Will Hulu Resurrect COMMUNITY?

Good news today for Human Beings everywhere — Deadline discovered that Hulu has begun discussions with Sony Pictures TV about bringing the recently cancelled Community back to life via the digital platform. Though fans were heartbroken when NBC announced the cult favorite sitcom would not return for a sixth season (and thus ending our dreams of “six seasons and a movie”), the news was hardly a shock, since Community, long one of the network’s bubble shows, had barely managed to survive five seasons. But since this year saw the return of fired creator Dan Harmon, and consequently a creative resurgence, the dream has refused to die.

Hulu currently has a digital syndication deal with Community (which is also syndicated via Comedy Central), and the show enjoys a huge online following, a desirable audience for advertisers. So Hulu would be a natural fit. Harmon has apparently expressed his interest in the idea, saying via his blog, “I’m not going to be the guy that re-cancels cancelled Community.” And as Deadline points out, Sony has a proven track record in saving its bubble shows, chief among them Damages and Rules of Engagement. Still, this is a far from done deal. So while it’s hard not to hope we will yet discover the identity of the Ass Crack Bandit or learn what sailing around the world with LeVar Burton does to Troy, let’s try to remain cautious in our optimism.

What do you think — has Community already lived its nine lives? Or should we not give up the fight until we’ve see the Greendale gang shoot paintballs across movie screens everywhere? Let us know!

    I was just seeking this information for some time. After six hours of continuous Googleing, at last I got it in your site. I wonder what’s the lack of Google strategy that don’t rank this type of informative sites in top of the list. Usually the top sites are full of garbage.

    The things i have often told men and women is that when you are evaluating a good online electronics retail outlet, there are a few elements that you have to take into account. First and foremost, you should really make sure to get a reputable plus reliable store that has gotten great opinions and ratings from other consumers and business world advisors. This will make sure that you are handling a well-known store that delivers good service and assistance to their patrons. Thanks for sharing your opinions on this web site.

  3. Great info and right to the point. I don’t know if this is in fact the best place to ask but do you folks have any thoughts on where to hire some professional writers? Thanks in advance 🙂

    Thanks for the guidelines shared on your blog. Something also important I would like to express is that fat loss is not all about going on a dietary fads and trying to shed as much weight as you’re able in a couple of weeks. The most effective way to lose weight naturally is by taking it slowly but surely and following some basic recommendations which can allow you to make the most from your attempt to shed pounds. You may learn and be following a few of these tips, but reinforcing knowledge never hurts.

    Its like you read my mind! You seem to know so much about this, like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you could do with a few pics to drive the message home a little bit, but other than that, this is great blog. An excellent read. I’ll definitely be back.

    Hi, Neat post. There’s a problem with your web site in internet explorer, would test this… IE still is the market leader and a large portion of people will miss your wonderful writing because of this problem.

  9. Jc says:

    Hulu is not available OUTSIDE the AMERICAS, the fact they are unable to navigate the international commercial market is an indication that they are a poor choice for a TV show with already decent following.

    I will get a tattoo that says six seasons and a movie or proud to be a Greendale human being if they promise to bring it back lol…….under one conditon they have to bring troy and pierce if not it will feel as hollow as season 5 did

  11. pccasestudy says:

    Sadly, I think it’s time to let it go. :/

  12. If it comes back, they’ll need to start with “wow, the Earth just missed that meteor!”

  13. William says:

    After the most engaging and revolutionary season in it’s history, it will be tough to top but if it can be done, Harmon and his writers and the amazing cast of Community truly have the ability to change TV. 

  14. Samuel Fast says:

    Bring it back!!!  Now!!!!

  15. Jack says:

    Oh, just let it die, already…It already lasted 4 seasons longer than it should have. It simply did not deliver the ratings; its a mystery that they kept it around as long as they did.  (Please Note: This is not a comment on the quality of the show. Its all about the ratings, which NBC is in the business of getting. If it doesnt get it, it makes no sense to keep it on the air.

    • your reply makes no sense.  “The show is good, but it should not be able to go to Hulu and it should die because it didn’t meet NBC’s ratings.”  Huh?

  16. andrew says:

    duh. #sixseasonsandamovie AND a community/reading rainbow crossover spinoff where troy reads to island kids on his trip

  17. David says:

    A question is not an acceptable headline for an article. C’mon Nerdist, you don’t have to be like the rest of the internet, you can be better. 

  18. I’ll sign up for Hulu Plus if they do this

  19. Brian Bouton says:

    SPOILER: LeVar is alive and well on Kickstarter offering a Reading Rainbow App, so this must mean TROY IS ALIVE AND WELL!

  21. Joshua Hobby says:

    If they do bring the show back I hope they show a news story about an Asteroid narrowly avoiding the Earth
