#SixSeasonsAndAMovie has been the rallying cry of Community fans since the show ended back in 2015, and we’ve been getting vague updates over the past few years. What’s great is, show creator Dan Harmon has finally given us some solid updates on the status of the movie and says it could only be a matter of time when it’s finally made.
In an interview with The Wrap, Harmon has confirmed that a story already exists for the Community film. He explains:
“There’s a story—who knows if we’ll end up sticking to it, but it was something we had to compile in order to take it out and court various venues. And now negotiations happen.”
As far as the release, Harmon didn’t give out anything specific, but he does say that, “…as far as the industry is concerned, this is a matter of when and not if, for sure.”
Though the series never ended up as huge as Rick and Morty, Community remains to be a cult favorite, and was said to have a lot of renewed interest ever since it premiered on Netflix. Though it does start out as a typical sitcom, the series is chockfull of ‘Harmon-isms’ that have become prevalent in his other work from ridiculous parody episodes to clip shows that were the early versions of Rick and Morty’s Interdimensional Cable episodes.
We don’t know what a movie could be about, but I’m hoping we get a lot of elements that made the original series great. Could it be a huge parody film about movies based on TV series? Is there going to be a clip show? Could the Russo Brothers come back to direct?
If you ask me, I’m just hoping they bring back all the original cast members like Donald Glover and Chevy Chase. Fans have been aching for a Troy and Abed reunion and it’s high time we got one.
No release date has been set for the Community movie.
