Chevy Chase is leaving “Community.”
The actor’s exit is effective immediately, although much of the critically acclaimed NBC sitcom’s upcoming fourth season has been filmed already.
It’s not clear how the show will address the departure of Chase’s character Pierce Hawthorne.
NBC and the producers of “Community” have not yet commented on Chase’s leaving, although his exit is being described in reports as the result of “mutual agreement.”
The actor’s three years on the show were marked by tumult and tension, including well-publicized clashes with since-departed series creator Dan Harmon.
The sitcom’s fourth season is slated to begin in February.
