One of the stars of “Community” — which already cheated death once, when NBC canceled it only to have the show revived by Yahoo Screen for season six — had some encouraging words for fans of the show.
Variety reports that Joel McHale, appearing at the CBS upfront to pump up interest in his fall sitcom “The Great Indoors,” hinted that a “Community” movie is a possibility — and the key, to no one’s surprise, is money.
“I’m sure if somebody funds it, we would love to make a movie,” he said. “The way Dan [Harmon] has already described it — which I could not agree more with — is it can’t just be a two-hour episode. It has to have a real budget and it has to be probably pretty epic. We need money. Netflix has the money!”
Deadline notes that the Netflix reference was made in jest, and there are no current plans for a “Community” revival, either as a series or as a movie.
McHale also suggested reviving Yahoo Screen, the streaming service whose shutdown earlier this year cut short the latest “Community” revival.
