While you wouldn’t necessarily know it watching episodes of Hannibal, there are still quite a few restrictions for network television shows. Thanks to strict regulations from the Federal Communications Commission, network shows are forced to operate without the cursing, nudity and other forms of adult content that can be found on cable. This is one of the factors that makes Community’s upcoming move from NBC to Yahoo! Screen so interesting...
Here are five series that never got the Primetime Emmy attention they deserve, and probably never will. This obviously isn’t an exhaustive list, and doesn’t reflect the entire TV landscape, but these are series that have been on for multiple years that mostly retained the same level of quality and enjoyment.
It's official, Community has been saved! It's not coming back at NBC, nor Hulu. As it happens, it'll be Yahoo that will bring the series back for its sixth season. We knew that the deadline for the actors' contracts was expiring today, so it's no surprise that we'd hear some kind of update about Community. As it happens, it's good news, as the series will live on for thirteen more episodes.
While all hope isn't quite lost for a Community revival, it doesn't look like that'll be happening at Hulu. Word is, the streaming video service has walked away from negotiations to acquire the cancelled NBC comedy, which means if Community's going to get its sixth season (and a movie?) it'll have to look elsewhere before the deadline.
When Community was cancelled earlier this month, there was a strange lingering sense of hope that lingered in the air. After all, the show has gone through more behind-the-scenes ups and downs than anything else currently on television and yet seemed to always survive (plus the mantra "six seasons and a movie" just felt too much like a prophecy).
NBC's loss is HBO's gain. Gillian Jacobs, who starred in the unfortunately-cancelled NBC comedy Community is set to play a role in HBO's comedy Girls for its fourth season, which is expected to air on the premium cable channel early next year.
An open letter was delivered on the showrunner’s Tumblr page, and while I’m going to be breaking down its most important parts inside, I would seriously highly recommend that you read the whole thing for yourself. It is a must-read for any Community fans, but also fascinating for any regular TV watcher.
Considering myself an optimist by nature, I'd be happy to report news that gave us some hope that Community might see its sixth season and a movie. Unfortunately, that's not what we're hearing. Multiple sources are reporting quite the opposite, in fact. It sounds like Netflix is out for reviving the show, and series creator Dan Harmon is reportedly ready to move on to other projects.
We’ve all known Community has been on its last legs for awhile. Between Dan Harmon’s firing, Dan Harmon’s re-hiring and less than stellar ratings, even the most hardcore fans have been willing to admit the expiration date isn’t too far away. Alas, however, the battle cry of six season and a movie lived on for most! If only it could get there, everyone would be happy.
Anytime Annie has cause to yell "Booyah," it's a good day, right? And that's her response when Abed finds that thing they're looking for in the new clip from the season finale of Community, which airs tomorrow night. And we get to see how Professor Hickey reacts when someone asks if anyone has any rope.
Community will wrap up its fifth season this week as the fate of Greendale hangs in the balance. As the above teaser indicates, adventure awaits in what could be our last
Yo, Joe! Or Yo, Jeff as it were. Community has never been entirely bound to a live-action reality, as demonstrated by "Abed's Uncontrollable Christmas." And next Thursday, the NBC comedy will go animated again, this time in the vein of the 1980s classic cartoon G.I. Joe.
Last night on E!’s The Soup, Community stars Joel McHale and Jim Rash did what they do best: skewer and satirize a movement in the cultural zeitgeist. In this case, the HBO series True Detective, which literally no one on planet earth can stop talking about and/or obsessing over. And we have to admit: their purposefully confounding clip is pretty funny.
We have a lot to look forward to from this week's episode of Community, which features guest appearances from Nathan Fillion, Criminal Minds' Paget Brewster, Terminator 2's Robert Patrick, comedian Kumail Nanjiani and Switched at Birth's Katie Leclerc.
Dan Harmon has returned to his flagship production, NBC’s kooky meta-comedy Community, but unfortunately the fans may not have followed suit. Oh god: are we living in the darkest timeline, after all? Last night’s season five premiere — which found Harmon back in the creative drivers’ seat after being fired prior to season four — featured two back-to-back episodes and averaged 3.4 million viewers. But there's hope to be had, still, people of Greendale!
