Community has long held a very special place in our hearts. The hilarious comedy is one of the most beloved in recent years. And many fans still call for “Six Seasons and a Movie!” Well, switch out that movie for a reunion and we’ve gotten our wish, as Community‘s cast and creator have came back together for a virtual table read.
The table read adapted a fan fave episode: “Cooperative Polygraphy,” which takes place almost entirely in the Greendale Community College library study room. The group comes together there after the funeral of Pierce (Chevy Chase). Pierce’s estate executor, Mr. Stone (played on the series by Walton Goggins), asks each member of the study group probing questions to make sure none of them murdered Pierce. Then he passes out bequests from Pierce.
Sadly for us, Goggins couldn’t make it for the table read, but stepping in for him was none other than Pedro Pescal.. This rad reunion—featuring Donald Glover, Joel McHale, Gillian Jacobs, Danny Pudi, Yvette Nicole Brown, Alison Brie, Jim Rash, and Ken Jeong—is in aid of José Andrés’ World Central Kitchen and Frontline Foods. Fans can donate here.
In addition to the table read, which originally hit the web on Monday, May 18, at 2:00 p.m. PT via Sony Pictures TV’s Community YouTube page—the cast answered a slew of fan questions during a Q&A introduced and moderated by Variety‘s Michael Schneider.
One of the many interesting tidbits to spring from the discussion was the revelation of a “lost” ending to the proper “Cooperative Polygraphy” episode in which guest star Levar Burton is seen losing his temper in traffic (while aboard a street-bound boat, mind you). Though none of the cast appears to have any memory of the scene, showrunner Dan Harmon insists on its existence. Just one of the many looming questions for the inevitable Community movie!
