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?
We've gathered the most absurd and, well, dumb news for you this week and put it all together in one convenient location for your reading pleasure. In this week's Dose of Ridiculous, we'll check in with Chevy Chase (again), Nicki Minaj, and oh, hey, it looks like that 'Mummy' reboot is still a thing.
For years now, many have lauded the Emmys as a predictable ceremony, including Jon Stewart last night, but one thing that certainly didn't surprise us was the lack of acknowledgement for 'Community,' in particular its outspoken star Chevy Chase. Over the last year we've heard Chase take potshots at everything from the series to departing showrunner Dan Harmon, but with Harmon gone and 'Community' possibly heading into its last season, what new bile does Chase have for the show?
Please, make it stop. Chevy Chase, you break our hearts whenever you open your mouth about 'Community.' That's right, it seems as though even weeks after the fervor of 'Community' star and comedy legend Chevy' Chase's feud with series creator Dan Harmon seems to have died down, the silver-haired comedian is at it again with any reporter who asks.
It's bad enough when your critically-adored TV show is constantly on the bubble and renewal news seems to come down to the wire without having to worry about the fate of one of your lead actors. So with news of 'Community' season 4 arriving any day now, what does the cast think about their chances, or Chevy Chase?
Come on, people, aren't we past this? The healing had begun from the infamous war of words between 'Community' series creator Dan Harmon and series star Chevy Chase, but now another leaked, albeit older message threatens to derail any progress made on an amicable vibe for the endangered series.
Just as 'Community' finally returned from its long winter hiatus, and a ratings uptick in recent episode combined with a Comedy Central syndication deal suggested that the show was likely to pick up a season 4 renewal, more trouble is a'brewin'. But it's not coming from the ratings this time...
