The star of NBC’s cult comedy series teases its return in 2013.

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!
