Community was a show about a group of strangers that became great friends at an underfunded community college. With great writing in humor and almost an homage to great television shows and movies. Community became a cult classic while it was still on the air. Well, now they’re back as the Community Cast Returning to do Q&A with Donald Glover!
Most of the stars on the show you will recognize immediately. Community was one of those shows that was a rocket ship for everyone involved. Every cast member went on to critical success after the series. Joel McHale had his own talk show and successful stand-up career. Gillian Jacobs became a huge hit on shows like “love” on Netflix. Danny Pudi has starred in movies and series alike and is currently on “Mythic Quest.” Yvette Nicole Brown has constantly stayed busy being guest characters on popular shows like “Mom” on NBC. Alison Brie has a hit show called ” Glow” on Netflix and has starred in comedies with great actors like Will Ferrell and Jason Sudeikis. Donald Glover AKA Childish Gambino went on to direct, write and star in the great series, Atlanta and win Grammys for his music. The titular bad guy Chevy Chase who needs no accolades played the irredeemable Pierce Hawthorne, my personal favorite. If that is not enough star power to get you interested in the show and its reunions, the creator is Dan Harmon who is also the creator of Rick and Morty.
This entire cast is coming back to do a table read of one of the fan-favorite episodes “Cooperative Polygraphy.” This Live Read will be a charitable event where donations are encouraged. They will be doing an episode where Pierce has passed away and they are reading his will. Only to learn his unreasonable expectations. Pedro Pascal from recent Mandalorian Fame will voice the lawyer in this episode, replacing Walter Goggins who couldn’t make it.
As part of coronavirus relief efforts to benefit two charities, José Andrés’ World Central Kitchen and Frontline Foods, fans can donate to the Community fund on World Central Kitchen that will aid in supplying food to frontline responders and vulnerable communities.
Community ran for six seasons which became available on April 1st on Netflix. So catch up a little bit if you haven’t seen the show. I highly recommend it. Then tune in, Monday, May 18th and watch the live table read. The table read will be shown in its entirety, along with a Q&A of fan questions, on Monday, May 18, at 2 p.m. PT via Sony Pictures TV’s “Community” YouTube page.
What shows would you like to see do a reunion episode? Maybe an Office reunion or a Married With Children would be spectacular.
