COMMUNITY to Get Animated for Holidays

Community (NBC) Season 2 Cast

Community‘s second season hasn’t even premiered yet and already I can’t wait for its holiday episode.

TV Guide reports that the show will celebrate Christmas with a stop-motion animated episode using the style of Rudolph the Red Nosed-Reindeer and Santa Claus is Comin’ to Town.

Executive producer Dan Harmon, who co-wrote the episode with Dino Stamatopolous (Star-burns), told reporters “It’s going to be like a timeless Christmas classic in the stop-motion medium that used to give us so much happiness as children.”

He elaborated that it would not necessarily be a departure from the normal show. “There’s a reason for it to be stop-motion animated, but it’s not a dream. It still exists within the reality of the show.” He also noted that characters will be able to refer to the episode’s events afterwards.

The second season of Community premieres on NBC Thursday, September 23 at 8pm/7 central. You can find all the fall premiere dates and times here.

Are you as excited as I am to see animated versions of all our favorite Greendale students?
