Anyone familiar with Dan Harmon’s Community tenure will likely remember behind-the-scenes conflict that culminated in his termination, and eventual return. Now, amid the many airings of grievance around Hollywood, fan-favorite writer Megan Ganz called Harmon out for his abrasive – even intimidating – behavior in the writers room.
The prospect of a Community movie gets further and further each year, especially as its principal cast moves to newer, high-profile projects. Creator Dan Harmon is still actively pursuing a Greendale reunion, however, and may even recruit Fast and Furious director Justin Lin to do it.
Community seems to have become a series we remember more by GIFs and breakout stars, especially as Donald Glover adds so many other iconic roles to his profile. Community itself outlasted him by a season and a half, but as creator Dan Harmon now admits, Glover’s exit was “the death of the show.”
Guest stars are something of an afterthought when it comes to the sci-fi madness of Rick and Morty, but Season 3 won’t be without familiar voices. Not only will co-creator Dan Harmon stage another Community homage of sorts, but Susan freaking Sarandon will also lend her voice.
In a world void of Community movie updates, ABC’s Dr. Ken has steadily drawn headlines with Ken Jeong inviting former Greendale students and teachers for mini-reunions. That prospect will get even weirder with series creator Dan Harmon and star Alison Brie, as the already-meta Community gets its own meta-return.
Long before Yahoo Screen swooped in for a sixth season of Community, prevailing thought had Hulu continuing the Greendale Gang’s adventures fulltime, given their exclusive rights to the first five seasons. That time obviously passed, but a new deal finally puts all six seasons available to stream on Hulu. Hashtag #OneDayTheMovieToo?
It was hard to get a read on Donald Glover in his Community exit, as the increasingly-esoteric star seemed to lean more toward his Childish Gambino career at the time. Now, as Glover heads back to TV for FX’s Atlanta, the erstwhile Troy Barnes says it’s good that his Community time came to an end, just like Donald Trump will. Look, it got dark.
Near the entire cast of Community has found steady gigs since the ages-ago “cancellation” off Yahoo Screen, but as the old mantra demands, we still need “a movie” to follow “six seasons and.” Creator Dan Harmon tells Larry King he’s confident it’ll happen one day, but hasn’t started a script, for fear of two distinctly saddening scenarios.
