Zack Van Amburg also confirms whole cast will return for new series

A Community movie could follow the sixth season of the hit US sitcom.

The US comedy was cancelled by broadcaster NBC earlier this year but will return after Yahoo Screen stepped in to revive it. Yahoo have committed to a 13-episode run for the sixth season, which is also expected to be its last.

Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, Sony Pictures Television president of programming and production Zack Van Amburg said that fans wish for “six seasons and a movie” is likely to come true after the next series airs on Yahoo.

“There’s no way we’re not making the movie now!” said Van Amburg before going on to say, “I’d be lying if I told you that we have not had some very early and preliminary conversations that are very exciting about what a potential movie could be and who might direct it. It’s early but it’s completely in our thought process.”

The cult US comedy revolved around a motley crew of adult students at a community college in the fictional town of Greendale, Colorado and starred Donald Glover, Joel McHale and Alison Brie among others. The show’s UK home is on the Sony Entertainment Television channel.
