Community Season Finale Moved to May Sweeps

by at . Comments

Six seasons a movie? How about three new episodes in one night?

According to The Futon Critic, NBC has moved the hour-long season finale of Community (really just back-to-back installments) to May 17... the same evening it had already planned on running a new Community at 8 p.m, meaning the schedule that evening will look like this:

8 p.m. Community - “The First Chang Dynasty”
8:30 p.m. 30 Rock (season finale)
9 p.m. Community - “Introduction to Finality”
9:30 p.m. Community - “Digital Estate Planning” (season finale)

Jeff & Annie Look On In Shock

As for what you can expect from these Community episodes, read on for their official descriptions:

The First Chang Dynasty
With Chang in control of Greendale, the study group develops an elaborate plan to infiltrate the campus without being detected. While Chang becomes distracted planning a big birthday bash for himself, Jeff and the study group launch their sneak attack. Meanwhile, Troy enlists the help of the Air Conditioning Repair Annex to help with their break-in plan but knows he may be selling his soul to the devil.

Introduction to Finality
When Shirley and Pierce have a disagreement over their sandwich shop, Jeff agrees to argue on Shirley's behalf but much to his chagrin, Pierce retains Jeff's former colleague Alan Connor (guest star Rob Corddry) and the two must square off in "Greendale Summer Fun Court." Meanwhile, Vice Dean Laybourne (guest star John Goodman) makes one last ditch effort to win Troy over to his Air Conditioning Repair Annex.

Digital Estate Planning
Pierce is summoned to Hawthorne Enterprises to discuss his inheritance with his deceased father's former right-hand man, Gilbert Lawson (guest star Giancarlo Esposito) The study group goes with him for moral support and must all pitch in to play the video game of their life on Pierce's behalf - or risk losing his inheritance

I really hope Community is renewed for another season, I don't laugh at any other show as much as this one and I also need to see Jeff and Annie become a couple.

It's VERY good news. It means NBC wants to give the show a shot to be featured during May Sweeps, the most important couple weeks on the schedule in terms of advertisers.
