Chevy Chase to Graduate from Community?

by at . Comments

Will Community return for a fourth season? The odds are looking stronger each week, as this sitcom performs steadily at 8 p.m. on Thursdays for NBC.

But will Chevy Chase return as Pierce Hawthorne if the network does give the funniest show on television a green light? It's growing increasingly unlikely.

Chase and creator Dan Harmon have rarely been on the same page since Community premiered, but the feud has reportedly hit its apex. Deadline states that Chevy walked off the set last month during the final day of shooting season three, an uprising Harmon responded to by telling the actor off at the cast wrap party, which was attended by family and friends.

In response to that move, Chase left Harmon a curse-laden voicemail that has found its way to the Internet.

The Huffington Post, meanwhile, has published excerpts of an interview with Chase from earlier this year, in which the actor says he "can't stand sitcoms" and adds of his role on Community: "I probably won't be around that much longer, frankly."

With Community itself on the bubble, it's hard to look too far into the future. But if the series does get renewed, do you care if Chase comes back with it? Would you miss Pierce on the show?

Need to keep pierce but changs a badass


Hmmm...sounds like both Chase and Harmon are acting like petulant children. The show could survive without Pierce Hawthorne, really. If 2 & 1/2 Men can go on without Charlie Sheen, Community won't have a problem.


if we "WERE" talking about Season 1 Pierce; the show wouldnt be the same without him
BUT with the Pierce we have been seeing lately i could go either way
BUT i definitely do NOT want more of the Chang we have been seeing lately


Your poll is way skewed.... But Chevy Chase's character has languished for at least this season. EVen if he gets a storyline, it's separate from the others. Let the man go.


Community should be renewed for a fourth season. However, instead of Chevy Chase being a student he should be hired as a new teacher.
