It's not been decided if tonight is the end of all things. The renewal is up in the air until NBC decide how desperate next year's schedule is looking or if they want to renew the show just so they can actually use the #sixseasonsandamovie for actual promotional purposes. wink.gif

Show has not been cancelled, but it has not be renewed either. Essentially in limbo.

With the lame lineup NBC has, chances of renewal are actually pretty high.

Saved by the Dean!

Because yet again Dean gave me the best laughs. Shooting the rocket in his mouth I though was hilarious.

The computer genius stuff was all kind of flat though. The NBC promos on the other hand were as good as the fake promos in the Forgetting Sarah Marshall movie.

Now we have to wait and see if the show comes back. If it doesn't then it will be the end of both Greendale and the world and everyone will have died in the end.

It was an OK episode. Always nice to see Chris Elliott. I think what's been killing my buzz the past few seasons is that in each season they're trying to wrap things up because in real life they have no idea if the show is done is coming back or not. Seasons 1 and 2 and the beginning of 3 remain my favorites. This was a nice short season, but I don't find it any more or less memorable than the gas leak season. Losing Troy really hurt the show.

Like the whole short season it had it's moments, but was just okay. There are so few good comedies left on television right now that I hope it comes back but I could survive without it too.

I enjoyed the season/series finale. Hope it gets picked up. I'd tune in for those other shows too. Thought Jackers. Lol.

Can't decide if I'm upset or not about it, but Community was finally killed off at NBC today. Who knows if Sony will shop it to anyone else, but it doesn't look good. The loss of Chevy and then Donald really hurt the show's appeal to me, so I guess that's why I'm not feeling all that bothered by this. I actually found that I enjoyed more of the Harmon-less season than this past one. A lot of that comes down to Donald.

I enjoyed the run, warts 'n all.
It was a special show and I'll always have my favorite episodes to return to when I need a shot of comedic brilliance.

Mourning the disappearing usage of the -ly suffix. Words being cut-off before they've had a chance to fully form, left incomplete, with their shoelaces untied and their zippers undone. If I quote your post (or post in your thread) without comment, please check your zipper.

And Community was finally killed for sharing the same timeslot as that unholy juggernaut, The Big Bang Theory. Meanwhile, over at CBS: [laugh track intensifies]

True enough. I bought all 5 seasons on iTunes over the past couple of years. I find myself returning to season 2 more than any other, but I'm glad I have them all.

More Than a Tweet

I have always tried to be as transparent with you guys as possible, letting you in on the process of making (and not making) Community. So maybe my silence on the issue of a hypothetical sixth season seems frustrating. I was thinking I could stay quiet because there’s too much to say and anything can become a headline because of the timing, and I am so very sick of clicking on my dumb fat name and seeing my dumb fat face in that dumb photo where I’m pointing at the camera and my hands are inexplicably tiny despite being closer to the camera.

But, I’m getting tweets from some anxious sounding fans, tweets that make me anxious because I feel like I’ve made THEM anxious with my silence, etc.

The general feel of my twitter feed is “well, what should we do, do you want us to petition/riot/negotiate/scream or do you want us to say goodbye and let it be done?” There’s also references to an article in an industry gossip blog, which I won’t click, indicating that everyone in the world BUT me wants to shop Community around. And probably featuring that ****ing weird tiny hand photo. Or the one where I’m snarling and my teeth are like corn kernels.

Let’s start with that, the idea that I don’t want this to continue. I don’t think I’m the guy that gets to say what happens at the more effective levels - my career would have a different shape if I were that guy. I’d fire everyone that fired me, give all of you a raise, let the audience pick which pilots go to series and keep shows running as long as their subscription revenue was a dollar over their budget. I am not Mister Shot Caller Guy. That guy went to a better school, didn’t drop out and has lizard blood.

I will confess, however, that when Sony called me on Friday with the news, there was brief discussion at the end of the call about the concept of the show living elsewhere, and I was definitely in the “eh” column. For a million reasons, some selfish, some creative, one logistic, five sexual, three racist (in a good way) and, oddly, nine isometric. I won’t bore you with them. I mean, of course I will bore you with them. Boring you is my job, my hobby and my passion. But it doesn’t matter right now WHY I’d be lukewarm or if my reasons would be valid, what matters is, I won’t be lukewarm. I’ll heat up. I said “eh” on a Friday afternoon, I will change it to a “sure, let’s talk” on Monday morning and Sony can do their thing. I’m not going to be the guy that recancels cancelled Community.

I’m scared to tell you how little a difference I think my enthusiasm will make. I know fandom, when it gets this deep for this long, becomes almost religious, including the urge to stone the less than faithful. But there are lots of reasons a Community resurrection could be difficult. So be prepared for that. Which brings us to the other thing, the first thing, that most of the anxious tweets are about:

What do we, the fans, do? How can we help? Whose dog can we kidnap? Should we eat at Subway? Does Obama know? Should I have this tattoo removed? Was that Abed in Captain America 2?

