The cast of beloved cult classic series (and Netflix addition) ‘Community‘ will be reuniting for an online table read this May 18 for Coronavirus relief efforts.
Most of the OG study group members are onboard the project, such as Joel McHale (Jeff), Gillian Jacobs (Britta), Donald Glover (Troy) Danny Pudi (Abed), Yvette Nicole Brown (Shirley), Alison Brie (Annie), Jim Rash (Dean Pelton), and Ken Jeong (Ben Chang).
Glover’s comeback is the most intriguing for fans, as ‘Community‘ was his big acting break before delving into music. Spoiler: he was kind of a lovable goofball, far from his Childish Gambino persona now.
The group will read the script for season 5, episode 4’s ‘Cooperative Polygraphy‘ – a bottle episode where they commemorate the death of fellow study group member (and old coot) Pierce Hawthorne, played by Chevy Chase.
Curiously, Chevy didn’t sign on the online project, probably given his previous creative spats with showrunner Dan Harmon (Rick and Morty) that led to his eventual exit from the show.
During the table read, viewers will be asked to donate to José Andrés’ World Central Kitchen and Frontline Foods, which prepare meals for frontliners during this pandemic. The project will be streamed on Sony Picture TV’s YouTube channel.
