'Community''s six seasons and a movie grow closer to fruition every day, and though Greendale will have some new blood in its first Yahoo Screen season, talk naturally turns to some major character returns. We thought we'd said goodbye to Pierce Hawthorne last year, but Chevy Chase seems to think he'll be back for a cameo!
Curious thought we are if NBC’s ‘Community’ will feel the same when season 6 debuts on Yahoo Screen next year, our first look at the Greendale Gang’s latest adventures look right at home. The first photos of the new season have arrived, as guest stars Keith David and Paget Brewster tread some familiar ground, but make fine additions to the ‘Community’ cast.
Last week saw ‘Community‘ season 6 beefing up the Greendale roster to include both ‘Enlisted’ veteran Keith David and Paget Brewster, and now the newly re-minted Yahoo Screen series will take us behind the scenes of its second episode, as well as Britta’s birth! Sort of. ‘Community’ star Jim Rash with team with frequent partner Nat Faxon to direct the second installment of the season, which will introduce ‘Clue’ stars Martin Mull and Lesley Ann Warren to play Britta’s parents.
When last we heard of 'Community' season 6's miraculous Yahoo return, things looked a bit dire for the Greendale gang as Yvette Nicole Brown hung up the role of Shirley and departed the series. Now, the series' sixth season has formally begun adding its newest study group cast members, that of Paget Brewster and 'Enlisted' veteran Keith David!
Apart from its miraculous Yahoo Screen renewal, 'Community' season 6 has had fans on edge with potential cast departures to follow Donald Glover and Chevy Chase. Now, following availability concerns with CBS, Yvette Nicole Brown has been confirmed to depart 'Community' season 6 before shooting, albeit for unexpected reasons.
'Community' fans are used to a bit of emotional whiplash when it comes to renewal and cast departures, but its latest might truly be the darkest timeline of all. Following Chevy Chase and Donald Glover's exit from the series, one of 'Community' season 6's writers has suggested that comedy darling Alison Brie's role in the new season has not yet been confirmed.
Many a big-name director once cut their teeth on NBC's 'Community,' from the likes of 'Fast and Furious' franchise helmer Justin Lin, to 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier' (and sequel!) directors Joe and Anthony Russo. Now, with 'Community' headed into unfamiliar territory for its sixth season on Yahoo Screen, the Russos will return to guide its transition by directing the season 6 premiere.
Rescued from cancellation thought it may have been, 'Community''s future remains something of a question mark without Yahoo Screen setting any kind of official season 6 timetable. And while Comic-Con 2014 only had so many hints to offer on the Greendale Gang's new beginning, our first Yahoo teaser promises that the onetime-NBC series will be back better, stronger, and faster than ever.
Six seasons and a panel! School is back in session as ‘Community’ returns from the grave once more to stage a panel at Comic-Con 2014. The cast and crew -- including creator Dan Harmon, executive producer Chris McKenna, and stars Joel McHale, Gillian Jacobs, Jim Rash and Dino Stamatopoulos -- all hit San Diego this afternoon to celebrate Greendale’s move to Yahoo Screen, so find out what ‘Community’ season 6 has in store with our full report on today’s panel!
'Community' surprised us all yet again with its last-minute Yahoo renewal for a sixth season, as well with yesterday's news that the Greendale Gang would return to Comic-Con 2014, but fans of the cancelled cult NBC comedy still have a few questions about its return. Now, we have even more insight into who's returning, how and when new episodes will roll out, and what we can expect to see from San Diego.
