COMMUNITY Season 6 Teaser Recaps 5 Seasons of Ups and Downs for the Resurrected Comedy

by     Posted 69 days ago

community-season-6-teaser

It’s a little hard to believe that Community actually lasted five whole seasons on network television.  Once the sitcom found its weird/meta groove a few episodes into its first season, it soldiered on and never looked back.  The show battled network disappointment, high fan expectations, cast departures, and even the firing—and rehiring—of its own showrunner Dan Harmon before NBC finally opted to cancel the show once and for all after Season 5.  Plenty of fans were upset, especially given the “Six Seasons and a Movie” rally cry, but Yahoo! Screen came to the resuce at the very last minute to resurrect the show for a sixth season.  Yahoo! has now released a Community Season 6 teaser that recaps the last five years of madness (all but glossing over the Harmon-less Season 4) and teases the upcoming resurrection of the show, complete with Six Million Dollar Man references galore.

Hit the jump to watch the Community Season 6 teaser.  A premiere date has yet to be set, but given that the new season hasn’t started filming yet, one imagines it may be early 2015 before we see new episodes.

COMMUNITY Season 6 Will Return on Yahoo Screen

Never underestimate Community’s power of resurrection.  After years facing cancellation on NBC, not to mention a showrunner change that drained the show’s creativity followed by the return of Dan Harmon the following season, the network finally brought the ax down this May, just as the series was on the cusp of fulfilling its unlikely “Six Seasons and a Movie” prophecy.  Talk then turned to a potential season six continuation on Hulu, but that prospect never came to fruition.  Sony TV had a contractual hold on the cast through June 30th, and as the days wound down, it looked like the show might finally be dead.  And then, almost as if on cue, Sony TV announced today that Community season 6 will continue on the interwebs via Yahoo Screen.  Hit the jump for more.

NBC Cancels COMMUNITY after 5 Seasons

Alas, it appears that Community will fall short of its “Six Seasons and a Movie” battle cry.  TV Line confirms that NBC has finally cancelled the ratings-challenged sitcom, which went through its fair share of behind-the-scenes drama as well; it’s really almost a miracle it lasted this long.  Though the life of the series was cut short, we can be thankful for five four seasons worth of weirdness that ranged from broad comedy to dark drama.  The show at times verged on being too strange, even for Community, but it was never dull under the guidance of creator/showrunner/mad genius Dan Harmon.  He’s truly one of a kind.

COMMUNITY Season 6 Renewal Looking More Likely as Movie Talk Heats Up; Justin Lin Could Direct

by     Posted 210 days ago

community-movie-alison-brie-danny-pudi

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.

Focus World has released a few new images from director Steven Brill’s (Mr. Deeds) upcoming comedy Walk of Shame.  The film stars Elizabeth Banks as a news anchor who finds herself out on the street after a drunken one-night stand with no money, identification, or means of travel.  Her shameful trek across Los Angeles is fraught with misadventures as she attempts to make it to a career-changing job interview.  These images give us a look at Banks and the film’s male lead, played by James Marsden, as well as some of the ensemble.  The pic’s release has been delayed a couple of times, but Banks is incredibly funny so the prospect of seeing her lead a comedy all her own is enticing.

Miracle on Jeff’s Street: COMMUNITY Gets Animated in New Season Five Holiday Trailer

by     Posted 307 days ago

community-season-5-animated-slice

Community has never been a ratings hit for NBC, but the network seems to be busting out a considerable marketing budget for the upcoming fifth season.  Moreover, these promos feel like executive producer Dan Harmon had a very heavy hand in their creation.  The initial season five trailer took the “movie trailer” route, and now a new holiday-themed animated trailer has been released online.  It’s filled with some fun gags and the show’s trademark meta humor, which bodes well for its return following a lackluster season four.  With creator Harmon now back in the fold as showrunner, the shenanigans should be aplenty in the upcoming season.

Hit the jump to watch the animated trailer. Season five of Community kicks off on NBC Thursday, January 2nd.

First Trailer for COMMUNITY Season 5

NBC has unveiled the first trailer for the upcoming fifth season of the comedy series Community.  While fans were a bit dismayed with how season four played out without the direction of creator Dan Harmon, he’s back onboard as showrunner for season five and this trailer makes pointed reference to what may be a bit of a “do-over” for the show.  The biggest revelation in this trailer is the circumstances behind how Joel McHale’s Jeff Winger returns to Greendale Community College full time.  Though I’m sure it will be plenty spoiled in the many promos to come, I’ll let you folks enjoy the revelation at your own discretion.

Surprisingly, Bad Milo, which is a movie about an ass demon, also has a lot of heart.  As the pressures of Duncan’s (Ken Marino) life start mounting, his stress triggers an insufferable gastrointestinal reaction that results in a pint-sized demon living in his intestine, that forces its way out and slaughters the people who have angered him.  Trying to keep its insatiable appetite at bay, Duncan attempts to befriend it, naming it Milo.

At the film’s press day, actress Gillian Jacobs (who plays Duncan’s sweet, yet pressuring wife) talked about her first reaction to the script, making sure the story always stayed grounded in reality, how adorable she thought the Milo puppet was, and her strangest moment on set.  She also talked about her experience on Hot Tub Time Machine 2, what she’s looking forward to with the upcoming season of her NBC comedy series Community, and shooting a supporting role in the Kevin Costner movie, Black and White.  Check out what she had to say after the jump.

In the short film It’s Not You, It’s Me, a young woman’s (Gillian Jacobs) relationship takes a dark turn when every sound her boyfriend (Fran Kranz) makes starts to annoy her.  And then, things start to get really messy.  Directed by Matt Spicer, you can view the film through JASH, a comedy collective on YouTube that gives comedians and artists a platform to create and control their own digital content, at www.youtube.com/buh.

During this recent exclusive interview with Collider, actress Gillian Jacobs talked about how this project came about for her, being a big fan of Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim, how much fun she had working with Fran Kranz and Rob Huebel, how crazy it was to shoot so much content in only three days, and how the idea of JASH has inspired her to think about creating her own original content.  She also talked about why the crazy concept of Bad Milo (a horror comedy about a guy who learns that his unusual stomach problems are being caused by a demon living in his intestines) appealed to her, what it’s meant to her to be a part of a series like Community, that the fans are so dedicated and devoted to, and how she ultimately wants to find a balance between comedy and drama work.  Check out what she had to say after the jump.
