'Community' First Look: The Study Group's 8-Bit Adventure (Exclusive Photos)
Community’s study group has ventured into alternate realities, the dreamatorium, battled zombie plagues, and they've been animated before, but this is a whole new level for the NBC comedy.
On Thursday’s episode, they become video game characters to help Pierce (Chevy Chase) stay in the one percent. And The Hollywood Reporter has a first look at the crew’s video game avatars.
Pierce stands to lose his inheritance to his late father’s second-in-command, Gilbert Lawson (Once Upon a Time and Breaking Bad actor Giancarlo Esposito). In order to stop him, the study group will have to play through the game.
Take a look at the crew as video game characters in the images above and below.
Community’s season finale night starts Thursday at 8 p.m. and then continues after the 30 Rock finale with episodes at 9 and 9:30 p.m. on NBC.
