NBC Delays COMMUNITY, Moves the Return of WHITNEY to Fridays

     October 8, 2012


NBC continues to kick Community to the curb.  The studio announced today that it would be bumping the season four return of the fan-favorite show from their expected Friday, October 19th date to an unspecified future date.  Sophomore comedy series, Whitney, will also be moving to Fridays, but that show’s debut date is up in the air as well.  NBC cited the need for more time to make a marketing push in the case of each series.

I can’t imagine that Community needs to be marketed any more, with the off-season fireworks of creator/showrunner Dan Harmon being let go; the fourth season will be run by Moses Port and David Guarascio.  I also can’t imagine a scenario in which marketing will get me to watch Whitney.  In the meantime, NBC will air re-runs of the first season of Grimm from 8-9pm on Fridays, which will lead into new episodes of the supernatural procedural.  Hit the jump to see who will be returning to Community if and when it returns.

THR reported that community-danny-pudi-danny-gloverNBC would be delaying Community yet again.  Assuming this is just business as usual and the show will actually return this fall, here’s a look at who you can expect to see at Greendale Friday nights:

The entire core cast of the show is returning, including Joel McHale, Yvette Nicole Brown, Donald Glover, Gillian Jacobs, Danny Pudi, Alison Brie, Chevy Chase, Ken Jeong and Jim Rash.

Newcomes include the recently added Brie Larson, James Brolin as Winger’s dad, Malcolm McDowell as a history professor and fellow faculty member, Matt Lucas.  Let’s hope that we get to see all of these guest stars soon.
