Get ready for the new daily show

Community star says the movie is coming… and everyone is in

April 16th, 2021 by Marc Comments

In recent times we’re reported that Community creator Dan Harmon has said a movie is a likely event in the future (here) but that was last May and there’s been nothing since.

Until now.

Now, star Yvette Nicole Brown – who played Shirley in the hit series – has said that “I think it’s coming”.

the show, set in Greedale Community College focused on a group of unlikely friends – Jeff, Britta, Abed, Annie, Shirley and Troy – who come together at the college and had wacky, weekly adventures but, like shows like Scrubs, there was a much deeper meaning and moral behind the tales and, after is was canceled in Season 6, one of the knowing lines in the show, “Six seasons and a movie”, has become the motto of the show’s creators and fans.

“We [the cast] have a reunion every morning,” says Brown, “We have a group text that is popping. We joke and laugh with each other randomly. You never know who is going to start it — it may be a joke somebody has or it may be some fan art somebody got — but we always check in with each other daily.”

She then goes on to say that, not only does she think a movie will happen, but they’re all on for it and that’s usually the hardest part of bringing back ensemble casts: “The movie? I think it’s coming. I don’t know when, [but] I know we all want to do it and that’s half the battle.”

Personally, while the final season was pretty dour, I love Community and it’s one of my go-to background TV shows and is very often playing on one of the screen somewhere in my house while I’m working, so having a movie – I’m guessing on a streaming service – would be a great end to the show’s history.

Wonder will Chevy Chase come back?

Anyway, let me know what you all think?

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
