“Community” is step by step getting closer to its six seasons and a movie goal. Will the cult favourite be back for a 5th season? Maybe.
On Sunday, NBC’s entertainment chairman Robert Greenblatt told reporters that fans could get their wishes granted, and that the comedy could “absolutely” get a fifth season. “Absolutely,” he said. “We’re always hopeful for a show to continue. And we co-own it. I’d love nothing more than to see it continue.”
There have been a few changes recently at Greendale Community College, with “Community” showrunner Dan Harmon stepping down and Chevy Chase making his way out, and so the fate of the show seems to be on a bit of rocky ground. Greenblatt however says that there should be no lasting negative impacts of these changes. “Actors come and go on a lot of shows and this is a big ensemble,” Greenblatt said. “I don’t think that’s going to be a big negative about the future of the show.”
With the show premiering next month, Greenblatt promises that “Community” will deliver the same charm and comedy as before. “You’re going to see relatively the same show you’ve seen before and I hope that’s a good thing,” he said. “Maybe there’s a little more heart built into it, but we didn’t fundamentally change it.”
Are you looking forward to the return of “Community”?
