Six seasons and a table read!

The cast of hit comedy series Community are getting together – like the Chuck cast (here) – with creator Dan Harmon for a virtual table read and Q&A, in order to benefit COVID-19 relief efforts.

The whole cast will be there – yes, even Donald Glover – except for Chevy Chase who left the show after four seasons due to, em, creative differences.

Stars Joel McHale, Gillian Jacobs, Danny Pudi, Yvette Nicole Brown, Alison Brie, Jim Rash, Ken Jeong and Glover are all set to join the table read, along with Harmon.

The table read will be shown in its entirety, along with a Q&A of fan questions (see below), on Monday, May 18th, at 2 pm PT via Sony Pictures TV’s “Community” YouTube page. The cast is set to read “Cooperative Polygraphy,” the fourth episode of Season 5, which first aired January 16, 2014 on NBC.

Fans will be asked to contribute to two charities: José Andrés’ World Central Kitchen and Frontline Foods, both of which are involved in COVID-19 relief efforts to get fresh, nourishing meals to responders working on the frontlines and vulnerable communities across the country.

Sony Pictures Television will contribute to the charities on behalf of the “Community” family, while fans will also be asked to donate to the “Community” fund here.

Could this give more hope to the fans hoping for more Community? Well, McHale recently said: “There’s way more rumblings than there used to be,” he said last month. “I think with the renewed interest, and I know the cast is interested, that it could happen.”

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
