Dan Harmon on Community future: Nothing determined but Yahoo wanted to 'do a movie immediately'
It has been less than a week since the well-received Community season (series?) finale aired, which seems like more than enough time to start asking if there will be more Community in some form. Which is exactly what EW Radio host Jessica Shaw did in her interview with series creator Dan Harmon (and his Ricky and Morty co-creator Justin Roiland) at the ATX Festival in Austin today.
“I told Yahoo, ‘I can’t think about writing a movie until I miss Community,'” said Harmon when asked about the possibility of seventh season or a destiny-fulfilling movie. “They wanted to turn around and do a movie immediately, and Yahoo can get it done. They’re like the NSA.” Of course, with cast members moving on to other projects, “the difficulty is in just: Can you get all the actors in the same place again?” he said.
Harmon sounded more than pleased when discussing the community college comedy’s move from NBC to the streaming service this season: “Yahoo was so supportive that I completely self-destructed in season 6. I mean, I had no bad guys left. Yahoo was like Daddy Warbucks just picking Annie up at the orphanage, except in my version, Annie just like starts saying, “Maybe the sun won’t come out tomorrow,” and starts taking Ritalin in her office.” Check out more of the interview below.
