NBC has raised a lot of eyebrows among Community fans when the network decided to axe its creator, Dan Harmon, from the staff. While that was a better outcome than the rumor that the show would be canceled, loyal watchers feared that without Harmon’s creative vision, the cult hit might lose some of the surreal kookiness that made it so delightful. Plus, NBC recently postponed the scheduled start date of October 19, with no hints as to when season 4 will finally drop.
But all may not be lost! Ellen DeGeneres recently showed a clip of the upcoming season on her show, so fans can get a peek at what to expect from the new team. The snippet features Jeff Winger dancing a fierce tango with the Dean. And the Dean is wearing a ravishing green-sequined dress. Seems promising! Take a look at actors Joel McHale and Jim Rash in the full clip below and judge for yourself.
The show has always been available on various digital platforms — in fact, it owes much of its success to a web savvy audience who enjoy sharing clips like the Abed “cool” supercut and watching on Hulu and NBC.com. That said, here’s the clip that’s going around now.
