Dan Harmon’s back, and so is the hope that NBC’s Community, which suffered through a rough fourth season without his (un)steady hand, can become a great comedy. We’re still three weeks away from the Jan. 2 premiere, but we now have a minute-long season five trailer to tide us over:
As you see, the early arc of the season is Jeff Winger’s return to Greendale after failing as a sleazy lawyer. Notably, Donald Glover will only appear in the first five episodes after leaving the the show for personal reasons he detailed in a surprisingly frank series of instagram messages. Harmon, the show’s original showrunner, has already promised that he’ll restore Community to its former glory, and though the trailer asks more questions than it answers, Jan. 2 will still be an exciting day for the comedy nerds among us.
