Even though COMMUNITY’s last-minute renewal has been an annual ritual since 2010, its cancellation on May 9th came as something of a shock to its legion of fans. However, according to an article on Deadline the doors of Greendale might yet reopen.
According to the report, talks are underway between COMMUNITY’s producer Sony and video streaming website Hulu to produce a further season of the show for online distribution. The talks are currently in the early stages with nothing yet set in stone, but both sides are optimistic about the mutual benefits of a potential deal.
Hulu already owns the digital rights to the show’s entire library of episodes, and so seems like a logical home for any further production. Also, a further season would put the show’s episode count past the 100 milestone, the tally usually preferred before a show goes into syndication.
The clarion call of #sixseasonsandamovie, an in-show reference initially applied to pseudo-comic book series THE CAPE (which, somewhat ironically, was cancelled after ten episodes for being completely crap) has become a mantra for fans’ belief in COMMUNITY’s potential longevity. Twitter becomes awash with the hashtag whenever the show is threatened with cancellation, and has been in evident more than ever during the last three weeks, showing the loyal and passionately vocal fanbase it possesses.
