Though "Community" is currently benched, fans can rest assured that the show will indeed return with the remainder of season 3. In fact, an idea has been thrown for an upcoming episode of the sitcom, and it will pay tribute to police procedural "Law & Order".
According to TVLine, in "Basic Lupine Urology" which air date is yet to be announced, the Greendale gang will channel their inner Lennie Briscoes when the yam they are attempting to sprout for an experiment is demolished.
Believing that someone sabotages their science experiment, they embark on an crime investigation where Annie Edison channels her inner Jack McCoy and prosecutes the perpetrator "to the fullest extent of Greendale's Code of Conduct." Meanwhile, Professor Marshall Kane will act as the judge.
In addition to the crime-themed storyline, the said episode will reportedly include a reference to "Law & Order" by featuring the canceled legal drama series' signature "dun-dun" sound effect.
Recently at the TCA winter press tour, NBC Entertainment Chairman Robert Greenblatt made it clear that "Community" is not canceled. "I failed to explicitly say it will be back," he admitted before adding, "It will definitely be back later this spring."
Dishing on what's coming next on the show, Danny Pudi spilled that "the gang is hired as celebrity impersonators for a Bar Mitzvah" in an episode. Gillian Jacobs additionally teased, "Fans can look forward to seeing me dressed as my celebrity doppelganger... who is a man."
