Will it happen?
IGN spoke with the cast and crew of Community about the show's chances of coming back for a sixth season. Check out the highlights:
Creator Dan Harmon: "It's a win/win, right? Now it's going to be equally historical whether we get it or don't. That's the weirdest thing about it. Can you think of anything weirder than getting the sixth season? Yes, one weirder thing... Not getting it! Either way, it's going to be the most incredible story ever. Because you can still call the book about Community 'Six Seasons and a Movie,' if the story ends at Season 5. It will just be a story of this thing that never got to happen."
EP Chris McKenna: "I really never try to count the show out. It's insane that even though we wrapped in December, we're still producing these last few episodes. That's really what I'm focusing on right now. I don't know. I keep on hearing threatened rumors of a sixth season. It's got to be something that people feel... that the gods that be, who are the money guys, must determine that they can ring some more money out of the show that way, then fine. But it would be exciting to have this sort of thrown off joke in the second season, which fans embraced, turn into this reality."
Jim Rash: "It's the same thing every year. Except for Season 1 to 2, it was never a sure thing. And I feel like the best news we have is the sense that this season there was sort of this renewed energy and I felt like it was showing what Community has and the stories it still has left. At the same time, I love the proclamation of six seasons and a movie. I'd do it until the end of days, but it's so nice to hold that realization that we can really finish it and there's something about Community ending with a movie which just seems right, because it deserves something epic, because that's sort of its voice. So that's all we can do, is wait and hope."
Yvette Nicole Brown: "We're very close to six seasons and a movie, and if NBC at all cares about that then they will probably give us a short season and maybe a TV movie to make everybody happy. I really have no idea. I can't call it!"
