“Community” is making its triumphant return after being rescued by Yahoo Screen, but the first trailer for the upcoming sixth season of Dan Harmon’s sitcom shows that it’s business as usual at Greendale Community College.
Of course, there have been a few changes since the show was canceled by NBC. The most glaring one is the exit of Nicole Yvette Brown, who played Shirley on the show for its first five seasons. Her exit comes after Chevy Chase and Donald Glover left the show during the show’s fifth season.
The show addresses her absence in the most meta way possible, by introducing Paget Brewster as “New Shirley,” which takes the show’s diversity quotient down a notch. Joel McHale, Alison Brie, Gillian Jacobs, Danny Pudi, Ken Jeong and Jim Rash are all reprising their roles.
Also being “Community,” there are plenty of crazy hijinks, including raining Frisbees and other forms of costumed battles.

“Community” will stream on Yahoo! Screen starting Tuesday, March 17 with one episode airing per week, eschewing the typical streaming model of releasing all episodes at once.
