“October 19th” has finally arrived. After the ouster of creator Dan Harmon, the hiring of new showrunners, a 16-week delay, a change in scheduling from Friday back to home on Thursday, and news of a star’s departure, Community returns for its fourth (and possibly-but-also-maybe-not-final) season tonight at 8 p.m. on NBC. As you can imagine, the new guys in charge, executive producers Moses Port and David Guarascio (Aliens in America, Just Shoot Me), are a wee bit antsy to finally kick off the year after this extended hiatus. “Given all the change with the show, meaning us coming aboard, it would’ve been nice to be airing episodes while we’re making them, to cross that threshold of, ‘Hey, world, here it is, take it or leave it, whatever you think!’” says Guarascio. “There is so much anxiety about how people will react to it, because we’re all so invested in getting everyone to embrace the show. On the other hand, we feel like we’re on a night we’d much rather be on….The fact that we’re back on Thursday has also helped increase the anticipation a little bit. It’s why dessert comes at the end of the meal, it’s the anticipation that helps make it so satisfying.” READ FULL STORY

This Sunday, Girls returns to HBO for its second season—with a bit of a warning. “If you loved what we were doing last season, then we’re speaking right to you,” the show’s co-creator and star Lena Dunham told EW in our Winter TV Preview issue. “If you hated it, then I’m afraid things aren’t going to change.”
You’ll have to wait to see how you feel about the cocaine episode, and the episode where Hannah has a pretty awkward discussion about race. But in the meantime, we’ve been chatting with Dunham and Girls co-creator Jenni Konner about what to expect this season. Below, we’ve excerpted sections of two separate conversations with each show runner. They answer our burning questions about the new episodes.
Judging by the trailer, it looks like Hannah gets together with a lot of guys this season. How has the way she views her love life changed?
Lena Dunham: Hannah is desperate for experiences to write about, done with Adam and confident that she understands the mechanics of sex. (Spoiler alert: she doesn’t.) This leads to embracing unwise hookups and ruining wiser ones.
Jenni Konner: Let’s be honest, her love life is never that hot, but it will be very busy.
