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

Get More: Premieres, Video

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?

In this new video, the Troy and Abed in the Morning! show hosts explain that Oct. 19 is but a state of mind. So, whenever — and we do mean wheneverCommunity does unspool its new run, that day will be Oct. 19 — in your heart.

  • 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!!

    • Annie’s Boobs is the name of the Monkey. Way comment on something you clearly know nothing about, Troll.

        • Which of course has now been cancelled. Man, staying topical and current is hard in comedy…

    • Do you even know who Annie’s Boobs is?

  • 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

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

    • 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.

  • 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!

  • 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!
