When it was down to the last few hours, many people had given up on the idea that “Community” would be revived. But one of the stars of the series, Joel McHale says he never gave up.
“I had no doubt we would be back. Much like a Japanese general in World War II, the only option was victory or suicide. As I’ve said a lot, I love the show. I know most of you watch on tiny little screens and now we’re on one. F— you network television!”
Other stars of the series seemed to love the show just as dearly as McHale did. Gillian Jacobs revealed that she cried when she found out it was canceled originally.
“I definitely shed a tear when we were canceled. I cried in my car. I didn’t want to let go of the show, because I think there are a few times in your life where you get to work on something as groundbreaking … and heartbreaking as this show.”
Thanks to Yahoo! Screen, SixSeasonsandaMovie is on its way to becoming a reality. Dan Harmon and Chris McKenna announced that the 6th season will release in the traditional format with each of the 13 episodes releasing on a weekly basis. They haven’t revealed when we can expect the new season to premiere.
