The official word: Our favorite study group is back at Greendale Community College
Aug. 5 when Sony Pictures Home Entertainment releases COMMUNITY: THE COMPLETE FIFTH SEASON on DVD. The fifth season reunites popular creator Dan Harmon with his funny and quick-witted ensemble cast.
Led by Joel McHale (TV’s “The Soup”), Community also stars Gillian Jacobs (TV’s “The Good Wife”), Danny Pudi (TV’s “Greek”), Yvette Nicole Brown (TV’s “Rules of Engagement”), Alison Brie (TV’s “Mad Men”), Donald Glover (TV’s “Girls”), Ken Jeong (The Hangover Part III) and Academy Award® winner Jim Rash (Best Writing,
Adapted Screenplay; The Descendants, 2011). In the fifth season, Greendale College is in a stage of transition with the addition of new teachers and new students. Paired with the original gang, the result is more off-kilter hijinks for every Community fan to enjoy.
COMMUNITY: THE COMPLETE FIFTH SEASON contains all 13 episodes on a two-disc DVD set, featuring cast and crew commentary on every episode, outtakes, and two all-new, behind-the-scenes featurettes. “Re-Animating the ‘80s” gives an inside look at the team behind the animation of “G.I. Jeff” and the process of developing the look,
script and characters. “Advanced Television Production: 5 Days, 2 Scripts, No Sleep” is a 42 minute in-depth and intimate look into the writers’ room with creator Dan Harmon. The featurette documents Harmon as he writes two episodes in a very short amount of time, while managing his other duties as Showrunner, from attending rehearsals and reshoots to meeting with the crew on upcoming productions issues.
Guest stars in the fifth season include Jonathan Banks (TV’s “Breaking Bad”), John Oliver (TV’s “Last Week Tonight with John Oliver”), Mitch Hurwitz (TV’s “Arrested Development”), Vince Gilligan (TV’s “Breaking Bad”), Brie Larson
(21 Jump Street), David Cross (TV’s “Arrested Development”), Walton Goggins (TV’s “Justified”), Rob Corddry
(In A World…), Nathan Fillion (TV’s “Castle”) and many more.
The fifth season of "Community" finds Jeff (McHale) teaching at Greendale one year after graduation. Meanwhile, the death of Pierce (Chase) leads to shocking discoveries among the group. Troy (Glover) leaves Greendale in search of new adventures; Annie (Brie) and Abed (Pudi) search for a new roommate; Professor Hickey (Banks) shows Jeff the ropes; and the school board makes a shocking decision that affects the whole group. An animated episode is featured.
