'Community' planning Dungeons & Dragons episode

Chevy Chase as Dungeon Master?

NBC’s Community is planning an upcoming episode centered around the cast playing the role-playing classic Dungeons & Dragons.

Unlike last year’s fan-favorite paintball episode, though, the D&D episode won’t go full tilt and have the cast, like, running around the forest with swords or anything, creator Dan Harmon said.

“They’re just sitting at a table playing,” he told critics at TCA press tour. “But it’s stylized to make it interesting and people are going to like it a lot.”

Another Very Special Episode coming up is set entirely around Chase’s character Pierce Hawthorne being in the hospital.

“I consider it special any time the episode doesn’t take place [on campus],” Harmon said. “Pierce is in the hospital the entire episode, it’s shot in a completely different way and is a completely different experience from the normal show.”

Excitingly vague!
