Will Dan Harmon Return to COMMUNITY for Season 5? [UPDATED: Moses Port and David Guarascio Officially Out]

After labeling himself a liability that NBC wasn’t willing to keep around, Community creator Dan Harmon left the show before its fourth season.  Now that the network has greenlit a fifth season of the community college comedy, there’s a rumor that Harmon has been asked back to the show in some capacity.  The only confirmation seems to be from Harmon himself in an offhand comment during a recent episode of his podcast, Harmontown.  As TV Line reports, Harmon let the news slip, thought about editing it out and then said: “Ahhh Fuck it. I don’t care who knows!” according to a writer for Hollywookiee.

It remains to be seen whether there’s any truth to the rumor and, if there is, to what capacity Harmon could return: it may be as the consulting producer position that was previously offered to him, though he ended up turning that down.  Community is poised to return to NBC mid-season as their fall line-up is full with the return of Parks and Recreation and the new comedies Welcome to the Family, Sean Hayes’ Sean Saves the World and The Michael J. Fox Show.

[Update: Deadline reports that season four showrunners Moses Port and David Guarascio have officially opted not to return for season five, and both Harmon and former writer/producer Chris McKenna have been approached about rejoining the show for what is expected to be the show’s final 13 episode run.]

"It’s a program that anybody could join, but if you become accepted as a “stitcher,” your consciousness is put into the memories of the dead and you get to solve crimes. It’s giving voice to the victims and the dead of the world, and helping correct injustices for people who died tragically or too young."
