Community Season 5? "I'd Love To See It Continue" Says NBC Boss
The creator’s been fired and one of its major stars has leftCommunityseason 5 could still be very much a goer according to NBC Entertainment chairman Robert Greenblatt.
There’s been a fair bit of news garnered from a presentation given by Greenblatt to critics yesterday (January 6, 2013) at the Television Critics Association’s winter press tour, and the latest is that cult favorite but weak ratings draw of a comedy could continue to a fifth run. "I'm always hopeful for a show to continue” Greenblatt told reporters, including The Hollywood Reporter. “We co-own it and I'd love nothing more than to see it continue."
Creator and showrunner Dan Harmon was fired last year with co-star Chevy Chase also upping sticks and leaving. The show has also suffered from consistently being moved around the schedule, having been switched from a planned return last October on Friday nights, to one starting on February 7. Talking up the future though, Greenblatt said: "I don't know that I'm the Community expert, but I think you're going to see relatively the same show that you have seen before. There is a little bit more heart built in to it, but we didn't fundamentally change it." He was also upbeat about the departure of Chase, commenting: "Actors come and go on a lot of shows and this is a big ensemble; I don't think that's in any way going to be a big negative about the future of the show. He's in everything but two episodes.”
