|"Community: The Complete Fourth Season" is the official DVD release of Season Four. Unlike previous DVD sets it has only thirteen episodes and marks the debut of new showrunners and Executive producers Moses Port and David Guarascio. It is the first Season without creator and former showrunner Dan Harmon who, despite being credited as "consultant", had no creative involvement at that time with the show. Special features include cast and crew commentary on every episode, outtakes, deleted and extended scenes, and two all-new behind-the-scenes featurettes. The DVD was released on August 6, 2013.|
The Season synopsis as it appears on the DVD cover:
|“||Entering their epic senior year at Greendale Community College, these people aren't just a study group, they're family! They'll have to be, if they hope to survive a comedy-crammed year with everything from an alienating sci-fi convention, a German re-invasion and a Thanksgiving dinner from hell, to a hostage-taking Christmas, a life-changing father/son reunion and even a transformation into puppets! In its wildly inventive fourth season, this phenomenal comedy hits an incredibly hilarious new level! Prepare to "Pop! Pop!" with laughter. The Players: Joel McHale, Gillian Jacobs, Danny Pudi, Yvette Nicole Brown, Alison Brie, Donald Glover, Jim Rash, Ken Jeong, Emmy winner Chevy Chase and a Community of All-Star Guests.||”|
