Welcome back to another installment of the Monday Morning Critic. In this space each week, I’ll be looking at the week that was in addition to the week ahead in television. The format will shift each week, as the world of TV will dictate the form and content of each piece. In this week’s installment: shows that are in danger of falling into my DVR abyss.
The Age of Ultron will surely blow our minds by its next trailer, but Community has officially stolen The Avengers’ spotlight for its first Season 6 trailer. Marvel at the “Age of Yahoo” in our first full look at the Greendale Gang’s sixth season, chock full of all your favorite cameos and craziness!
We’re still hard pressed to believe Community made it to Season 6 after all, with all-new episodes premiering on Yahoo Screen March 17, but short of an inevitable movie, the Greendale gang is officially back. Check out Community’s Season 6 poster for the big move, along with photos of our new and returning cast members!
We’re still pinching ourselves at the notion that ‘Community’ survived to its sixth season after all, but Yahoo Screen will have much more than a pinch this March. The Greendale gang has officially set a March return for the ostensibly final season of ‘Community’ (assuming #SixSeasonsAndAMovie), also revealing their episode schedule.
'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.
