Hot Video: Community Stars Explain the Crazy Shift Going on With the Season Premiere Date

Season 4 of NBC’s Community will premiere on Oct. 19. But seeing as today is Oct. 19 and clever comedy is nowhere to be seen on NBC’s schedule, the question becomes: When is Oct. 19?

    This is why this show is so frakking awesome! The cast really cares about their fans and they really love their job. #SIXSEASONSANDAMOVIE

  6. Jen says:

    Oh I miss Community. In honor of October 19th I will be in denial of October 19th!! (Hey Fringe isn’t on either). That means I don’t have to work tonight! I do work 7p to 7a. So I guess I’m forced to go in at midnight. Bummer bummer bummer!! NBC is being a bummer!! Happy Not October 19th Day!!

  7. Chiara says:

    Annie´s Boobs? Yeah, totally sounds like intelligent comedy

  9. Steve says:

    That really looks like Gus (Dule Hill, from Psych) in the poster in the background — anyone know?

  10. Katie G says:

    Today is my birthday – and Community premiering today was going to be my best present. NBC has ruined my birthday.

    But thank you, cast of Community, for what I feel is my own very special birthday message….. long live October 19th

    • JC says:

      Today is also Gillian Jacobs’ birthday. So perhaps it’s appropriate that NBC Britta’d it.

    • Angela says:

      Aw, that sucks, I’m sorry. Though, happy birthday!
      This was a really sweet, lovely, funny message. Thanks for reminding me once again just why I love this show and the cast. Here’s to October 19th, and may the show come back as soon as utterly possible.

  11. Thea says:


    I just needed to put that out there. I’m better now. (Or at least I will be… On Oct 19th… Whenever that is…)

  12. Mary says:

    Love Community! And no to Jeff/Britta romane!

  13. Teag says:

    Can’t wait for October 19th!

  14. noa says:

  15. Troy and Abed airing someday ! #sixseasonsandamovie

  16. LC says:

    It’s worrying how much I LOVE THIS SHOW! They are perfection and so wonderful for doing this. Made a bad day better. Also, shallow notes, how beautiful does Annie look? I hope they let her have that hair on the show!

  17. Bo says:

    DARN! I love this show so much that I delayed a date tonight with a hot model by an hour just so that i would have time to see the season premier!!! And you drop this on me! I and my roommates greatly await the October 19th premier…. When ever it may be….. All hail Annie’s Boobs!

  18. Crystal says:

    Brilliant! Thank you for reminding us why we love Community so much, to get us through the desolate months until October 19th arrives.

  19. James says:

    Community is amazing! It is 95% of the reason I subscribe to Hulu Plus.

  20. Sarabi says:
