We’ve been through this drill before; one comment or another from cast and crew placing the future of Community in jeopardy, at least until another urges not to lose hope. That said, creator Dan Harmon now calls chances “bleak” after the comedy’s main Yahoo supporter left the company for another job.
We’ve momentarily let go of concerns that Community won’t ever get the chance at its long-awaited movie, but that doesn’t mean Yahoo lacks for new ways to enjoy the Greendale Gang. Season 6 is new once more, as Yahoo re-releases episodes with creator Dan Harmon’s commentary.
Few had earnestly thought Yahoo might order a seventh season of Community, what with cast contracts expiring and limited reception, to the point series lead Joel McHale even outright denied the possibility. Now, not only has McHale walked back his comments, but Yahoo is actively pushing for a movie, among other mixed outlooks.
The very mantra of #SixSeasonsAndAMovie seemingly guaranteed that Community’s recent Yahoo season would mark the last of the Greendale Gang’s episodic adventures, but one never really knows with Community. Still, the further away from the sixth season finale we get, star Joel McHale seems increasingly certain Community as a series has ended.
All of the X-Files casting to date has followed the return of old school stars like Mitch Pileggi and William B. Davis, but the latest acquisition for FOX’s 2016 revival comes from a different school altogether. Fresh off the (series?) finale of Community, Joel McHale will trade in Greendale for little green men.
That old familiar standby of Community signing off has again arrived, perhaps a bit more under the radar than in previous years, but nonetheless completing the first half of its #SixSeasonsandaMovie pledge. Meta as ever, “Emotional Consequences of Broadcast Television” said a heartfelt goodbye to Season 6 as it envisioned a potential Season 7, but would fans (or Dan Harmon) even want it?
Welcome back to another installment of the Monday Morning Critic. In this space each week, I’ll be looking at the week that was in addition to the week ahead in television. The format will shift each week, as the world of TV will dictate the form and content of each piece. In this week’s installment: shows that are in danger of falling into my DVR abyss.
The Age of Ultron will surely blow our minds by its next trailer, but Community has officially stolen The Avengers’ spotlight for its first Season 6 trailer. Marvel at the “Age of Yahoo” in our first full look at the Greendale Gang’s sixth season, chock full of all your favorite cameos and craziness!
We’re still hard pressed to believe Community made it to Season 6 after all, with all-new episodes premiering on Yahoo Screen March 17, but short of an inevitable movie, the Greendale gang is officially back. Check out Community’s Season 6 poster for the big move, along with photos of our new and returning cast members!
We’re still pinching ourselves at the notion that ‘Community’ survived to its sixth season after all, but Yahoo Screen will have much more than a pinch this March. The Greendale gang has officially set a March return for the ostensibly final season of ‘Community’ (assuming #SixSeasonsAndAMovie), also revealing their episode schedule.
