John Oliver to Teach Anthropology Class on Community

at .

It may not seem possible, but Community is about to get even funnier.

At this weekend's Comic-Con panel, series creator Dan Harmon said John Oliver will be promoted this fall. Look for The Daily Show correspondent to take over anthropology taught by Betty White on the Community premiere in September.

Said Harmon:

"He's one of the funniest guys I've ever worked with. I wanted to see what it might be like, just to see it, if he in fact was the so-called Chang and Chang was one of the students. Whether or not that makes Chang part of the study group, I won't address, but I wanted to see John Oliver in front of our ensemble, teaching some kind of class. The nice way to do it is to have him filling in for a suspended Betty White."

Community returns with new episodes on September 23.
