The students of Greendale Community College are getting back together for a special Zoom call table read with show creator Dan Harmon, featuring all notable cast members — Donald Glover, Joel McHale, Gillian Jacobs, Danny Pudi, Yvette Nicole Brown, Alison Brie, Jim Rash and Ken Jeong — with the exception of Chevy Chase who plays Pierce, thus reuniting Troy and Abed for the first time since 2014.

Reading from Community‘s season five “Cooperative Polygraphy” bottle episode, the group members retreat to their regular study table after Pierce’s funeral, while they wait to hear the execution of his will from his lawyer, this time voiced by Pedro Pascal as the original actor for the role Walton Goggins couldn’t make it. Harmon wrote on Instagram: “He’s on some Disney show where Boba Fett’s in college with Yoda’s niece. In keeping with that theme, the part of Troy will be played by Lando. Yes, for real, the whole gang is back together. We got Horse Girl, we got Card Shark, we got ‘em all.”

As part of coronavirus relief efforts to benefit two charities, José Andrés’ World Central Kitchen and Frontline Foods, fans can donate to the Community fund on World Central Kitchen that will aid in supplying food to frontline responders and vulnerable communities.

Last month, we reported that Joe Russo is optimistic about a Community movie: “We’d certainly be willing to do it. We love our Community family… That cast, we’re all still very close to all of them. It’d certainly be schedule-depending for us. But I believe there will be a Community movie, especially now that it’s doing so well on streaming.”

For now, we are getting six seasons and a Zoom call, of which the former can be streamed in its entirety on Netflix and Hulu, and the latter will be aired on Monday, May 18 at 2 p.m. PDT on Community‘s YouTube page.

Today we Zoom a special reunion table read of the Community episode in which Pierce bestows frozen sperm from his grave. The incredible Walton Goggins can’t make it so Pedro Pascal will play Pierce’s lawyer. He’s on some Disney show where Boba Fett’s in college with Yoda’s niece. In keeping with that theme, the part of Troy will be played by Lando. Yes, for real, the whole gang is back together. We got Horse Girl, we got Card Shark, we got ‘em all. I don’t know the details of when it will be available, but don’t worry about missing it, we’re doing it for you. Also streaming it live could never happen because we have to edit out @yvettenicolebrown’s rants about storming Area 51. One more magical thing about today: the script we’re reading, Cooperative Polygraphy, is by Community and Rick and Morty alum Alex Rubens, who is BACK at RaM writing on season 6. He was wearing a suit in yesterday’s Zoom session because during lunch he was attending a Zoom funeral. Not a joke. Hard to tell jokes from life these days. These are odd times but everybody that worked on the show has been feeling the love and joy from all the rookie and veteran Community fans binging the show on Netflix. I’m going to go take the first pre-table read shower of my life. Sincere love to the fans and the cast, thanks for the best pre-Cody years of my life #sixseasonsandamovie
