@abwhite13Community fans had their hearts broken earlier this month after NBC announced it would be canceling the little show that could. Now the cult comedy we thought was done “defying the odds” might just defy one more. Deadline has shared that Hulu is in preliminary talks with Community’s production studio, Sony TV, to bring the series back for a sixth season. Both sides are reportedly willing to work out a deal, but because the conversations are early nothing more is known. Series creator Dan Harmon is also on board, a change from his initial lukewarm response after news first broke regarding Community’s demise. On his blog Harmon wrote to fans, “I’m not going to be the guy that re-cancels cancelled Community.” Community was a modest ratings performer for NBC, but gained serious attention after a fan campaign was started to save the show back in season three. One of the most memorable efforts was the #sixseasonsandamovie hashtag, which ultimately became the show’s unofficial slogan and helped propel the show through two more seasons. NBC cut the series ideal run short though, and since then both the media and fans alike have been anxiously awaiting news of another network’s -- or platform’s -- interest in breathing life into the series one more time. While revivals are rare, Community and Sony TV have both made a business out of it. After surviving two years of near axing, showrunner and cast changes, Community managed to eek out five (mostly) raved about seasons. Sony is also known for fighting hard for its TV properties, managing deals to keep bubble series Rules of Engagement on the air and getting Unforgettable un-canceled over at CBS. It is also known for brokering Damages move from FX to DirectTV and bringing Lifetime’s Drop Dead Diva back from the grave. Time will tell if Community is to see another season, but just the idea of it seems pretty cool, cool, cool. Keep Up With PopWrapped On The Web!
