The brand new season of Community premieres on Yahoo next month, and it looks like fans can expect at least one appearance by Pierce Hawthorne. Chevy Chase revealed the news in his Reddit AMA yesterday: "I will be in a small cameo at the beginning of Community and if they ask me to come back and do one or two appearances, it's a possibility." A Yahoo spokesperson didn't confirm the news at this time, but unless Chase doesn't realize that his season 5 premiere cameo aired on NBC almost a year ago, there's no better confirmation than from Pierce himself.
Few people would relish the opportunity to have their lives documented in the midst of a low point peppered with job loss, substance abuse, self-doubt, and relationship woes, but in talking to Dan Harmon, it seems that he would have it no other way. In the recently released documentary Harmontown, director Neil Berkeley takes us along on a 20-date live podcast tour with Harmon and his cohorts after Harmon's dismissal from Community and during a somewhat uncertain time in his career and personal life.

UPDATE: According to a rep at Yahoo, the rumors circulating about Brie not returning to Community next year are false. Thankfully, Yahoo has confirmed that the Community cast — including Brie — are all on board for next year. Dan Harmon also confirmed Brie's return on Twitter.

Recently a Redditor decided to edit episodes of Seinfeld, Friends, and The Big Bang Theory to include only plot information and no jokes, and the result was an interesting look at how all three shows approach story and punchlines. If those three shows weren't enough, the same Redditor has gone and edited episodes of Community, The Office, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Everybody Loves Raymond, The Simpsons, Family Guy, South Park, and Rick and Morty. Of all the shows highlighted in this series so far, The Office currently has the smallest plot with a clip that lasts just over a minute, while Adult Swim's Rick and Morty leads the pack with [...]
At yesterday's Community Comic-Con panel, Dan Harmon and crew gave a few hints as to what we can expect from the show's in-the-works sixth season on Yahoo. Aside from telling the audience that the new episodes won't be available until "probably sometime after Christmas," Harmon also revealed that Community won't be binge-friendly and is slated to premiere a new episode each week instead of premiering the entire season at once.
Harmon also addressed a fan's question about the state of Donald Glover's character Troy, and he responded with this tease: "Troy's out there somewhere. He may be in peril. That's what movies are made of." [...]
