Chevy Chase

I'm Leaving 'Community'

... But I Wasn't Fired!

Chevy Chase's "Community" college days are OVER ... the actor has struck a deal to leave the NBC sitcom ... effective immediately.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Chase didn't quit ... nor was he fired ... but it was a "mutual decision" between the actor and producers. 

FYI -- producers have already shot the majority of the upcoming season ... and Chase will remain in those episodes. It's unclear if Chase's exit will be explained on the show ... or if it will simply go on as if Pierce Hawthorne never existed.

The move comes as no surprise -- Chase has been very critical of the show ... and famously left a nasty voicemail for creator Dan Harmon ... basically telling him that he sucks.

Everyone knows Chevy is a pain, but I've actually also heard Dan Harmon is a pretty self important tool. Regardless of who is to blame, this show went from fair to stupid in about 1 and a half seasons.

I have tried, tried, tried, to enjoy this series,....but not having it anymore,....the end was the paint ball incident,....oh my gawd ! Are you that f**king desperate? To have soooo many brilliant performers,...what the hell do you expect them to worth with? Being at college, a community college at that, has sooo many possibilities,......Chevy,....this IS NOT 'Family Vacations' or anything like that,.....your writers DO NOT and ARE NOT of that caliber,....so brother Chevy PLEASE stop whining and cryin' like a girl,....man up, walk off,....the other actors will have more camera time,.... I know a LOT of actors would give up everything to even attempt a chance at a comedy series,.......please, please, please,....stop cryin'......

GOOD RIDDANCE! The empty chair Clint Eastwood berated on the GOP stage had much more personality than Chevy Chase EVER had. And the chair was much better looking too!
