Community, and its original executive producer Dan Harmon, returns to NBC on Thursday, Jan. 2 at 8 pm ET with two back-to-back episodes. And it’s about time we get a look into what the fifth go-around looks like. Judging by the just released teaser, Harmon and his genre-bending brain is truly back. Instead of a straight-ahead video preview, we find the crew at Greendale embedded in the type of trailer you’d see for an indie comedy. It’s enough to say here that Jeff’s career in law has stalled and he’s found himself back with Troy, Abed, Britta, Annie et al— but in much different circumstances. Check it out.
Of course, everything you just watched above can turn out to be not-at-all an indication to what will happen in season five. Harmon is good like that. And Community fans love to be kept on their toes. So we’ll just have to wait and see what our favorite study group gets up to when the show finally returns to NBC.
