After the events of Season 4, Greendale College is in a stage of transition with the addition of new teachers and new students. Paired with the original gang, the result is more off-kilter hijinks for every Community fan to enjoy. Just one year after graduation, former student Jeff McHale is teaching at Greendale with Professor Hickey showing him the ropes and offering advice on how to handle rowdy students. Meanwhile, the death of Pierce leads to an investigation that exposes shocking discoveries among the group. As Troy leaves Greendale in search of new adventures, Annie and Abed search for a new roommate and the study group embark on an animated "G.I. Jeff" adventure, inspired by "G.I. Joe." By the end of the season, Subway has plans to purchase Greendale and the school board makes a shocking decision that affects the whole group’s future.

Special features include cast and crew commentary on every episode, outtakes, and two all-new, behind-the-scenes featurettes. "Re-Animating the '80s" gives an inside look at the team behind the animation of "G.I. Jeff" and the process of developing the look, script and characters. "Advanced Television Production: 5 Days, 2 Scripts, No Sleep" is a 42 minute in-depth and intimate look into the writers' room with creator Dan Harmon. The featurette documents Harmon as he writes two episodes in a very short amount of time, while managing his other duties as showrunner, from attending rehearsals and reshoots to meeting with the crew on upcoming productions issues.

Community was canceled by NBC, but has been picked up by Yahoo! Screen for a 13-episode sixth season.
