Fans of Community are used to bad news by now - but today there's at least some bittersweet good news.
The season 4 premiere of Community was once slated for October 19th before NBC decided to delay it indefinitely in favor of promoting their current line-up. Whitney was coupled with the community college comedy series in that delay, but was saved when Animal Practice was canceled, as Whitney will now return for season 2 in November. Now Community finally has its own premiere date, but fans will be waiting a few more months...
Series star Yvette Nicole Brown (who plays Shirley) just updated Twitter saying, "Guys, #Community officially has an air date: Thursday, February 7th at 8pm!"
So there you have it. It's been a complicated road for Community to get to its fourth season. Creator and executive producer Dan Harmon was fired and has been very vocal about his firing and feuding with Chevy Chase. In addition, new showrunners have been brought in, and fans are unsure how this season will turn out (especially since NBC only ordered 15 episodes). At least the show isn't stuck with a terrible Friday time slot anymore...
Thankfully, a clip spoofing The Hunger Games was recently released, and that gives us something to look forward to when Community arrives in February. In addition, there's great guest stars on the horizon like Breaking Bad and Revolution star Giancarlo Espositio reprising his role from season 3, and veteran actor Malcolm McDowell playing a history professor.
As stated, Community season 4 will premiere on Thursday, February 7, 2013 @ 8pm on NBC.
