'Community' Season 5 Promo: Things Are About To Get Very Dark

What does life beyond graduation mean? A lot of praying, according to the Greendale gang.

"This is the biggest crisis since we held that rally protesting the wrong Korea," Dean Pelton (Jim Rash) says ominously in the "Community Season 5: Beyond The Darkest Timeline" trailer above.

Soon enough the confessions start rolling out, complete with a very ... inappropriate revelation about Senor Chang (Ken Jeong) has really been up to in the study room.

Will the Greendale gang survive life after graduation? Find out when Season 5 premieres with back-to-back episodes on Thurs., Jan. 2 at 8 p.m. ET on NBC.
