* MeanCharacterNiceActor: VERY PlayedWith regarding the racist Pierce and Chevy Chase, although Chevy Chase was difficult to work with one of the reasons he was expelled from the show was because of a comment he made regarding his understandable frustration with Pierce becoming increasingly [[{{Flanderization}} flanderised]] in Season 4 as a massive racist, "Next thing you'll have Pierce saying [[PoliticallyIncorrectVillain nigger]]".

* RealLifeWritesThePlot:
** Professor Duncan disappears between seasons 2 & 5 due to John Oliver's work on ''Series/TheDailyShow''.
** Pierce [[spoiler:being killed off early]] in Season 5 was to account for Chevy Chase's severance agreement stating he couldn't step foot on the ''Community'' set again.
** Troy left, because Donald Glover wanted to focus on his music career
** Shirley is leaving in Season Six, was so Yvette could take care of her ailing father.
** The roof collapse due to an excessive amount of frisbees lost there in the season 6 premiere was written to explain the pillars throughout the cafeteria, a by-product of the show moving to a different soundstage that happened to be in a basement.

* TroubledProduction: As the show continued on there came a lot of reports of behind-the-scenes trouble. Creator/ChevyChase was rather up front and vocal about his distaste for the show and had a rocky relationship with Dan Harmon. The show had a passionate fanbase but the ratings gradually diminished and the show was frequently over budget, which exacerbated NBC's relationship with the show. There were claims of episodes being filmed with unfinished or rewritten scripts and mismanaged production scheduling (one claim was that several sets were lit, staffed and staged to facilitate ''one joke'' featuring multiple {{Cutaway Gag}}s). Chase said this would lead to *sixteen to twenty hour work days*. In season four Harmon was fired and the show past on to staff writers for a half-season worth of episodes, Harmon returned was rehired in season five as the show was [[ChannelHop picked up to be a Yahoo exclusive]] and had managed a sixth season, but by then half the cast had left for various personal reasons.

* TroubledProduction: Partially due to the budget cuts instated by NBC, the showrunners were scrambling to meet deadlines for their shows, with Creator/ChevyChase saying in his Reddit AMA would lead to *sixteen to twenty hour work days*.

* AccidentallyAccurate: Evil!Jeff's comment that naming a sandwich the "[[PunnyName Troy-jan Horse]]" would just make people think horse meat was in it, from "[[Recap/CommunityS4E13AdvancedIntroductionToFinality Advanced Introduction To Finality]]". Between the episode being filmed in late 2012 & airing in May 2013, [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2013_meat_adulteration_scandal the story broke in Europe that horse meat had been included in foods supposedly containing beef]].
