Yvette Nicole Brown, who plays Shirley on the TV show 'Community,' tweeted today that the series will return to NBC on February 7 at 8 p.m, replacing '30 Rock,' which is finishing its seven-season run.
Costar Alison Brie also tweeted: “It’s true! Community is officially (for now) coming back Thurs, February 7th at 8pm!”
Fans of 'Community' are hoping this news isn't a false start as has happened before, reports Slate.com.
Citytv, a Canadian TV network, previously announced its premiere of 'Community' on November 9, but Citytv changed the date to January 11 and then announced: “no start date has been set yet.”
If 'Community' airs in Canada, a month before the U.S., then its young and loyal audience will probably find a way to download and upload pirated episodes on the web.
