The unofficial “Six Seasons and a Movie” slogan for NBC’s beloved if underseen comedy Community began as an offhanded joke by Danny Pudi’s Abed, but it’s now looking like a serious harbinger for things to come. Though creator Dan Harmon returned as showrunner for the fifth season and things have been on a creative upswing, ratings remain very low. However, every comedy on NBC’s Thursday night lineup has low ratings. In fact, after canceling all of its comedy shows besides Community and Parks and Recreation last year, these two remain the only comedies still chugging along on Thursday night as new bets like Sean Saves the World and The Michael J Fox Show have already fallen by the wayside.
As Community continues its low yet consistent ratings course, a sixth season renewal is looking more likely, and given the “Six Seasons and a Movie” moniker, talk of a movie is apparently heating up. Hit the jump for more.
