Community Season 6… and a movie?

The latest chapter in the ever turbulent history of the former NBC comedy Community kicks off in a couple of weeks with Community season 6 starting on Yahoo Screen from March 17th in weekly instalments.

As if they needed to prove that Community was as movie-trope driven as ever, the new trailer takes a pop at the Avengers: Age of Ultron previews as the Greendale students prepare to enter a new Dean-mension.

Despite a the loss of a few old faces, Community season 6 brings back Joel McHale, Gillian Jacobs, Danny Pudi, Alison Brie, Jim Rash, and Ken Jeong.

Also joining the main cast this year are Paget Brewster (Criminal Minds), who will play Francesca “Frankie” Dent, while Keith David (Enlisted) plays retired scientist Elroy Patashnik.

Community’s School Report

The meta-filled sitcom’s history almost became as much of a drama more than anything with notable high-profile feuds, sackings and near-cancellations…

– During Season 3, NBC announced it was removing Community from the mid-season schedule to bring back 30 Rock, with the show returning after a 5 month hiatus.

– A bust up between creator Dan Harmon and Chevy Chase towards the end of Season 3 led to Harmon being replaced as show-runner for Season 4 and Chase leaving his role as Pierce Hawthorne.

– The following year, Donald Glover (Troy Barnes) announced his intention to spend more time producing music under his stage name of Childish Gambino and only appeared in five of the 13 episodes of Season 5.

– After years of near-misses, NBC finally pulled the plug on Community in May 2014 announcing its cancellation, before Yahoo! stepped in on 30th June 2015, the day the cast’s contracts expired, to announce it had ordered 13 new episodes to make up Community Season 6. It was also announced that Yvette Nicole Brown (Shirley Bennett) was leaving for family reasons.

TV is dead, long live streaming..?

After Netflix’s success with original series like House of Cards, Orange is the New Black and Bojack Horseman and a continuation of the original cancelled-too-soon sitcom Arrested Development, it’s big business now getting your TV shows away from TV.

Giving audiences a legit way of watching new shows without illegal streaming, by giving them on-demand viewing away from restrictions of network schedules looks to be the future.

So what other series should be given a new lease of life away from the harsh expectations of network TV?
