Chevy Chase Parts Ways with ‘Community’
So long, Pierce Hawthorne.
Community's resident bigoted millionaire will be dropping out of Greendale Community College, as it was announced that Chevy Chase will be leaving the NBC comedy. Although it was reported the decision is mutual, there have been claims previously about Chase's frustration with his character and clash with former showrunner Dan Harmon.
Most of the show's upcoming fifth season has been filmed, although it has not been confirmed whether or not his exit will be written into the show.
None of the other actors will be leaving the show, and Chase's departure is not expected to impact production.
Community will begin airing its final season on February 7 at 8pm on NBC.
