One would think that the mantra "Six seasons and a movie" would end last month when NBC announced that "Community" will not be renewed for a sixth season but these fans are presistent and with that persistence comes hope. This hope comes in a rumor that Hulu may pick up "Community" as part of their lineup.
Deadline.com announced earlier this week that this is a possibility because creator Dan Harmon mentioned in his blog that there was mention from Sony about the show living elsewhere. Here is what he said
"I will confess, however, that when Sony called me on Friday with the news, there was brief discussion at the end of the call about the concept of the show living elsewhere, and I was definitely in the “eh” column. For a million reasons, some selfish, some creative, one logistic, five sexual, three racist (in a good way) and, oddly, nine isometric. I won’t bore you with them. I mean, of course I will bore you with them. Boring you is my job, my hobby and my passion. But it doesn’t matter right now WHY I’d be lukewarm or if my reasons would be valid, what matters is, I won’t be lukewarm. I’ll heat up. I said “eh” on a Friday afternoon, I will change it to a “sure, let’s talk” on Monday morning and Sony can do their thing. I’m not going to be the guy that recancels cancelled Community."
And Hulu would be the perfect channel for "Community" to return especially since the new CEO Mike Hopkins promised to quadruple the original programming in the future and to help move Hulu into a network level viewereship. At this time Hulu has over 6 million viewers that could easily hold this level of viewership.
So, do you think we can get "six seasons and a movie"? Let's see what Sony does with "Community" now, they do have a good track record of reviving cancelled shows.
