Joel Mchale - College Comedy 'Community' Set to Return Next February

Fans of the instant cult hit Community were distraught last month when the return of the show was put back indefinitely. In the largely uncertain world of television, many questioned whether the show would return at all. However, NBC has now confirmed that the comedy, set around a mishmash of students in a community college, will be returning to its regular Thursday time slot next February. It was created by Dan Harmon and stars Joel McHale and Gillian Jacobs.

Fingers crossed this second start date for the fourth season wont be pulled as it was from its original October start date. Its slot on Thursdays will be replacing 30 Rock, which, by then, will have ended its final series. Sob. The first episode will air on February 7th, the news of which comes amid news about plenty of other new and returning comedies. As HitFix says 1600 Penn will be premiering in january- a new comedy set in the White House and starring Bill Pullman, Jenna Elfman and Josh Gad. Plus, 'Up All Night' which is currently airing will be cut midseason and returning having been revamped and 'redveloped as a multi-camera comedy'. Time will tell if those changes will help it succeed.

The Office spinoff 'The Farm' has this week been cancelled, but The X-Factor, Arrow and Homelands have all been set for renewal.
