Pierce Hawthorne is officially leaving Greendale Community College. According to Deadline, Chevy Chase and the producers of the NBC cult comedy Community are parting ways by mutual agreement. With the departure being effective immediately, Chase won’t appear in 1 or 2 episodes of Community’s upcoming 13 episode fourth season. The departure doesn’t come as much of a surprise with controversy surrounding Chase and creator/former showrunner Dan Harmon, as well as his outspoken displeasure with the show. He told The Huffington Post UK in an interview this fall, “It was a big mistake! I just sort of hung around because I have three daughters and a wife, and I figured out I might as well make some bread, every week, so I can take care of them in the way they want … The hours are hideous, and it’s still a sitcom on television, which is probably the lowest form of television.” NBC recently announced the show would be returning on February 7th for the Season 4 premiere and will be airing in the Thursday @ 8 PM time slot.

And I leave you today with the Game Of Thrones teaser trailer to get you hyped up for March 31st. Sorry no footage or spoilers, but it’s still exciting!
