After yesterday’s dramatic, 11th hour news that Community would be returning for a sixth season on Yahoo, fans of the show surely thought they could not be happier. And yet…they were wrong.
A show whose ethos has long been “six seasons and a movie,” Community may be getting exactly that. When asked about a possible seventh season in an interview with THR, Sony president of programming Zack Van Amburg said “I don't know, let's see how our movie does! Isn't that our plan? There's no way we're not making the movie now!”
OK, so he’s probably just joking because hey, we’ve all got a little irrational Community fever. But, wait…what’s this? Van Amburg also said that “I'd be lying if I told you that we have not had some very early and preliminary conversations that are very exciting about what a potential movie could be and who might direct it.”
Well then. That certainly sounds definitive, but like all good Community fans, we’ll continue writing letters and sending tweets until we’re absolutely sure it’s happening. Because you never know.
