Remember when Community was good? Those days might be returning. Case in point: there’s going to be another D&D episode! Also, David Cross will be in it, playing the son of Jonathan Banks’ (Mike from Breaking Bad, obviously) character. Oh yeah, didn’t you hear? He’s going to be on the show too.
Cross’s episode will be a follow-up to the now-classic 2011 Dungeons & Dragons half-hour (“Advanced Dungeons & Dragons,” for title purists). Per an official episode description, Cross will play Hank Hickey, the “bitterly estranged son” of Jonathan Banks’s previously announced character, Professor Hickey. Hank “joins the study group for, at the very least, the second most important game of Dungeons & Dragons ever.”
It seems like Harmon’s really going hard this season to make up for the injustice that was Season 4. According to Vulture, Vince Gilligan, Nathan Fillion, Rob Corddry, Brie Larson, Ben Folds, Tim and Eric, and many other big names will be making appearances in Season 5. LeVar Burton is even coming back!
And, given that a new D&D episode is in the works, it wouldn’t be a stretch to expect a few more sequel episodes. At the very least, I’d like to see something done with the Darkest Timeline that doesn’t absolutely suck *cough*Season 4 finale*cough*.
But will it be too little, too late for a show that was once one of the best shows on TV? Time will tell.
