New ‘Community’ Showrunners Meeting with Existing Writers

When ‘Community‘ was first announced to be renewed for an additional thirteen episodes, we were overjoyed.  When NBC announced that the episodes would air on Friday nights, we had mixed feelings.  Then came the announcement that Dan Harmon had been fired as show-runner, and two relative strangers had been brought in, and we were sad, but ultimately optimistic.  Now, the latest development in the ‘Community’ season 4 saga may be some small cause for hope…

In spite of the reverberations Dan Harmon’s firing has had on the rest of ‘Community,’ including the departures of executive producers Neil Goldman and Garrett Donovan, writer/producer Chris McKenna, actor/writer Dino Stamatopoulos, and frequent episode directors and executive producers Anthony and Joe Russo, today a small sign of consistency has emerged.

Vulture reports that ‘Community’s new showrunners David Guarascio and Moses Port have already begun to schedule meetings with several of the current ‘Community’ writers in order to discuss their futures with the series.  In spite of our already darkest timeline, we can take this as a good sign that Guarascio and Port aren’t planning to completely upend the series, but rather maintain its tone.

Granted, Sony has staff writer deals in place with many of the show’s writers, so it’s unclear if the studio would force any writers to follow their option in the wake of Harmon’s departure, but for now we’ve got at least one ray of hope that ‘Community’ won’t feel too terribly different when it picks up in the fall.

What say you?  Will you abandon ‘Community’ after Dan Harmon’s exit, or is the show worth sticking around another thirteen episodes?  Sound off in the comments below!
