Six seasons and a movie. Like many of you guys out there, I'm a big fan of Rick and Morty co-creator Dan Harmon's live-action NBC sitcom Community. The series contained a running joke that it would run six seasons before getting a movie to tie it all up, and since the show ended after season 6 (get it?) all of us fans have been waiting anxiously for the promised Community: The Movie. And it looks like Community star Alison Brie is keeping the dream alive as she just let us all know she hopes Netflix will bring us the movie in the near future.
When asked if she would be up for reprising her role of Annie Edison again, Allison Brie said this.
"Yeah, I think I would. I mean, look, it's like, are we going to do the movie? I feel like if the Community movie ever gets made, it should just be made for Netflix, and it would be fun to do, but, I think it would be best if we could get everyone to do it, so I feel like that might be difficult."
She then added.
"I love my Community family. We still talk all the time. I was just texting Joel McHale yesterday - we have our group - our group text is going constantly. I love those guys. We're a family. I would love. I'm always down for the idea of that."
Again, I'm a big fan of Community so I'm more than up for a movie or a series revival. That said, as kind of a stickler for landing the joke, I really want to see the whole she-bang end with a movie. Call me crazy if you must. And I can think of nowhere better to host said Community: The Motion Picture than the current streaming giant supreme, Netflix. After all, maybe this potential movie could be where the show finally cuts loose and gives us some F-bombs and boobs to go with our surprisingly clever meta-comedy.
Along with Brie as Annie Edison, Community starred Joel McHale as former lawyer, Jeff Winger; Gillian Jacobs as self-defined anarchist, Britta Perry; Danny Pudi as film student, Abed Nadir; Yvette Nicole Brown as single mother, Shirley Bennett, and Donald Glover as former high school star quarterback, Troy Barnes. Ken Jeong joined them as extremely unstable Greendale teacher, Ben Chang along with Jim Rash as Greendale dean, Craig Pelton, and Chevy Chase as millionaire, Pierce Hawthorne.
The comedy was created by Dan Harmon, who also served as one of the show's executive producers along with Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame directing duo Anthony and Joe Russo, who also directed multiple episodes. As mentioned above, the series ran six seasons and 110 episodes. Krasnoff/Foster Entertainment, Dan Harmon Productions, Russo Brothers Films, Harmonious Claptrap, Universal Media Studios, Universal Television, Sony Pictures Television, Open 4 Business Productions, and Yahoo! Studios were the production companies behind the series. Sony Pictures Television aired the series on NBC for seasons 1-5 before Yahoo! Screen picked up the sixth and final season. The show ran from September 2009 - June 2015. This story comes to us via Pop Culture.
