Dan Harmon gives update on possible ‘Community’ movie

Six seasons and a movie for real?

Dan Harmon has given fans an update on the likelihood of a Community film.

The cult sitcom ran for six seasons from 2009 to 2015, and starred the likes of Donald Glover, Chevy Chase and Alison Brie.

With one of the show’s most quoted lines – “six seasons and a movie” – still a beloved catchphrase of the Community fanbase, the show’s creator Harmon has now given fans an update on whether that prophecy will ever be fulfilled.

Harmon, who also co-created Rick & Morty, revealed that the door hasn’t been closed on a revival of Community just yet.

“I keep having conversations with the kinds of people that could make it happen,” Harmon told The Wrap. “The Russo brothers moved from Community to becoming industry shapers. So did one of our most popular directors, Justin Lin, who directed the first paintball episode.

“I hope I’m not talking out of school by saying that,” he added. “I’ll get together with him every once in a while, or we’ll have dinner, and we’re talking — we keep trying to figure out how to do this.

“Those are the kinds of guys, the Russos, plus Justin, plus a humble little me — maybe there is a way to secure the money and the momentum to make something happen. But fingers crossed — don’t want to jinx it.”

Speaking about a possible Community film earlier this year, Alison Brie told NME that she was “up for it”.

“I’m never one to really give up hope and I think that it could happen eventually, maybe in an Arrested Development-type way,” she said.
