‘Community’ Season 5 Premiere Sneak Peeks, Plus Details of Donald Glover’s Exit

Following last week’s epic “Beyond the Darkest Timeline” trailer for ‘Community‘ season 5, about the only way NBC has left to promote the Greendale gang’s return lies in two new clips from the January 2 premiere itself! Find out what brings Jeff and the study group back to Greendale’s hallowed halls, as well as when we’ll say goodbye to Donald Glover!

Our first sneak peek of season 5 premiere “Repilot” sees former ‘Daily Show‘ correspondent and ‘Hot Tub Time Machine‘ franchise vet Rob Corddry returning as Jeff’s former partner-turned-rival Alan Conner, arriving with a surprising offer after Jeff’s post-Greendale firm goes belly up. That could presumably explain Jeff’s gathering the study group in the second clip, before the group are surprised by yet another bizarre return.

Elsewhere, TVLine scored a few details on Donald Glover’s ultimate exit from the series by a visit to the set, in which the cast revealed that Troy will field a “tantalizing offer” that will send him on a journey of self-discovery, though not one that lacks a proper buildup or a heartfelt goodbye. “It’s not a ‘happy ending,’” per se, says series star Joel McHale. “Abed is losing his best friend and that’s very sad. But within that sad thing happening, [creator] Dan Harmon puts in lightning bolts of jokes and it’s great.”

In addition to ‘Arrested Development‘ star David Cross‘ guest turn as the onscreen son of Jonathan Banks, ‘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”s Walton Goggins as a private investigator, Chris Elliott as Greendale’s estranged founder, Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim as associates of Dean Pelton, along with returns from Brie Larson, LeVar Burton and John Oliver’s Professor Duncan.

Get your first look at ‘Community”s most exciting season yet in the new “Repilot” sneak peeks above and below, and tell us in the comments what you want to see from the January 2 premiere!
