Sony Pictures TV, the studio that produces Community, has picked up the options for every cast member, including Chevy Chase, who was embroiled in a very public feud with creator Dan Harmon last season. Sony and NBC have since reduced Harmon's role to that of consulting producer. He was replaced by new showrunners David Guarascio and Moses Port, perhaps opening the door for Chase to return.
The news comes on the heels of the announcement that Community will be returning to Comic-Con next month, with cast members Joel McHale, Alison Brie, Danny Pudi, Yvette Nicole Brown and Gillian Jacobs appearing on a panel for the show. Chase is unavailable to attend, which initially sparked speculation that he might not be returning to the series.
Community returns on Friday, Oct. 19 at 8:30/9:30c. Are you glad to have the whole gang back?
