Community Premiere Postponed Indefinitely
Series creator and executive producer Dan Harmon will no longer serve as showrunner for the series beginning with the fourth season, as writers David Guarascio and Moses Port (co-creators of the short-lived Aliens in America) will take over as showrunners and executive producers. Sony Pictures Television, which produces the series with Universal Television, says that Harmon would serve as a consulting producer, but Harmon affirms he wasn't informed of any of this and will not return in a position without any executive prerogatives. The end of the third season also marks several other departures including executive producers Neil Goldman and Garrett Donovan, writer/producer Chris McKenna, actor/writer Dino Stamatopoulos, and frequent episode directors and executive producers Anthony and Joe Russo.
On October 8, 2012, it was reported that NBC had delayed the premiere of the fourth season, scheduled for October 19, 2012, without announcing a new date.
