Why Donald Glover Should Return To 'Community'


Donald Glover Dan Harmon

'Community' is saved, but its resurrection isn't complete just yet. According to showrunner Dan Harmon, he's not content with just getting his show back - he wants Donald Glover back in the cast, too.

Community CastThe new season of 'Community' will premiere this fall

The cult sitcom was picked up for a new season last month by streaming service Yahoo Screen after NBC canned it, and it was a move that was widely praised. 'Community's upcoming sixth season will debut for everyone's streaming pleasure later this fall. Though all of the cast will return, Glover still won't. The 30 year old rapper/actor left the show last year and only appeared in five episodes last season before bidding farewell for good. But, with 'Community's new lease on life, Harmon is hoping things will change.

Why Yahoo Screen Is Good For 'Community'

‘Community’ fans: rejoice! Put down your pitchforks and send all of your scathing blog posts to the drafts section, because the show is officially coming back for a sixth season. In what was widely considered a surprise across the industry, the show was picked up by Yahoo Screen last week after talks fell apart with the streaming service Hulu. "I am very pleased that Community will be returning for its predestined sixth season on Yahoo," showrunner 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, BangBus!"

Harmon’s plans to de-throne BangBus may be a little farfetched, but the move from television to Internet for Community will undoubtedly work in the show’s favor. Over the years, it constantly struggled to keep up ratings, but there was always a strong Internet and social media presence with its fanbase that supported ‘Community’ through thick and thin. When the show was eventually canceled by their network NBC in early May, it looked like it was going to be the end of its five year run – however, it always had a chance to strive online.

Yahoo!’s planned foray into long form digital content was met with some confusion when the appointed executive producers of the new projects Paul Feig (Bridesmaids) and Mike Tollin (Smallville) made the announcement at Digital Content NewFronts back in April.

Dan Harmon Joel McHale

Don’t count ‘Community’ out just yet. The former cult television show had been facing cancellation for years, and NBC finally gave it the axe in early May after ratings once again failed to live up to expectations. However, the show might just get another chance: the streaming website Hulu is in talks with Sony Pictures Television to bring ‘Community’ back for a sixth season.

“We've been on the receiving end of some phone calls, but we really need to get together with the Community team and have real conversations and figure out the future. If there's any show that should have a future or could have a future, it really feels like Community is the one,” Sony Pictures Television co-president Jamie Erlicht told The Hollywood Reporter.

Dan Harmon

We’re picturing a superhero clad in green and black spandex, flying down to silence a hoard of angry Community fans protesting out NBC’s headquarters with news that Hulu are saving their beloved show. Hulu are thinking of resurrecting Community, in case you didn’t get that from that.

CommunityIs 'Community' Coming Back?

There was uproar when NBC announced it was cancelling Dan Harmon’s hugely popular comedy, which somehow can’t translate that cult following into the kind of viewing figures NBC want. But Hulu are – according to people like The Hollywood Reporter – in talks with Sony Pictures Entertainment with a view to bringing it back for a sixth season on the streaming service.

'Community' Creator Dan Harmon Lists Some Shows To Fill The Void


Dan Harmon Chevy Chase

Dan Harmon took to Tumblr to address some distressed Tweets and give a bit of an insight into the cancellation of ‘Community’, which has been received by its fans like the news of a dead kitten. Harmon was also quick to point out some shows that could help fill the void in the post: "Sit back and treat yourself to some New Girl and Parks and Mindy and Brooklyn 99 and Eagleheart and Portlandia and have you seen Matt Berry's Toast of London? It's awesome," he said.

But the post is probably most notable for Harmon’s comments on the future of the show. He has been criticised for blocking ‘Community’ moving onto another network to work alongside with Sony, the primary broadcasters of the show. But he insist he doesn’t have the kind of power to sway that decision.

'Community' hasn’t even been granted a 6th season yet, but that didn’t stop the show’s creator Dan Harmon was talking about the possibility of getting renewed at Wednesday’s Paleyfest in LA’s Dolby Theatre. He even talked about the possibility of a movie.

