What About the Movie, or Season 7?
Considering the hell ‘Community’ has slogged through to fulfill its “six seasons and a movie” mantra, it objectively seems all-but-assured the movie will happen in at least some capacity, even if the sixth season proved a poor investment for Yahoo, and it took 20 years to film.
Thankfully, Amburg seems committed to the notion of a movie, saying “I'd be lying if I told you that we have not had some very early and preliminary conversations that are very exciting about what a potential movie could be and who might direct it.” Whether the movie streams on Yahoo or nets a theatrical release, neither side knows for sure just yet.
In fact, Yahoo chief marketing officer Kathy Savitt teased that we might see a life for ‘Community’ past six seasons and a movie, asking “how could we enable not just the existing audience to find it, but to grow that audience so that the show is able to flourish and prosper not just in season six but well beyond?” Adds Amburg:
I don't know, let's see how our movie does! Isn't that our plan? There's no way we're not making the movie now! I think once we make the movie, let's look up and decide how much more Community the world wants. We promised six seasons and a movie, how much more do you want?!
