Joel McHale: “I Think We’re Doing A [Community] Movie.”
It looks like we might get six seasons and a movie after all.
Speaking about Community on US talk-show Conan, series star Joel McHale said, “Yahoo want to do more. I don’t think we are, unless they pay me a lot of money… I think we will do a movie if Dan [Harmon, creator] will write the script.”
Joel plays Jeff Winger in the cult hit series, originally a former lawyer forced to obtain a law degree at community college after his employers discovered he lied about his qualifications when applying for the job.
Community, despite attracting a large cult following, was never a massive ratings draw and was cancelled after its fifth season by NBC. After a strong fan reaction to the axe, it was picked up for a sixth season by Yahoo Screen in a $2 billion deal. Community airs on Sony Entertainment Television in the UK.
