Yes, the previously-stated season premiere date for "Community" may come and go this week -- with no official word about when it will indeed air -- but The Study Group filmed a short video for all us fans, reassuring us that "October 19th is a state of mind."
The video takes place as a "Troy and Abed in the Morning" sketch:
Abed: "Welcome to our fourth season. We spoke to the powers-that-be, and we agreed to premiere on October 19th --"
Pierce: "What powers that be?! It's just the two of you pretending to have a show!"
Troy (under his breath): "Sometimes it feels that way..."
Nope, nopey-nope-nope...no bitterness here! (The line about how the network decided to give the monkey "Annie's Boobs" its own show is another dig, referring to the recently-cancelled "Animal Practice")
Flash Mob! Flash Mob!
However -- the fact that this video is airing on NBC's official YouTube itself, and not, say, Dan Harmon's secret Rebel Basement, is a good sign that all is not lost for "Community."
