There’s good news and bad news for Community fans. The good news is that Joel McHale, Donald Glover, and Allison Brie are finally set to return to NBC. The bad news is that the show won’t be back until February.
NBC announced today that the fourth season of Community will premiere at 8 pm on Thursday, February 7.
The show was scheduled to premiere on October 19 but a few weeks before the premiere NBC announced that it was pulling Community from the lineup. The network said at the time that it wanted to see how its first year shows performed before it added Community to the lineup. NBC recently axed Animal Practice to make room for the comedy Whitney and has now found a place for Community.
NBC also announced today that Smash will be returning February 5, Revolution would return on March 25, and the new series Deception would premiere on January 7. The network also announced that Eva Longoria’s reality show Ready For Love will make its debut on March 31 and a new political comedy, 1600 Penn, would premiere on January 10.
Community may be making its return to NBC on February 7 but to the cast, it will always be October 19.
Are you a fan of Community? Are you glad to see it back in the lineup?
