According to a Sony TV rep, longtime actor and comedian Chevy Chase will be leaving the NBC comedy ‘Community’ effective immediately after an agreement was reached with the show’s producers. Chase’s discontent with the series has been well documented, the actor told the Huffington Post in an interview that he regretted taking the part explaining: “I just sort of hung around because I have three daughter and a wife, and I figured out I might as well make some bread every week, so I can take care of them in the way they want.”
Chases tumultuous relationship with the show’s creator Dan Harmon has been well documented and back in October, Chase lost control on set, complaining about the show and reportedly using the N-word. Most of the show’s final season has already been recorded. Chase and his character Pierce Hawthorne, will only be missing from the final one or two episodes.
