The Community Movie Will Happen, Creator Dan Harmon Says

During an appearance on Larry King Now, Dan Harmon dropped some news that is seriously streets ahead. The Community creator revealed he still has every intention of making the #SixSeasonsAndAMovie prophecy come true. He's just waiting for the perfect time to write the movie.

"If I pull out a typewriter right now and write a Community movie just for my own heart and mind, then I have to go through the heartbreak and agony of finding out which of the people will show up to make it," Harmon said. "On the other hand, if I wait for everyone to line up and say, 'We're all out of work and ready to do a Community movie,' well, I guess that's a bad idea too."

Community: Do we even still want six seasons and a movie?

After five seasons on NBC (one of which Harmon wasn't involved in), Community was picked up for a sixth season by Yahoo! before being canceled for good. Now, the cast has moved on, with Donald Glover focused on his new FX comedy Atlanta; Joel McHale starring in an upcoming CBS sitcom The Great Outdoors; Yvette Nicole Brown co-starring on The Odd Couple; Alison Brie voicing a horse's ghostwriter on BoJack Horseman; Gillian Jacobs starring on the Judd Apatow series Love; and Danny Pudi set to return to NBC on the new midseason comedy Powerless.

Despite his stars' busy schedules, Harmon remains optimistic about Community's future. "It'll make a great movie. It'll happen," he declares.

I'll believe it when I see it. Maybe it can open the same day as the Arrested Development movie, and Netflix can stream all of Firefly season 2 that day as well.

Pop pop!

It would be so great if they were able to get Six Seasons and a Movie, especially if they were able to get as much of the cast as possible to come back. But above all else, I'd need to have Troy come back one last time.

I loved the finale so i'm not bothered either way

however - it would be awesome if it did accomplish #SixSeasonsAndAMovie
But Donald Glover better come back if it does happen

I suspect if there is ever a movie made it won't be with the TV cast.

Pretty pointless making a movie if it doesn't actually have the cast from the show in it!

As much as I loved Community I have serious doubts about how well a sitcom will transfer to the movie format.I guess we are going to find out.I would rather have them come back in a few years with like a 4 episode sitcom format run to catch us up on what happened to the characters.
