Joel McHale Never Doubted Revival Chances of “Community”

Community

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.

McHale said,

“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.

NBC Makes the WORST Decision and Cancels “Community”

Despite proclamations by Danny Pudi that The Greendale Gang would “be back next year and, if not, it’s because an asteroid has destroyed all of human civilization. And that’s canon,” NBC has pissed off the collective internet and officially cancelled “Community.”

We are definitely in the darkest timeline.

It seems the show and their devoted fan base couldn’t make six season and movies happen. EW is currently reporting that Sony will indeed try to find a future for “Community,” either on cable or a streaming service. As EW notes, the show airs in syndication on Comedy Central, while Hulu owns the digital rights, making those two obvious potential outlets.

It is also possible that Netflix could  continue the season like it has done for previously cancelled shows such as “Arrested Development” and “The Killing.”

“Community” starred Joel McHale, Yvette Nicole Brown, Gillian Jacobs, Alison Brie, Danny Pudi, John Oliver, Jim Rash, Jonathan Banks and Ken Jeong.
