHale have to say of the real reasons Chevy Chase left the series? Find out the latest on 'Community' inside!
With 'Community's long-awaited season 4 premiere finally arriving on Thursday, February 7, the cast have naturally made the press rounds of late and been subject to a number of questions surrounding the show's bubble status, and star Chevy Chase's dramatic (but not unsurprising) exit from the series. Lead actor Joel McHale recently offered up a surprisingly direct assessment of the legendary 'SNL' star's various incidents to Howard Stern, so what did McHale do that made Chase want to fight him?
No one was particularly surprised (except maybe the writers) when Chevy Chase announced that he'd be quitting his role as 'Community's Pierce Hawthorne, particularly given the rough history with both published comments and now-departed creator Dan Harmon. Yet, with two episodes yet to be shot before Chase's exit, and the always hopeful possibility of a fifth season, have the writers re-worked the season to incorporate Pierce's departure? Could Pierce be meeting Mr. Mayhem?
Granted a certain other Thursday sitcom meltdown might have stolen a bit of 'Community's thunder of late, with Chevy Chase finally announcing his resignation from the series prior to the beginning of its fourth, and likely final season, there are still plenty of questions to be answered. With only a few of the 13-episode order for 'Community' season 4 left to shoot, how might the show alter the timeline to reflect Pierce's departure? And will we get another paintball episode after all?
Streets ahead? Streets behind? Just plain streets? Any loyal 'Community' fan knows that for as long as the series has aired on NBC, series star Chevy Chase has had a public distaste for its brand of humor, his character Pierce Hawthorne, and particularly former show-runner Dan Harmon. Chase himself has hinted multiple times that he might leave the series, and has now officially confirmed his exit. But with so much of the thirteen-episode season 4 shot, will we really miss him?
