‘Community’ Season 5 Premiere Photos: The Greendale Gang is Back!
Just the other day, we caught our first look at ‘Community‘ season 5 in fresh new photos of Jeff and season-long guest star Jonathan Banks, but that wasn’t the only Greendale goodness NBC had to offer. Before we start celebrating the January 2 premiere, check out the full set of photos from ‘Community”s season 5 premiere, featuring the return of guest star Rob Corddry!
Though NBC has yet to grace us with a title for the first of two new episodes to air on ‘Community’ season 5′s January 2 premiere, we’ve at least got a sense of the plot that precipitates Jeff (Joel McHale)’s Greendale return. It seems the graduation of season 4 finale “Advanced Introduction to Finality” has stuck, with Jeff returned to his sleazy lawyer lifestyle (note the beard) alongside lawyer-rival Alan Connor (Corddry)
Judging by the shave, suit and boxes in other photos, it seems something will most certainly happen to return Jeff to Greendale, though his reception among the group seems a bit worse for wear by the dour expressions. And hey, what would a season premiere be without at least one fiery explosion?
In addition to ‘Arrested Development‘ star David Cross‘ guest turn as Jonathan Banks’ character’s son, ‘Community’ season 5′ will also see ‘Arrested’ creator Mitch Hurwitz guesting as a popular Greendale student, ‘Breaking Bad’ creator Vince Gilligan as “a smooth-talking gold digger,” Nathan Fillion guest starring as a mysterious janitor, ‘Justified‘ star Walton Goggins guesting as another mysterious man who causes trouble for the Greendale gang, Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim as associates of Dean Pelton, along with returns from Brie Larson, LeVar Burton and John Oliver’s Professor Duncan. Donald Glover will exit the series after 5 episodes, the justifications of which caused a stir for the actor over Instagram.
