Fan-favorite comedy series Community secured a fourth season earlier this year (without creator Dan Harmon in tow). Several cast members were present at the Comic-Con 2012 Community Panel, where they teased the future shenanigans of the Greendale Seven.
The Community stars were accompanied by newly-appointed showrunners David Guarascio and Moses Port, who voiced their desire to not stray far from Harmon’s approach to the television series.
Here are the major highlights/revelations from the panel:
- Brown compared her and McHale’s real-life relationship to Shirley and Jeff – as she’s always beating him at foosball. She also mentioned that the German fooseball players from S3 will return.
- McHale announced that we will get to meet Jeff’s father in S4 (spoiler: it’s Eddie Murphy – kidding).
- Guarascio promised that he and Port will “not screw [the show] up” and plan to keep things running just like they were under Harmon’s watchful eye.
- S4 will be “a time of emotional change” for most of the main characters, as it’s their senior year – though, that does not, per se, mean it will be the show’s final season.
- We’ll get to see Pierce Hawthorne’s (Chevy Chase) mansion, and see an Inspector Spacetime Convention.
- Pudi and McHale performed the Community Christmas rap.
- S3 DVD arrives on August 14th, 2012 (close to Brown’s birthday).
- A Britta/Troy pairing isn’t a certainty, but Guarascio teased that “The sparks might become a fire.”
- There won’t be an Inspector Spacetime TV show (unless it’s fan-made).
