Chevy Chase leaving NBC’s ‘Community’

Move not unexpected after actor fought with showrunner

Chevy Chase is dropping out of Greendale Community College.

Comedy star has departed NBC’s “Community,” but will still be seen in the majority of episodes that have been shot for the upcoming fourth season. The laffer returns to the Peacock lineup on Feb. 7 in its 8 p.m. Thursday timeslot.

One of the original “Saturday Night Live” Not Ready for Primetime Players, Chase has long stated his unhappiness on the Sony-produced series. He publicly feuded with former showrunner Dan Harmon and has often derided the quality of the show.

“Community” has never earned strong ratings for NBC, but it has a vocal fan base and demos that resonate with higher income families. Because of that, the net decided to bring the show back in midseason.

News was first reported on Deadline.
