Community season 5 to get underway in January

NBC has finally announced the return of fan favourite Community. The cult show had a hit and miss fourth season as a result of Dan Harmon’s sudden and controversial departure. With Harmon back at the helm as show runner and lead writer, it seems as if NBC have regained the faith they once had with Community by announcing its fifth series will begin on Thursday January 2nd.

Taking over the 8pm slot Parks and Recreation currently fills, season five of Community will debut with a double-bill, while NBC’s other leading comedy Parks and Recreation will move back half an hour. The fifth season of Community welcomes back Jeff Winger and the gang without the recently departed Chevy Chase and the much publicised departure of Donald Glover. Guest stars include Jonathan Banks (Breaking Bad), Nathan Fillion (Firefly, Much Ado About Nothing) and Walter Goggins (Django Unchained).

I can’t wait for the return of Community and with Harmon at the helm once again, hopefully it will return to its former glory.
