A long time ago, in a world before Yahoo Screen, 'Community''s inevitable end seemed that much more pronounced by news that Judd Apatow had plotted a TV return with Gillian Jacobs as his 'Love'-ly lead. Now, even with 'Community' due back for a 6th season in 2015, Netflix has officially granted a two-season order to Apatow and Jacobs' 'Love,' a new romantic dramedy.
Rescued from cancellation thought it may have been, 'Community''s future remains something of a question mark without Yahoo Screen setting any kind of official season 6 timetable. And while Comic-Con 2014 only had so many hints to offer on the Greendale Gang's new beginning, our first Yahoo teaser promises that the onetime-NBC series will be back better, stronger, and faster than ever.
Where a few short weeks ago we'd all but given up hope on 'Community' season 6, the Greendale Gang has officially been confirmed to return, not only for a new season on Yahoo Screen, but also to Comic-Con 2014! Find out what the cast and crew of 'Community' will bring to the stage in San Diego this year with yet another streets ahead panel!
'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!
We were already dismayed to learn that Hulu likely wouldn't exercise its option to resurrect 'Community,' though it seems the streaming service has its eye on at least one star, and an even bigger name. A new report says that Judd Apatow is plotting his next TV series, and currently eying Gillian Jacobs for a 'Love'-ly leading role in a major get for Hulu.
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.
HBO proved a bit cagey in confirming that 'True Detective' had any involvement from Jessica Chastain, but another critically-acclaimed HBO series isn't hesitating to scoop up a fan-favorite actress. Fresh off the 'Community' cancellation, 'Girls' season 4 has added Gillian Jacobs to Britta Lena Dunham's life in a mysterious recurring role.
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.
