'Community' Season 4: Chevy Chase, Rest Of The Cast Returning

The entire Study Group will be back for "Community" Season 4, including Chevy Chase. According to, Chase will return to the cult-favorite NBC comedy for its fourth season.

Speculation about Chase's potential departure ran rampant in the spring of 2012 after news of a feud between Chase and "Community" creator Dan Harmon leaked.

The last time HuffPost TV's Maggie Furlong visited the set of "Community," Chase was vocal with his displeasure and said, "I have creative issues with this show. I always have ... I probably won't be around that much longer, frankly."

However, prior to the Season 4 renewal -- and firing of Harmon -- Joel McHale seemed confident Chase would return with the rest of the Greendale gang. He told Wendy Williams Chase would probably be back and said to a room full of reporters that he expected Chase to return.
