Oliver’s Professor Ian Duncan will be back at Greendale Community College for at least six episodes of the 13-episode Season 5, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Last seen in Season 2, Oliver first guest-starred in the “Community” pilot as a near-felonious psychology professor who once employed the dubious legal services of Jeff Winger (Joel McHale).
This continues an excellent television year for Oliver. He stepped in for “Daily Show” host Jon Stewart during the summer months, a run generally considered to have worked for the British comedian.
There will be no shortage of impressive guest stars on “Community” in the coming season. Others set to appear include Jonathan Banks (“Breaking Bad”), Walton Goggins (“Justified”) and Rob Corddry (returning as Jeff’s law colleague).
Although just about to start in syndication on Comedy Central (the show debuts there on Friday, Sept. 20), there is no Season 5 premiere date for “Community” at this time.
