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." [...]
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 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 [...]
For years now, Community fans and the show's cast and crew have been using the phrase "six seasons and a movie" as a half-joking mantra about the show's future, but now, it looks like the show might actually be getting a sixth season and a movie.
TV Guide reports that plans for the movie are in the early stages and that Justin Lin is being considered to direct. Lin directed the last four Fast and the Furious movies and three episodes of Community, including the show's famed paintball episode. TV Guide adds that "NBC and Sony insiders say they're optimistic" and that if NBC passes on another season, [...]
Community creator Dan Harmon did an interview with Rolling Stone out today, and in it, he mentioned that he and Arrested Development creator Mitch Hurwitz are working on a mysterious new project together.
Here's what Harmon said, although he deliberately didn't give a lot of details:
I've begged him to come to the writers' room on Community, but he has wisely declined. I don't think he'd be able to stand being on someone else's thing. He and I have talked about doing a project together, so that every time I see him, I'm like, "We weren't just drunk, we're really gonna do that?" And he's like, "Yeah." … I don't [...]
