Dan Harmon Is Watching 'Community' Season 4 This Weekend and Promises "Not to Be a Jerk About It"

Community creator Dan Harmon is in the process of negotiating a deal to return to the series as showrunner next season, and he told E! News that he's planning on getting caught up on the fourth season, which he hasn't seen yet, in a binge-watching session this Sunday. "I'm just going to sit by myself, pop some popcorn and watch it," Harmon says. "I'm not going to be a jerk about it. I know there were some great writers working on that show who bled with me for seasons one, two and three … the worst thing I can do is fart in their direction at all."

"At the same time, I'm going to look at this thing and I don't think it would be very Community of me to negate anything," he continues. "Season three was weird, season two was weird, season one was weird. They're all weird. So if season four was weird in a different way, season's five job is to reveal that all four of those weird things add up to some weird hip-hop dance that when you put it on a loop, you go, 'Oh, I get it!'"

Harmon mentioned that he's still in the process of closing his deal and that he got in trouble for leaking news of his return via Twitter. "It was official enough for me to be a jerk and leak all of this business," explains Harmon. "We're in the process of closing my deal. I'm getting yelled at for saying anything about it!" He added, "We're supposed to start writing it Monday, so if my deal doesn't close, a different kind of history is going to be made."

    Don't fart in their general direction

    Oh… oh, so they're yelling at you? About… using social media to say you're coming back when they haven't confirmed anything… Yelling at you… The same people who fired you without telling you? And you found out via social media? Those people? Yeah, they don't have much of a leg to stand on as far as i'm concerned.

    So much for not "being a dick about it." I don't care, the show hasn't been funny since season 2.
