Fall TV Preview

Community Sneak Peek: A Musical Number, A 'Less Weird' Promise, and More John Goodman

NBC has released another promo for Community Season 3, and this latest teaser features the Greendale gang making a major promise to viewers — in the form of a choreographed musical number.

So, what exactly is the Anthro gang declaring via song and dance? “We’re gonna have more fun and be less weird than the first two years combined,” Jeff Winger and Co. gleefully sing out.

Community‘s Danny Pudi Spies Chuck Cameo

Now, without knowing what exactly prompts such a wonderful performance — one packing such a big proclamation — we’re happy to just sit back and enjoy the fresh footage. Though, it must be noted that we’ve loved every second of Season 1 and 2 weirdness, so let’s hope it doesn’t change too much.

Also shown in the promo: additional John Goodman goodness, an Abed panic attack, and more.

Take a peek at the preview below, and catch Community‘s premiere Thursday, Sept. 22 at 8/7c.

  • less weird than the first two years combined just means that it will be the same level of weird, just not twice the weirdness i think… maybe my math is wrong though

    • “Less weird than the first two years combined” actually leaves them room to be significantly more weird than they’ve been in any single year.

      And that’s good thing, because Community without getting weird wouldn’t be worth it.

      Also, I’m really looking forward to John Goodman.

      • This!!

        Don’t change, Community! We love you for your weirdness and creativity.

  • I think the fact that they’re making the “less weird” promise in the form of a choreographed song and dance number qualifies it as “ironic” and “clearly a lie”.

    • Oh, and I for one wouldn’t have it any other way.

    • That’s kind of what I was thinking.

  • Of course, they say that they’re going to be less weird while putting on a giant musical number, complete with choreography (even just a second or two of a Community musical is better than two seasons of Glee… just sayin’)

    • Ha! Well put.

  • Chang is stupid. Season two felt forced everytime he intruded the storyline. Watching the reruns this summer, I 30 second skip his parts. Makes everything better.

    • WHAT?!?!?! I love Chang!!!

      Comment by WHAT?!?! – September 1, 2011 06:37 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Chang is exceptional. You are clearly out of your mind. And with Ken Jeong on set, they get a super actor AND a doctor. Bonus!

  • Love this show but not at all as much i love CHUCK. now that Danny pudi (Abed) makes an cameo in chuck i hope he promotes or says its name on season 3 cause Cougar town got already promoted ot would be cool… cool cool cool.

  • Season 3 is looking as good as the other two! I so cannot wait until the 22nd!

  • This show is fantastic! I don’t care what the Emmy people think: “Community” is the best comedy on television.

  • There’s an 85% likelihood of this joke in the season premiere:

    Any non-Jeff character: “Hey, did you hear? Dean Pelton has a beard.”
    Jeff: “Really? What’s her name?”

  • More people need to watch this show. For reals.

  • I cannot wait to buy the season 2 dvd next week (along with Parks and Rec) – commentaries for every episode of last season will help bridge the gap until season 3 starts. Community should win an Emmy for their DVD features alone.

  • “It will be okay”..when the shows returns on air!!

  • “I forgot everything you said before rectum!” SO Dean-like!!!

    Comment by Johnny – September 1, 2011 06:47 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • That entire thing was great, but my fav part is Dean Pelton’s last “eh”

  • Can’t wait, but did anybody notice that both of the previews so far focused on the dean and not the group? I wonder why that is

    Comment by Eric – September 1, 2011 08:07 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • I don’t think we have to be too concerned about less weird. After all, they’re singing it, the Dean and Shirley match, and Chang is wearing a money suit.

  • It is a shame that everyone thinks that the best comedies are on HBO or CBS or ABC… the two best comedies of the last decade have been Park and Rec and Community. Smart beyond their years.

    • I couldn’t agree more!!!
