Yes! 20 New Photos From 'Community' Season 5


Class is officially back in session at Greendale Community College! To mark the occasion, NBC has released a bevy of new "Community" Season 5 photos.

"Community" will return with back to back episodes "Repilot" and "Introduction to Teaching" on Jan. 2. Along for the ride this year is "Breaking Bad" star Jonathan Banks. He'll make his first appearance in the second episode.

Not only did "Community" receive a surprise renewal from NBC after a critically panned fourth season, the network also delighted fans of the series by bringing back creator Dan Harmon for the upcoming new season.