I honestly think you can totally sit back and relax for this chapter. I know you don’t feel relaxed but I mean you don’t have to worry that someone on this planet isn’t aware of this show’s value to its audience. There are actually astronauts on a space station right now saying “we get it, you love Community” in Chinese. You have done your thing.

If you want to know the God’s honest truth, part of my “eh” was coming from the unsettling thought of your passion for campaigns being once again exploited by this rather unfair, somewhat backward system, one that now treats you like it’s your responsibility to keep a show alive, like a corporation is doing you a favor by feeding you low grade opiate through a regulated tube. Like you owe them an apology when they can’t measure or monetize you to their satisfaction. You deserve better. I love you guys, and at its best, Community is me saying that over and over again, saying let’s get less mad at ourselves and each other and more mad at the inhuman systems that keep us down and divided. “Maybe it should have said less of that and more jokes.” Shut up, voice of my grade school principal that also coached and umpired softball because shrieking “steeeeeeerike” at children was his sole recourse to virility.

Anyway, I will not be standing in the way. I’m sorry to anyone that’s really taking this cancellation hard. I know how I felt when these ******s killed Max Headroom. But you sit back and treat yourself to some New Girl and Parks and Mindy and Brooklyn 99 and Eagleheart and Portlandia and have you seen Matt Berry’s Toast of London? It’s awesome. Also not to be selfish but maybe check out Rick and Morty. And let TV be the needy clown that it’s still very overpaid to be, and let the suits deal with the suits and see what possibilities exist. That’s the best we can do for now. Ninety seven episodes. Over eighty pretty good ones. Mission accomplished.

By the way, remember when you complained about that one episode? Bet it’s not looking so bad now, huh ass face? Just kidding, I know it sucked. I was going for something cooler and - whatever, I don’t need to explain myself to you. Marry softball if you love it so much. I’m gonna be special when I grow up!

Your Lover
Daniel Anastasia Harmon

TV Notes
‘Community’ Producers in Early Talks With Hulu for Additional Season
By Jethro Nededog, TheWrap.com - May 28, 2014

Sony Pictures Television is investigating a new option to continue “Community” with streaming service Hulu.

An individual with knowledge of the situation told TheWrap that Sony TV and Hulu are in very early talks to continue the canceled NBC comedy for additional episodes. Both parties are motivated to make the deal.

Hulu already has the digital rights to repeats on the show's first five seasons. “Community” is also the type of series that does well on streaming sites due to its niche comedy and very strong online fan community — that doesn't always translate to live viewership metrics still used heavily by networks to measure a show's success.

Comedy Central owns the off-network rights to replays of the show's first five seasons.

Representatives from Sony TV and Hulu declined to comment.

NBC canceled “Community” in March. Never really a ratings hit, the network aired five seasons of the show because it could trust that a certain amount of people — at least four million or so — would tune in loyally each week and it was a critical darling.

The show did have its ups and downs. Creator and showrunner Dan Harmon was fired ahead of Season 4 amid complications with Chevy Chase and tales of bad time management, but he returned for the show's fifth season. And it would end up losing original cast members Chevy Chase and Donald Glover during Season 5.

Its fifth season finale on April 17 drew 2.87 million viewers and a 1.0 rating/4 share with the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic.

I really loved this show at one point, but now, I am just hoping that they let it rest in peace. I still have the last 4 or 5 episodes on my PVR left unwatched, which says a lot.

If they can't bring back the entire cast, I'm fine with letting it go. Without Chevy and Donald, it's not really Community anymore.

Hulu passed on Season 6, but then with no time to spare (contracts were expiring at the end of the day apparently) Yahoo came in and snapped up the rights to season 6. Soooooo yeah. I wonder if they'll put all 13 new episodes out at once or stagger them like TV does. Everyone is signed on from the main cast (and Dan) except obviously Chevy and Donald.

Article I read said all 13 episodes would be available at once sometime in 2015.

I'm still on the fence about this distribution model, even though I have soaked up several series from Netflix this way. From a binge standpoint, it's great. From a discussion standpoint (water-cooler effect), it's a killer.

Since I go to Yahoo only by accident, there is almost no chance I will remember (or bother) to watch this unless it's being piped directly to my television through Amazon or Netflix.

Yep, I just read that too. It's going to feel odd not to really be able to discuss the show episode by episode. I'm also going to have to watch Yahoo TV. Can't say I've ever had a reason to do that before. I hope it's free.

Edit: I just saw this:

Quote:
Community Season 6 will be available in a slightly different format, with the 13 episodes being released weekly this Fall. Consider it a new Greendale course requirement: Advanced TV Revitalization & Anti-Binge-Watching.
Not sure what to believe now.
