The screenplay for Bubbles topped the 2015 Black List, but unlike many of the other scripts to land on the list over the years, we won’t have to wait very long to see this one make it to the big screen. Based on Michael Jackson’s pet chimpanzee (yes, really), Bubbles is a pretty weird story, to say the least, and one that requires an equally creative team to adapt it. Enter former Community showrunner and creator Dan Harmon, who is producing a stop-motion animated film based on Bubbles.

The dissolution of Yahoo’s “Screen” streaming service pretty-well confirmed that hope for Community Season 7 was lost (granted, costing Yahoo $42 million before that was a clue), but if anything about the erstwhile NBC comedy remains constant, it’s hope for the future. Official DVD art for the March release has arrived, teasing that Season 6 may not be the last after all.
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.
Once upon a time during its first run, Rick and Morty had fans of the delightfully-demented Dan Harmon cartoon anxious of a second season renewal. Only partway through its second outing however, Adult Swim has issued a confidence-boosting Season 3 pickup to Rick and Morty.
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.
We’ve seen Rick and Morty kill The Simpsons, but at last Adult Swim’s demented pair will crash into their own season premiere on July 26. Why wait however, when all the alien-murdering, time-splitting, child-endangering antics are on full display by the Rick and Morty Season 2 trailer right now?
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?
The Simpsons have some dark days ahead if Harry Shearer follows through on plans to quit, though none so dark as the opening of Sunday’s Season 26 finale. Adult Swim’s Rick and Morty drop by the latest couch gag to gruesomely get everyone killed, because what else would you expect from Rick and Morty?
