Yahoo revived the sitcom "Community" after it was canceled by NBC in 2014. Now, "Community" creator Dan Harmon says Yahoo is interested in doing a movie -- which would give "Community" fans their beloved "#sixseasonsandamovie."
"I told Yahoo, 'I can't think about writing a movie until I miss 'Community,' " Harmon told Entertainment Weekly during an interview at ATX Television Festival in Austin, Texas. "They wanted to turn around and do a movie immediately, and Yahoo can get it done. They're like the NSA."
Last week, series star Joel McHale also spoke of the possibility of doing a movie during an appearance on "Conan." "I think we will do a movie if Dan will write the script," McHale said.
Apart from Harmon's writing a script, the other obstacle standing in the show's way is scheduling. Several cast members, of the ones who remain, have already moved on to other projects. McHale is embarking on a six-episode guest run on FOX's "The X-Files" revival. Ken Jeong, who plays Greendale Community College's deranged former Spanish teacher, has a new sitcom on ABC this fall, the aptly titled "Dr. Ken."
The sixth season of "Community" ended last week with an episode that felt very much like a series finale. Soon after the finale aired, Deadline reported that Yahoo and Sony TV had started negotiating a seventh season. Although Yahoo didn't confirm the negotiations, it did release a statement in which it expressed how pleased it was with the sixth season and told fans to stay tuned for how it plans to keep delighting them.
Following the finale, Harmon announced that he was taking a break from Twitter and interviews.
The finale airs in a couple hours. I'm gonna delete my Twitter app and take a couple weeks off the internet and no interviews and I love you
