Yvette Nicole Brown

Syfy returns to the Reality Cosplay Competition Show with Cosplay Melee hosted by Yvette Nicole Brown (Community). The new series pits Cosplayers against each other in a weekly build format with the eventual lone survivor winning $10,000. The real question we all should be asking though is whether this will focus on the skills for Cosplay creation or just the drama that a timed competition brings out in everyone. Make no mistake, that time constraint will be the major factor in this show. When one considers that many cosplayers take weeks, if not months sometimes years to finish their cosplays from design to construction to convention. Check out the new trailer below. (more…)

The halls of Greendale Community College just became a bit less bubbly and quite a bit darker. Yvette Nicole Brown, who plays sandwich shop owner and study group member Shirley Bennett on NBC-now-Yahoo! Screen’s Community, has announced that she will be leaving the series, TV Guide reports. The actress was asked to be released from her contract with the show due to family concerns, specifically caring for her father, who is ill. (more…)

As in it’s not at all like October 19th because this newly announced premiere date of February 7th is over three months away! Sigh. Well, it’s better than NBC announcing they decided to can the show last minute, which is what I was beginning to fear.

The news broke from Community cast member, Yvette Nicole Brown, who tweeted out,

Something nice about the push back to February? Community will have its regular Thursday at 8pm time slot, not the dreaded Friday night slot.

It’s good news, not great news, but thank goodness we’ll eventually get back to Greendale.

Even with Dan Harmon‘s sudden exit from his creation, as well as the move to its new home on the Friday night “death slot”, NBC‘s Community has at least one glimmer of good news lately. Season four will see the return of the entire cast of the series.

According to Deadline, everyone will be back for the abbreviated fourth season of the comedic series, despite reports of some cast members moving on to new projects. Community premieres on October 19th, and will bring back series regulars Joel McHale, Danny Pudi, Alison Brie, Donald Glover, Yvette Nicole Brown, Chevy Chase and Gillian Jacobs in their return as the eclectic group of students from Greendale Community College. The only name not mentioned was Jim Rash – Dean Craig Pelton to the fans of the series – who may have yet to sign on.

Hopefully, Jim is only finishing the negotiations of his contract and we’ll see him again as well. New co-showrunners and executive producers David Guarascio and Moses Port will take over in this shortened 13 episode season produced by Sony Pictures Television. If this keeps up, fans may very well get their six seasons and a movie (fingers crossed).

After the sudden mid-season hiatus, the fan-fueled revival and the triumphant return of Dan Harmon‘s hit TV series Community, the network has given the green light for season four to air some time in 2012-2013.

The Hollywood Reporter confirmed earlier today that Sony Pictures will begin filming some time after the final three episodes air back-to-back one week from tonight on May 17th. While our time with the Greendale Community College will be quite a bit shorter than most other shows on the network with only 13 episodes in the upcoming season, we should be thankful; NBC could have just given everyone the finger and left the show in TV land limbo.

Starring Joel McHale, Gillian Jacobs, Danny Pudi, Yvette Nicole Brown, Alison Brie, Donald Glover, Jim Rash, Ken Jeong and Chevy Chase, this fourth season may be its last if the network has its way this time.

The return of the third season didn’t go as they had hoped, receiving only modest viewership ratings and with the sudden departure of writer-producers Neil Goldman and Garrett Donovan who left for 20th Century Fox, the season became more of a “here you go, be happy” kind of deal. Let’s face it, the only reason the remainder of season three was filmed and aired was because of the fans that were left after all the campaigning for the season’s completion.

Despite rumors of fan pushes and petitions online for “six seasons and a movie”, season four may become the graduation year for the students of Greendale and fans might have to accept that.

What do you think? Should NBC push for yet another season or has Community seen it’s last days?
