Earlier this year, NBC pulled “Community” from its previously scheduled fourth season premiere date on Friday, October 19.
Fortunately, the cast of “Community” soon appeared in a video that convinced us that October 19 was really just a state of mind. Whenever “Community” Season 4 premieres will be October 19 in spirit. But actually, "Community" is coming back in early February; which means that we won’t be getting a timely Christmas episode this season.
Apparently neither will the students at Greendale. In this newly released video from NBC, Joel McHale introduces a brief clip from this season’s Christmas episode in which Dean Pelton (Jim Rash) helps the Greendale 7 Study Group enjoy a late celebration of the holiday.
There are a few things to notice about the preview:
– Abed (Danny Pudi) looks like he’s dressed as John McClane from the Die Hard films.
– Chang (Ken Jeong) has somehow been forgiven for taking over Greendale and kidnapping the Dean.
– Pierce (Chevy Chase) is the only main character not visible in this brief scene.
– And the Dean is still a creep!
“Community” returns to NBC on Thursday, February 7, 2013!
