'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.
Our spirits over 'Community''s untimely fifth season cancellation were lifted by the notion that Hulu had entered early talks for a sixth season of the Greendale gang, but as was the case with similar fan-favorite 'Happy Endings' before it, no news is decidedly not good news. Now, series creator Dan Harmon has given an update on the Hulu negotiations that won't inspire many feelings of confidence.
We weren't quite so devastated by 'Community''s recent cancellation as with others in passing, given that we'd expect a number of outlets to jump at the chance to help fulfill the "Six Seasons and a Movie" mantra, but it seems we can officially cross Netflix off the list. What's more, series creator, showrunner and savior Dan Harmon has opened up with a more public statement on the cancellation of the eternally bubbled comedy.
Ah, to dream of a golden age, in which all TV fell under a single bracket, and viewers never needed to worry about when, and how to get their favorite shows. For a time, it had seemed like the advent of Hulu and other digital mediums would usher in that age, but now, more restrictions have begun cropping up on how viewers can use the site. Requiem, and terra pax, and so forth.
