NBC's "Community" is not only one of the network's best comedies, it's also the most willfully bizarre series on television. And that's a good thing.

This fall, Joel McHale, Gillian Jacobs, Danny Pudi, Yvette Nicole Brown, Alison Brie, Donald Glover and Chevy Chase return for a third season as a mismatched study group at Greendale Community College. And in this newly released teaser trailer for the season, Jeff, Britta, Abed and the rest all promise to be less weird this year… albeit while stealing a page from "Glee" in the form of a showstopping musical number.

We also see Dean Pelton (Jim Rash) come face-to-face with his latest nemesis: John Goodman's Vice Dean Robert Laybourne, the malevolent head of Greendale’s nationally acclaimed air conditioning repair school.



Michael Kenneth Williams ("The Wire") has also joined the cast as the study group's "very intense" new professor. Mel Rodriguez ("Running Wild") will also recur as “Sergeant” Nuñez, a Greendale campus cop who takes his job way too seriously. And Ken Jeong's Senor Chang may be getting a new position of power over the study group, possibly with the help of Nuñez.

Don'f forget to enroll in "Community" when it debuts its third season on Thursday, September 22, only on NBC!
