Community returns to the UK after taking a year out main image

The brilliant US comedy from NBC first hit the UK airwaves back in October 2010 when MTV's Viva (formerly TMF) aired 2 episodes on Tuesdays at 10 PM.

The US fans are now watching series 3 episode 13 “Digital Exploration of Interior Design” while in the UK we are yet to see series 2. The radio silence from Viva about series 2 has left fans frustrated and fearing the worst. Then the news came that Viva hadn't acquired the rights to series 2 and it looked like the end for Community on UK TV.

However a saviour has been found in the form of Sony Entertainment Television who have acquired the rights to Community series 2 in the UK. Better yet the wait is almost over and Community returns to the airwaves on Tuesday 10th April at 10.30pm exclusively on Sony Entertainment Television (Sky 157/Virgin 193).

After watching the first series on Vivia I became a fan and was disappointed to see that Viva decided not to pick it up for the 2nd series. Although Sony Entertainment Television is bringing Community back to the UK it is disappointing that this great show hasn't been given a chance on a more prominent channel where it would have had a chance to garner a bigger UK audience.

Community created by Dan Harmon (“The Sarah Silverman Program”), is a smart comedy series about a band of misfits who attend Greendale Community College. At the centre of the group is Jeff Winger (Joel McHale, “The Soup”), a fast-talking lawyer whose degree has been revoked and has had to resort to going back to college.

Winger forms a study group who eventually learn more about themselves than their course work. The cast have a great chemistry and include comedy legend Chevy Chase (“Chuck”), Gillian Jacobs (“The Book of Daniel”), Yvette Nicole Brown (“Rules of Engagement”), Danny Pudi (“Greek”), Alison Brie (“Mad Men”), Donald Glover (“30 Rock”) and Ken Jeong (“The Hangover”).

Catch-up with Community videos and trailers now.
