Donald Glover, Danny Pudi
Even though we knew it was coming, last week's Community dropped a major bomb on viewers: Troy (Donald Glover) was leaving Greendale to sail Pierce's boat around the world in order to get millions of dollars (and become a man, or whatever).
"I thought that the writer's did a really great job of working it into the script in a really interesting and still very sentimental way," Alison Brie tells TVGuide.com of Glover's decision to exit the series. And according to the actress, who plays Annie on the NBC comedy, Thursday's episode will act as an "amazing farewell" to Troy.
Joel McHale, Walton Goggins, Ken Jeong
When news of Pierce's (Chevy Chase) death jarringly interrupted the search for the A--crack Bandit, many fans felt his passing wasn't treated with the respect it deserved. This week, "Cooperative Polygraphy" proves Pierce's death wasn't simply a footnote in Community history when the arrival of his executor Mr. Stone (Walton Goggins) demonstrates the continuing influence Pierce has on the Study Group.
Beverly D'Angelo and Chevy Chase
Former Community co-star Chevy Chase is looking to return to primetime and reunite with an old friend. ABC is developing a project with Chase and his Vacation co-star Beverly D'Angelo for the 2015-2016 TV season.
Deals have just closed with Chase and...
SPOILER ALERT: If you haven't watched the Season 5 premiere of Community yet, do not read any further.
The return of Community executive producer Dan Harmon to the series he created — and then was fired from — was a shock enough. But fans of the show were in for another surprise Thursday night, as another exiled Community member made a brief return:
Donnie Wahlberg and Jenny Mccarthy
Our top moments of the week:
8. Don't Caption This Award: MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry lands in hot water during her "What's So Funny About 2013?" segment when her panelists, actress Pia Glenn and comedian Dean Obeidallah, take aim at Mitt Romney's grandson Kieran, who is black. "One of these things is not like the others; one of these things is not the same," Glenn says after the family's Christmas photo pops up. Obeidallah adds: "I think that this picture is great. It really sums up the diversity of the Republican Party. The RNC — at the convention — they find the one black person." Harris-Perry chimes in as well, joking that...
Fans of Community are understandably wary about the fifth season, given the fairly hollow simulacra that aired last spring. But with the return of creator Dan Harmon, the show has regained the sense of deliberate chaos and freewheeling playfulness that originally earned it such a devoted (and vocal) fan base.
For Harmon's unprecedented return, you can thank none other than Joel McHale, who played a crucial role in NBC bringing back the controversial showrunner. Comparing Harmon to Vince Gilligan (Breaking Bad) and Mitch Hurwitz (Arrested Development), both of whom are guest-starring this season, McHale preached the benefits of letting a series be dictated by a singular vision. "There was some really good stuff last year, but it did not....

NBC couldn't kill Community, even if it tried — and it definitely tried. But lengthy hiatuses and unusual scheduling (including Thanksgiving and Christmas episodes airing last spring) wouldn't destroy it. A controversial decision to replace creator Dan Harmon as showrunner last season couldn't slay it. Even all that Twitter chatter about "six seasons and a movie" didn't jinx it.
"Community is like a Twinkie," says Yvette Nicole Brown, who plays Shirley, perhaps the sweetest of the community-college study-group members who form the show's heart. "The shelf life of this show has defied odds."
