6 best ensemble casts from a comedy TV series

3 of 3

2. Community (2009-2015)

Life at Greendale Community College is on full display in the comedy sitcom Community. When an exiled lawyer named Jeff Winger (Joel McHale) unknowingly creates a Spanish study group in hopes of attracting the strong-minded Britta (Gillian Jacobs), what ensues is the formation of friendships and a family between seven strangers from different backgrounds and ages.

It’s a hilarious journey throughout the series as Jeff, Britta, sweet Annie (Alison Brie), caring Shirley (Yvette Nicole Brown), quirky Abed (Danny Pudi), jock Troy (Donald Glover), and a not-so-wise older gentleman named Pierce (Chevy Chase) navigate the different classes and events at Greendale together.

1. That ‘70s Show (1998-2006)

Boasting eight seasons, That ‘70s Show was filled with antics, growth, friendships, and romance for six high schoolers in 1970s Wisconsin. Led by the nerdy protagonist Eric Forman (Topher Grace), the cast of this show couldn’t be any more different.

The mixture of several quirky personalities resulted in a show with unique perspectives and of course many pranks. I mean, there was the wealthy/conceited Jackie (Mila Kunis), sophisticated Donna (Laura Prepon), carefree Hyde (Danny Masterson), dimwitted Kelso (Ashton Kutcher), and aspiring womanizer Fez (Wilmer Valderrama). And who can forget the stern Red Forman (Kurtwood Smith) rounding out one of the best ensemble casts?

With memorable moments like the circle, Kelso’s eye being injured all the time, and Red Forman’s tirades, the laughs don’t stop (I can’t stop laughing while writing this sentence).
