Yahoo Raises the Stakes for 'Community' in This Season 6 Teaser

Community 's sixth season won't be here until sometime after Christmas, but in the meantime Yahoo released the above delightfully retro teaser for the new season that certainly sets some lofty expectations for next year, even promising that it will be rebuilt, improved, and hold the title of TV's first bionic show ever.

Jim Rash Wants a 'Game of Thrones'-Themed 'Community' to Happen

"These are bad pitches and Dan should never take them, but I just thought there's gotta be something you can battle for — what's the throne between City College and Greendale?"

- Actor/writer Jim Rash toys with the idea of a Game of Thrones-themed Community episode in a new interview with TV Line, in which he also discusses the show's NBC cancellation and his part in the upcoming Adult Swim series Mike Tyson Mysteries.

'Community' Set to Return for 13-Episode Season on Yahoo Screen

While all might have seemed lost for a sixth season of Community since its cancellation in May, The Wrap reports that a surprise last minute deal has been made for the cult NBC hit to come back in the form of a 13-episode season on Yahoo Screen. "I am very pleased that Community will be returning for its predestined sixth season on Yahoo," Dan Harmon said in a statement. "I look forward to bringing our beloved NBC sitcom to a larger audience by moving it online. I vow to dominate our new competition. Rest easy, Big Bang Theory. Look out, Bang Bus!"

Gillian Jacobs to Play a Recurring Role on 'Girls' This Season

Community was canceled earlier this month, but star Gillian Jacobs has already lined up her next TV job. Jacobs will play a recurring role on the upcoming fourth season of HBO's Girls, TV Line reports. Her character is named Mimi-Rose Howard, and she makes her first appearance in the fifth episode (called "Mimi-Rose") of the 10-episode season, which is set to premiere in 2015. Jacobs is the second Community to star to appear on Girls following Donald Glover's two-episode stint on the show in season two, and she's the first Community star to line up a new gig following that show's demise.

Dan Harmon to Post-Cancellation 'Community' Fans: "Sit Back and Relax for This Chapter"

Community creator Dan Harmon took to Tumblr this morning to reach out to fans in the wake of NBC's cancellation of the show last week to both address rumors about the show possibly being shopped around to other networks and whether or not he wants fans to start another uproar for its resurrection. While Harmon is clearly bummed that Community was given the axe, he says his thoughts on the idea of shopping the show around are in the "eh column," but at the same time he's "not going to be the guy that recancels canceled Community." From the post:

I'm scared to tell you how little [...]

Watch Episodes of 'The Office,' 'Rick and Morty,' 'The Simpsons,' and More with the Jokes Removed

Recently a Redditor decided to edit episodes of Seinfeld, Friends, and The Big Bang Theory to include only plot information and no jokes, and the result was an interesting look at how all three shows approach story and punchlines. If those three shows weren't enough, the same Redditor has gone and edited episodes of Community, The Office, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Everybody Loves Raymond, The Simpsons, Family Guy, South Park, and Rick and Morty. Of all the shows highlighted in this series so far, The Office currently has the smallest plot with a clip that lasts just over a minute, while Adult Swim's Rick and Morty leads the pack with [...]

The New Season of 'Community' Won't Be on Yahoo Until After Christmas

At yesterday's Community Comic-Con panel, Dan Harmon and crew gave a few hints as to what we can expect from the show's in-the-works sixth season on Yahoo. Aside from telling the audience that the new episodes won't be available until "probably sometime after Christmas," Harmon also revealed that Community won't be binge-friendly and is slated to premiere a new episode each week instead of premiering the entire season at once.

Harmon also addressed a fan's question about the state of Donald Glover's character Troy, and he responded with this tease: "Troy's out there somewhere. He may be in peril. That's what movies are made of." [...]

It's Not Looking Good for a Sixth Season of 'Community'

While it was previously reported that Sony and Hulu were in talks to revive the cancelled Community for a sixth season on the streaming site, TV Line is now reporting that Hulu has given up on the negotiations. There's still a tiny glimmer of a chance that the show could be revived if Sony can find another suitor by next week, when all of the actors' contracts expire, but that seems pretty unlikely at this point.

But hey, they had a good run! Five seasons is three or four seasons more than one could have really expected a show so willfully weird to last on network TV. [...]

29 'Community' Jokes You May Have Missed

Last Friday, NBC canceled Community after five seasons and, unfortunately, it doesn't look like the cult hit sitcom will be brought back for more episodes on another network or streaming service. It is amazing, though, that Community did manage to stay on the air so long, having been on the verge of cancellation every year, and fans can take comfort in the fact that they at least did get five seasons (four of them with creator Dan Harmon) and 97 episodes (86 with Harmon) of the show.

Like Arrested Development before it, Community stands apart from other network sitcoms because its writers delight in packing the show with in-jokes [...]

NBC Has Canceled 'Community'

It looks like Community won't be getting its six seasons and a movie. After five seasons, NBC canceled the sitcom today, TV Line reports. Community has been on the verge of cancelation each season of its run, with the show's low ratings always being the reason. Creator Dan Hamon returned to the show this season after having been let go the season prior. Cast members Donald Glover and Chevy Chase both departed within the last year.

Community's fate has been up in the air for the last few months. With a sixth season looking like a possibility back in March, it looked like the show had a shot [...]

The Season 5 'Community' Blooper Reel Has Sexy Cats, Sexy Lions, and Plenty of Dancing

The wait until the sixth season of Community will last until at least after Christmas, but in the meantime you can check out this six-minute video of bloopers from the show's final season on NBC, which features references to both a sexy cat and a sexy lion, tons of F-bombs, and a heartwarming dance montage.

Sony Exec Assures That the 'Community' Movie Is Definitely Happening

The good news isn't yet over for Community fans. Now that the show's sixth season has been secured thanks to Yahoo, THR spoke with Sony Pictures Television exec Zach Van Amburg about the Hulu and Yahoo talks, Dan Harmon's role in the process ("front and center"), and most importantly, the show's future following the upcoming season. Here's what Van Amburg had to say when pressed about a possible seventh season:

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 [...]

Hulu May Order a Sixth Season of 'Community'

The dream of six seasons and a movie may not be dead after all: Deadline is reporting that Hulu is in talks with Sony to produce a sixth season of the recently canceled Community. Despite Dan Harmon initially being lukewarm on the idea of continuing the show somewhere else once NBC gave it the axe, he's apparently on board if Hulu does end up ordering the show.

Talks are very early, so this could easily end up not happening, but both sides are open to the discussion, so we'll see. And if it does happen, could Donald Glover potentially come back as well? Keep [...]

'Community' Writer Andy Bobrow Reflects on Working with Dan Harmon

"Step five is delete. Keep the two percent that isn't shit and delete the ninety-eight percent that's shit. Rewrite it. Within your re-write, there will be two more percent that isn't shit. Then just keep tossing the shit and replacing it until the ratio is tolerable."

- Television writer Andy Bobrow in a new essay "How Writing for the TV Show Community Cured Me," in which he talks about landing a writing job on Community and how much he's learned from Dan Harmon's rewrites. The essay also includes two drafts of season 2 episode "Mixology Certification" to show just how much rewriting went into Community episodes.
