<i>Community</i> Sources Reveal Plan to Write Out Chevy Chase

Last week it was announced that Chevy Chase would be leaving Community immediately, which left fans to wonder how the writers would handle his departure.

TVLine reports that Pierce Hawthorne is one of several characters whose ultimate fate will be part of the season four finale cliffhanger. If NBC then decides to renew the show (fingers crossed!), the writers won’t have to come up with an elaborate explanation for Pierce’s absence.

“[Episode 413] wasn’t intended to set up his departure,” notes an source. “It just worked out that way.”

Community’s fourth season is set to kick off Feb. 7 at 8 p.m. EST on NBC.
