Streets ahead? Streets behind? Just plain streets? Any loyal 'Community' fan knows that for as long as the series has aired on NBC, series star Chevy Chase has had a public distaste for its brand of humor, his character Pierce Hawthorne, and particularly former show-runner Dan Harmon. Chase himself has hinted multiple times that he might leave the series, and has now officially confirmed his exit. But with so much of the thirteen-episode season 4 shot, will we really miss him?
'Community' may continue to be in dire straights given that NBC still hasn't picked a return airdate for the 13-episode fourth season, but ousted creator Dan Harmon is still sitting pretty. In addition to several other projects in the works at both CBS and FOX, Adult Swim is the first to show its faith in the former showrunner by picking up Harmon's animated series 'Rick and Morty' to series. That said, how many episodes is the order for, and what story will it tell?
These days, we're still living in a 'Community'-less pit of despair, as just when we thought a new season was about to begin, NBC pulled the rug out from underneath us. The underrated critical darling's fourth eason may not be debuting this Friday, October 19 anymore, but that doesn't mean you have to wait until NBC decides the ultimate fate of the series! How would you like a Dean-alicious look at a new scene from 'Community' season 4 right now?
As distraught as we are that 'Community' won't be premiering its fourth season next Friday thanks to NBC's last-minute switch, the consensus around the internet is that 'Community' will ultimately have a better shot with a bigger marketing push and potentially even a better night than Friday. Still, even with all the commotion series show-runners Moses Port and David Guarascio conducted a round of interviews about the Greendale Gang's senior year, including exactly what involvement departed show-runner Dan Harmon could have.
As positive as we try to stay that we have 'Community' back for season 4 at all, regardless of a reduced 13-episode order and a move to Friday nights, there's one bit that's still relatively hard to swallow. Sure, Moses Port and David Guarascio will do a fine job in his stead, but Dan Harmon represented the heart and soul of 'Community' from its very inception. With the dust settled on his exit, what's he saying now about the infamous controversies, or the possibility of coming back?
Today, the talk all around the internet consists mostly of NBC criticism leveled at how ineptly they've covered the 2012 Olympics, but here's even more fuel for the fire. We'd previously heard that ousted 'Community' leader Dan Harmon was in talks to create a new FOX sitcom, and now things are looking even further streets ahead for the deposed show-runner. Sitcom titan CBS reportedly wants a piece of Harmon too, but what are they offering?
Though there was never really any hope of Dan Harmon being allowed to return to our beloved 'Community' it's streets ahead to know that he may just have landed on his feet. In spite of the 'Community' creator's unceremonious firing at the hands of Sony TV, sources say Harmon is close to a deal that would enable him to create a new comedy series at FOX! So, what might the developer come up with this time, and who could he take with him?
There goes the neighborhood. Just earlier today, we were reporting that 'Community' had a bright star on the horizon, now that it's appearance at Comic-Con 2012 would be accompanied by Dan Harmon-replacing show-runners Moses Port and David Guarascio, no doubt looking to quell fan anxiety of 'Community' season 4. As if on reflex, it seems the exiled Dan Harmon has taken to the soapbox once more...
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...
