“Six seasons and a movie” – that’s the promise made in the epic new trailer for season five of NBC’s Community. Season five launches on January 2, 2014 with a special one hour premiere kicking off at 8pm and promises a return to the Community of seasons one through three, with series creator Dan Harmon (fired after season three which led to a disappointing season four) back on board as executive producer.
This ensemble comedy centers around a tight-knit group of friends who all met at what is possibly the world’s worst educational institution – Greendale Community College.
At the center of the group is Jeff Winger (Joel McHale, The Soup), a fast-talking lawyer who was caught with a phony college degree. Winger was dis-barred until he could earn a legitimate degree and chose Greendale, thinking he could breeze through the mediocre school without a hitch. He, however, soon found himself the reluctant leader of a disparate group of misfits, all stuck at Greendale for different reasons.
The study group includes Britta Perry (Gillian Jacobs), who dropped out of high school to “change the world” and soon found herself in her thirties with no marketable skills; Shirley Bennett (Yvette Nicole Brown), a religious housewife who landed at Greendale after a messy divorce and is now blossoming into a headstrong entrepreneur; Abed Nadir (Danny Pudi), a socially awkward, but well-meaning, pop culture savant; Annie Edison (Alison Brie), a high-strung perfectionist; Troy Barnes (Donald Glover), a former high school football star still trying to find his way; and, Ben Chang (Ken Jeong), a former Spanish teacher who is either insane or an evil genius, or both.
At Greendale’s helm is Dean Pelton (Jim Rash), an administrator whose ineptitude is matched only by his love of the school and his devotion to his students.
