So news has broken that Donald Glover and his Troy Barnes character will be going part time for the forthcoming fifth season of NBC comedy series Community . Reports are stating that this is so Glover can focus more on his music career as Childish Gambino, his hip hop alter ego. Glover will appear in only 5 of the coming 13 episodes of season 5, less than half.

Personally, I don't know how I feel about this. While I am a huge fan of Community  and Troy Barnes is one of my favorite characters on the show, I also follow Childish Gambino and get many an awesome workout in to his jams. On the upside, Dan Harmon is back for season 5 after being so unceremoniously let go after three fantastic seasons. That empty space was felt throughout most of season four, and with Chevy Chase no longer being a member of the cast, makes me wonder just how much further can this show go.

Either way, I'll be looking forward to this fifth season and hopefully a few more hot tracks from Childish Gambino.  Just hope we can get a few more "Troy and Abed in the Mooooorning" segments.
