The show stars Joel McHale (Jeff Winger), Danny Pudi (Abed Nadir), Donald Glover (Troy Barnes), Chevy Chase (Pierce Hawthorne), Gillian Jacobs (Britta Perry), Alison Brie (Annie Edison), Ken Jeong (Ben Chang), and Yvette Nicole Brown (Shirley Bennett).

The group, which is made up of diverse and quirky individuals, becomes a support system for each other as they navigate their personal and academic challenges.

The show’s main character is Jeff Winger, a lawyer who is disbarred and forced to attend community college. He initially forms the study group in order to impress a woman, Britta Perry, but over time, the group becomes genuine friends and forms a tight-knit community.

Throughout the series, the characters face a variety of challenges, both in and out of the classroom. They also often find themselves in comical and absurd situations, often referencing pop culture.
