NBC is gearing up for its 2014 season with a string of highly anticipated shows. Among these series is cult comedy Community, the hot drama Chicago Fire, the second half of the highly acclaimed Blacklist and an all new season of The Voice.
NBC kicks off the new year on January 2, with the long awaited return of Community. The fifth season of the cult comedy will come with a few big changes. Not only will the class/cast be shook up with the departure of Chevy Chase, but Donald Glover will also take on a much smaller role for the new season. However, this season does mark the return of series creator, Don Harmon, to the show. The new season will also bring on Castle’s Nathan Fillion, for a very special guest appearance.
