'Community' Just Might Get to Six Seasons and a Movie (Yes Really)

Community has always been on the bubble. The show does well in its demographic, but has never had high ratings. But after five seasons, the show will have amassed 98 episodes -- two shy of the most syndication-friendly number -- while much of NBC's schedule hasn't worked out so hot. So now it seems like it will get to six seasons. The new twist is that there could...

It's almost here. It's one of those things that seemed impossible since Season one, but we're now actually about to start the fifth season of Community. And it looks like NBC is promoting it, trying to get people excited about what could be the final thirteen episodes of the series. Or perhaps it will get to a sixth season and a movie (of the week). Regardless, this...

'Community' Season Five Trailer: Hey Look, Dan Harmon Made It Funny Again

Community - Study Group
After NBC ousted creator and showrunner Dan Harmon from Community prior to its fourth season, many fans were concerned that the hilarious and oddball college-set sitcom would flounder and flail without its character.  And while it didn’t exactly fail (I’m pretty sure I nearly audibly chuckled once or twice during the season, and the show didn’t get cancelled),...

It's been hard to say goodbye to Breaking Bad, but it seems that Community wants to make it easier. Not only is Jonathan Banks -- who played Mike Ehrmantraut -- joining Community's fifth season, but so is BB showrunner Vince Gilligan in an acting role.

One of the most refreshing things about Community creator Dan Harmon (in addition to the fact that, well, he created Community) is the fact that he seems clinically and pathologically unable to place a governor or interlocutor between his brain and mouth.  Indeed, this is the man who once compared viewing season four of Community (the polarizing,...

'Community' Lands 'Breaking Bad' star Jonathan Banks for Season 5

Jonathan Banks/Community
We're definitely excited about Dan Harmon's return to Community, but with the absence of Chevy Chase, and with Donald Glover only appearing in five episodes, it feels like he's returning to a leaky ship. Well, if you want a good reason to tune in for season five, here's one. Mike Ehrmantraut Jonathan Banks has joined the cast for eleven episodes.

Just when you thought you could get excited about the fifth season of Community—despite Chevy Chase’s awkward exit as a cast member, Community creator and former showrunner Dan Harmon announced his return after being fired before the misguided fourth season—more bad news has emerged from the once-great TV comedy.  What’s the damage...

'Community' May Bring Back Dan Harmon

Published by

Dan Harmon, Chevy Chase
When Community was renewed for a fourth season it seemed like a miracle, but then NBC/the powers that be made it hurt: the show got to continue but without showrunner/creator Dan Harmon, the man considered the heart and soul of the series. The fourth season ran for thirteen episodes, and was shaky, but it had just enough viewers to get a fifth season. And now it appears...

Dan Harmon Moves On Past 'Community' To 'Rick And Morty'

Community may be a small show but it's filled with pure brilliance. For years a small but loyal group of fans stood behind creator Dan Harmon as his clever show bobbed in and out of hiatus at NBC. After getting the sudden boot from his own show, did Mr. Harmon sit around and pout about it? Heck no. He went out there and sold several new shows, including an...

It’s been a tough year for Community fans—after the wickedly brilliant (and depressingly under-watched) NBC comedy wrapped up its third stellar season in May, series creator and showrunner Dan Harmon was promptly given the boot by the NBC.  This, of course, led many fans to become horrified at the thought of a rudderless season four of Community without Harmon's darkly...

When Dan Harmon, creator of Community, was essentially fired off his own show at the beginning of summer, there was a sense that Community was dead to the world, even if had been renewed for a fourth season. It was like a chicken with its head cut off - still moving forward, but pointlessly. Now there's some good news about the upcoming...

Community/former SNL star Chevy Chase isn’t exactly known as a man of tact or mincing words, as evidenced when Community creator Dan Harmon released voicemails earlier this year featuring Chase frothing that the beloved NBC comedy is "a mediocre f*****g sitcom" that “ain’t funny to me.”  Rumor had it, though, that Chase and Harmon had...
