Chevy Chase to Exit Community

Chevy Chase to Exit Community

November 22, 2012 by Marc Berman in Highlights with 0 Comments

UNHAPPY STAR DEPARTS IN UPCOMING SEASON FOUR

Chevy Chase, who has publicly criticized Community and feuded with former showrunner Dan Harmon, has exited the NBC sitcom. The original star of Saturday Night Live (and first to leave that series, in fact) has mutually agreed to depart. Most of the 13 ordered episodes in the upcoming fourth season have already been shot, and they include Chase. But he will not appear in the final few, and it is unknown how, or if, his departure will be addressed.

Perennially ratings-challenged Community will open its new season in the Thursday 8 p.m. half-hour effective on February 7. The original plan was Fridays at 8:30 p.m. this fall out of sophomore Whitney, but NBC shelved it until midseason for fear the lower HUT levels on Friday would not be beneficial.
