'Community' and its creator Dan Harmon blew our minds once more with the announcement that the Greendale Gang had survived cancellation yet again to produce a sixth season with Yahoo Screen, but is class really back in session? Find out everything we know about 'Community''s six seasons and a movie with our guide to Greendale's major Yahoo deal!
Merciful Zeus, 'Community' may yet reach its "Six Seasons and a Movie" mantra after all. After NBC initially canceled the perpetually bubbled cult comedy, and even after Hulu reluctantly passed on an opportunity to save the series, Yahoo Screen stepped in at the last moment to reunite the Greendale Gang for 'Community' season 6. Streets ahead, y'all!
The pain of 'Community''s recent cancellation continually lingers, but who couldn't use something to make it hurt even more? Amid the cult and critical favorite's many genre episodes, we've learned that the NBC comedy had long attempted to bring to light a 'Back to the Future'-themed concept episode at the insistence of departed cast member Donald Glover, though a notable snag prevented the episode from moving forward.
Well, this feels familiar. 'Community' astonishingly gravitated closer and closer to its "Six Seasons and a Movie" mantra, particularity when season 5 saw acclaimed showrunner Dan Harmon return to the fold, but NBC has at long last called it quits. 'Community' has officially been canceled, according to the network, but will the Greendale Gang go on?
Logical as it might seem for NBC to bite the bullet on one more shortened season of 'Community' to reach its "six seasons and a movie" mantra, fans of Dan Harmon's eternally-bubbling series may be in for a rude awakening. Writer-producer Chris McKenna has cryptically tweeted that 'Community' is "dead," preparing fans for the notion that NBC may not include the series among its ongoing renewals.
UPDATE: NBC has officially announced that 'Community' has indeed been canceled.
'Community' season 5 has soldiered on admirably in the wake of both Donald Glover and Chevy Chase's departures, though the chances of a sixth season (and, of course, the movie) remain somewhat murky. We might have one bit of good news, though, as a new rumor suggests Glover might make a quick return to the hallowed halls of Greendale, at least for the finale!
Following the universal acclaim of last week's "Cooperative Polygraphy," NBC stalwart 'Community' will again brace for a big episode as Donald Glover says his goodbyes in "Geothermal Escapism." The first photos of the post-apocalyptic concept episode has arrived, along with a first look at 'Castle' star Nathan Fillion as a mysterious janitor in the weeks to come!
Following last week's epic "Beyond the Darkest Timeline" trailer for 'Community' season 5, about the only way NBC has left to promote the Greendale gang's return lies in two new clips from the January 2 premiere itself! Find out what brings Jeff and the study group back to Greendale's hallowed halls, as well as when we'll say goodbye to Donald Glover!
Just the other day, we caught our first look at 'Community' season 5 in fresh new photos of Jeff and season-long guest star Jonathan Banks, but that wasn't the only Greendale goodness NBC had to offer. Before we start celebrating the January 2 premiere, check out the full set of photos from 'Community''s season 5 premiere, featuring the return of guest star Rob Corddry!
