Serial on-the-bubble comedy "Community" will make its cable TV premiere Sept. 15 on Comedy Central. That means all you folks who missed its early seasons on NBC—and there are many of you—have the chance to experience what you were missing.
The show's Comedy Central run begins with a 10-episode block of fan-favorite episodes from 11 a.m.-10 p.m. CT Sept. 15, the network announced Thursday.
The cramming really begins Sept. 20, when the network will air four episodes of "Community" every Friday from 8 p.m.-10 p.m. beginning with Season 1. During the Friday premieres, super fans can use the hashtag #Community for a chance to see their tweets on-air.
NBC has said it plans to air the final episodes of "Community" in the coming 2013-14 season.
More from Comedy Central: To help prepare for the beginning of the term, COMEDY CENTRAL will schedule programming blocks of content that have featured the stars of "Community," along with college-themed movies and scholastic-themed episodes of its own original series at 8 p.m.-10 p.m. every Friday from Aug. 9 through Sept. 13.
The critically-acclaimed "Community" is a half-hour comedy series about a tight-knit study group at Greendale Community College. At the center of the group is Jeff Winger (Joel McHale), a fast-talking lawyer whose degree has been revoked. With some help from his fellow classmates, Winger forms a study group who eventually learn more about themselves than their course work. Among the series stars who comprise the group are Chevy Chase, Gillian Jacobs, Yvette Nicole Brown, Danny Pudi, Alison Brie, Donald Glover, Ken Jeong and Jim Rash. "Community'" will return on NBC with its fifth season in midseason.
"Community" was created by Dan Harmon who serves as executive consultant. Russ Krasnoff is executive producer, along with Gary Foster, Moses Port and David Guarascio. Tristram Shapeero is executive producer/director. The series is a Krasnoff Foster Entertainment production, in association with Universal Media Studios and Sony Pictures Television.