With the show reaching the end of season 5, Gillian Jacobs blurted out “it’s happening,” to yells from the crowd. “I think we know there’s going to be a sixth season since you guys will probably show up with pitchforks and torches,” followed Joel McHale, referencing the show’s notoriously passionate fan base.

NBC Expects 'Parks & Recreation' Renewal, With Other Shows Still In Limbo


NBC Amy Poehler Michael J Fox Jonathan Rhys Meyers Dan Harmon

NBC have teased at what shows they are due to renew and which they are likely to drop from their schedules at the TCA press tour this weekend. Given how vague the network executives were at the press meeting, we can't exactly confirm anything, but what we can say is that Parks & Recreation will more than likely be getting a seventh season, everything else might not be so lucky.

“I’m going out on a limb: Parks and Recreation is going to have a 7th season,” was the word of the NBC's entertainment chairman Robert Greenblatt at the TCA event, giving the closest thing to a solid confirmation regarding the future of a NBC show. The only other shows that held a similar kind of certainty were two popular comedies: Parenthood and Community.

Trailer For 'Community' Season Five Hits The Web [Video]

Community will at last be back on our screens in the new year and to celebrate the long-awaited return of the Greendale Seven (whose numbers have admittedly declined since the start of the show) an all-new trailer has been released by NBC. Marking the return of series creator Dan Harmon to the helm, the new trailer is a cinematic feast, coming across more as a movie trailer than a promo for a television series.

It seems as though Joel McHale's Jeff Winger has finally been able to reignite his law career after spending four years at the community college, only for it all to come crashing down as soon as he could get things moving again. The pop culture references are right here just as you would expect, with Abed (Danny Pudi) comparing Winger's return to Greendale with season nine of Scrubs, posing, "It could be like Scrubs season nine - a revamp, a do-over."

Donald Glover Is Afraid - Actor, Writer, Rapper Leaves Enigmatic Instagram Pics

Everyone seems to be in agreement about Donald Glover: he’s an immensely talented man, who can pretty much do anything he puts his mind to. Hopefully, he’s just put his mind to freaking out his core fan group, because he’s certainly achieved that with his set of eerie Instagram photos.

The pics uploaded to the photo-sharing social networking site depict a load of handwritten notes with some pretty serious stuff written on them. No need to call the police just yet, but we’d keep the phone somewhere nearby. "I'm afraid my parents won't live long enough to see my kids," said one note.

'Community' Showrunner Dan Harmon Dabbles In Animation With 'Rick and Monty'


Dan Harmon

Dan Harmon has a new animated show! This is exciting! The new endeavor is called Rick and Monty and airs on Adult Swim. Those familiar with Harmon’s work are naturally expecting this to be nothing short of a new Futurama. Side note: if you’re not familiar with Community at least, what are you doing with your life?

Rick and Monty will be Harmon’s first foray into the world of animation and tells the story of a somewhat dysfunctional family – Rick is the ageing eccentric inventor, while Monty is his somewhat dull grandson. Monty often gets involved in Rick’s inventor-type activities (go watch the show) and hilarity ensues.

You Know What Community Needs? A Community - Donald Glover Cuts Down Season 5 Appearances


Donald Glover Dan Harmon

The ever-troubled show Community has been dealt another blow as it was revealed that Donald Glover – a real fans’ favorite – is to appear in only 5 out of the scheduled 13 episodes of season 5. That’s right, you’ll be seeing less of Troy Barnes, but on the upside, you Glover fans will be seeing more of Childish Gambino – the multi-talented actor/musician’s rap alter ego.

Donald Glover Aka Childish GambinoHere's Donald Glover being Childish Gambino

Instead of just leaving the show, which isn’t a rare occurrence for Community – troubled as it is – no: Glover and Sony Pictures Entertainment have worked out a way for him to see out season 5 by appearing in 5 episodes. This will allow Sony to save some cash, which is never a bad things in these times of austerity, and allow Glover to focus on his surprisingly fragrant music career, which includes the track Freaks and Geeks – click on that with caution, you under-18s, you.
