After a lot of behind-the-scenes turmoil that resulted in the departures of creator/executive producer Dan Harmon and co-star Chevy Chase since Community ended its fourth season, the quirky comedy is finally returning on the air on Feb. 7 to kick off its 13-episode fifth season in its old Thursday 8 Pm slot. Despite all the changes, “I think you’ll see relatively the same show that you did before, maybe with a little bit more heart built into it. But we didn’t fundamentally change it,” NBC boss Bob Greenblatt said after the NBC executive session at TCA. The abbreviated fourth season is not perceived as the show’s swan song. “We’re absolutely hopeful it will lead to a fifth season,” Greenblatt said. “I’d love nothing more than to see it continue.” Ray Richmond contributed to this report. »
