"In some ways what we setup for Season 4 is embracing change," Pudi said. "And I think specifically within the world of Abed you see that right away in the premiere in Season 4 is going to his happy place, especially every time anyone mentions that it’s our senior year, which is scary. And I think with Abed we’ve explored change a few different times already. In the 'My Dinner with Andre' episode, it ends with Abed saying that changing really isn’t his jam, you know. He’s more of a fast-blinking stoic type. And I think the thing about senior year at Greendale is that whether or not we change much as individuals our circumstances change and our environments change. So I think that is something that we have to at least address."
Brie said she's excited about several upcoming episodes, including a Hitchcockian Christmas episode and a "Freaky Friday"-style episode written by co-star Jim Rash (AKA Dean Pelton).
"This is what I’ll say about change, 'Hang in there, fans,'" Brie said. "Because I think the [season] finale is such a special treat and it’s written by [Megan Ganz] and it’s one of my favorite episodes this season and I think that it has a lot of elements in it that just are - it’s really just made for the fans."
