We love Peacock. It’s a fact. We already loved the streaming service for all its quality products but after *that* Community announcement, we love it even more. Do you want to know what we are talking about? Keep reading!
Here we go!
“Six seasons and a movie” is a phrase that Community fans will know all too well. And, according to Deadline, after much back and forth, it became a reality. Peacock will be in charge of bringing Community: The Movie to our screens.
The streaming service signed original show creator and showrunner Dan Harmon for the film. Community: The Movie also features original series stars Joel McHale, Danny Pudi, Alison Brie, Gillian Jacobs, Jim Rash, and Ken Jeong.
The series focused on Jeff Winger (Joel McHale), a lawyer who returns to college because the Bar Association invalidates his degree, and the experiences he has at the fictional university in Greendale, Colorado, along with the other students who are there and with whom he sets up a Spanish study group. He initially creates the group looking to convince Britta Perry (Gillian Jacobs), a former anarchist trying to get her life in order, to go out with him.
Soon things take a turn and Jeff and Annie (Alison Brie) become a thing. At the end of the show, they both go their separate ways but, perhaps, Community: The Movie will bring them back together and give them the happy ending that they deserve and fans so long for.
There’s no sign of Chevy Chase, who starred in the first four seasons but left after frequent conflicts with Harmon following a Season 5 cameo, Donald Glover, who starred in the first five seasons, and Yvette Nicole Brown, who also starred in the first five seasons, are also not returning, but that’s not a surprise given their exits.
Harmon and Andrew Guest will write and exec produce while McHale, Russ Krasnoff and Gary Foster will executive produce the movie. Peacock is also acquiring the full series library on a non-exclusive basis.
Community: The Movie Coming soon to Peacock.
