Dan Harmon: “I Can’t Think About Writing a Movie Until I Miss ‘Community’”

community-season6Now that Community’s sixth season has wrapped up on Yahoo, the next question on fans’ minds is whether the show will return for another season, end on the season 6 finale, or fulfill its #SixSeasonsAndAMovie destiny. Speaking to Entertainment Weekly over the weekend, Dan Harmon revealed that Yahoo wanted to make the movie immediately after season 6, but there are a few obstacles in the way:

“I told Yahoo, ‘I can’t think about writing a movie until I miss Community.’ They wanted to turn around and do a movie immediately, and Yahoo can get it done. They’re like the NSA, they’re crazy … Yahoo was so supportive that I completely self-destructed in season 6. I mean, I had no bad guys left. Yahoo was like Daddy Warbucks just picking Annie up at the orphanage, except in my version, Annie just like starts saying, ‘Maybe the sun won’t come out tomorrow,’ and starts taking Ritalin in her office. I think the actors are kind of exploding outward — Ken is now Dr. Ken. I remember him when he was only just Dr. Ken, now he’s Dr. Ken. Danny Pudi did a pilot that I think got picked up. Gillian’s working with Apatow, Alison Brie’s doing movies, so the difficulty is in just, can you get all the actors in the same place again?”
