Pop! Pop! With Community’s season four premiere set for February, there has been a lot of drama behind the scenes of NBC’s cult comedy series on NBC. Community’s creator and showrunner Dan Harmon was fired after the third-season finale, staff writers are jumping ship to other network comedies, and series regular Chevy Chase has left the series with only two episodes left in the fourth season. But now there’s a silver lining: NBC has released a teaser, which highlights Community’s tribute to The Hunger Games. Watch the teaser below.
A few months ago, EW released the first look at Community‘s fourth season. They revealed that the season premiere would be a spoof of the wildly popular Hunger Games series. This was back when the season premiere was still slated for October 19, 2012. Since then, the Community premiere was pushed from October to February, among rumors that this will be its final season.
The future is very uncertain for Community, but this new teaser is hilarious! It features The Hunger Deans with Katniss EverDEAN (get it?) and a hipster Britta (Gillian Jacobs). What more do you need?
The premise of the premiere will involve Dean Pelton (Jim Rash) as he scrambles to put together a Hunger Games-like competition where the victor will be enrolled in a super-easy “History of Ice Cream” class. It sounds very similar to Community’s legendary paintball episodes, only with an obstacle-course death match instead.
Community’s season four premiere episode, entitled “History 101,” will air February 7th on NBC.
