Community returns for a sixth season on Peacock

After making unlikely returns for its fourth, fifth, and sixth seasons, Community will deliver a longtime joke/promise with a movie, but this time it’s on NBC’s streaming service, Peacock. Community debuted in 2009, and when NBC canceled the show in 2014, fans launched a social media campaign for #SixSeasonsandaMovie based on a line from the show, which they will now get.

Series creator Dan Harmon is on board, along with much of the original case, including Joel McHale, Danny Pudi, Alison Brie, Gillian Jacobs, Jim Rash, and Ken Jeong. For the past few months, Harmon had said the movie was all about “when and not if,” and now we understand why he was so confident. Original cast members who left the series before its end, such as Yvette Nicole Brown, Chevy Chase and Donald Glover, were not mentioned in the press release announcing the film.

Peacock didn’t even exist for any part of the series since its launch in 2020, but somehow fulfills the fateful prediction of the show which, at the time it was said, seemed destined to be fulfilled by Netflix since it was virtually the only current subscription streaming service.

Sony Pictures TV and Universal Television are working together on the new season, which doesn’t yet have a release date, and mentioned that Peacock has (not exclusively) acquired the rights to stream the full library of the series. It could be coming soon, though, as the press release included the image above, which is apparently from Season 6 Episode 9, titled “Grifting.”

Disclosure: Comcast, owner of NBCUniversal, is also an investor in Vox Media, The edgemother Society.
