‘The Walking Dead’ season 3: Now with a touch of NBC’s ‘Community’

There are some pairings in this world that we could have never anticipated, and at this very moment, we are feeling pretty sure that the combination of “The Walking Dead” and “Community” is one of them.

So what is happening here? In a new post on her Twitter account, Yvette Nicole Brown (otherwise known as Shirley Bennett) announced this week that she is going to be the guest on the next episode of AMC’s “Talking Dead,” which is of course their “Walking Dead” aftershow that airs at 11:00 p.m. Eastern time hosted by Chris Hardwick. Brown is well-known to be a fan of all sorts of TV beyond just her own show, and when it comes to the world that she is from as a comedic actor, she should be able to give a fun sort of insight to what is going on in the worlds of the prison and Woodbury.

Of course, we wonder if somewhere in here a question will come up about the breaking “Community” news that just hit the internet earlier this week, as Chevy Chase has been let go from the series despite there only being a couple of season 4 episodes left to shoot. Chase has long been a thorn in producers’ side on the show, and creator Dan Harmon was ultimately fired from his post at the same time that he was feuding very publicly with the actor.

Ironically, this is where Brown and “The Walking Dead” may have some common ground: both have lost their initial showrunner during their run. (Glen Mazzara replaced Frank Darabont during production on season 2.)

Are you now more excited to catch “Talking Dead” this weekend than you were previously?
