Community Season Two DVD
  Season Two  

Premiere: September 23, 2010 — Finale: May 12, 2011 — DVD: Community The Complete Second Season    
Summary: The Study Group returns for their second year at Greendale which sees various relationships grow, change and possibly come to an end.

I think we're going to be able to go to places this season that sitcoms aren't traditionally known to go, but without shattering any timber of the fourth wall or without devolving into conceptional cutesiness. I want to keep the world real and the characters real, while just striving to entertain on a level that only a drowning man might.
Dan Harmon
