The Community Cast Reacts to Recent Headlines -- Which News Made Jim Rash Get Up to Leave?

There were many, many headlines for the Community cast to react to when a quorum visited TVLine’s Comic-Con suite.

VIDEO | Community Creator Dan Harmon Talks Donald Glover’s ‘Devastating’ Exit, the Return of Jeff, New Characters and… an Animated Episode!

After squeeing over the (surprising!) Season 5 pick-up and Dan Harmon’s (surprising!) return as showrunner, Michael Ausiello briefed Yvette Nicole Brown, Gillian Jacobs, Jim Rash, Ken Jeong, Danny Pudi and Alison Brie on brand-new scoop dropped earlier by Harmon himself — including the NBC comedy’s first stab at a 100-percent animated episode, his plans Jeff/Annie romance and a possible *i**s**r-themed outing.

But the big topic, of course, was Donald Glover‘s imminent exit from the series, after Season 5’s fifth episode. Rash, for one, sought a silver lining in “the possibilities of what this means for Abed,” while Pudi noted the best buds’ separation was “sort of inevitable.”

Also in this video Q&A: A fervid debate over whether Community will run 100 episodes or, like, 97.
