School’s out for Greendale! – No more Community!

It was the show that divided a network to the point of cancellation. Then it rose from the dead for a 6th season on Yahoo, but now it looks like all hopes of a 7th season are in vein according to Jeff Winger himself – Joel McHale; speaking to Metro Weekly he confirmed what we already long suspected: The most recent season of Community was its last.

McHale says that while Yahoo wanted another season, it couldn’t afford the actors. “All of our contracts were up after six years. All the actors on the show, almost without exception — their stock has risen significantly and it’s out of the pay rate that is affordable to make the show. So you’re not going to be able to get Alison Brie or Gillian Jacobs at a normal television salary anymore. There is just not enough money to be able to pay for the show.”

The dreams of #sixseasonsandamovie are still alive though!

“I really do think there’ll be a movie,” McHale told Esquire a few weeks earlier. “What has to happen is that Dan [Harmon] needs to write the script. It’s a tall order for someone. ‘Go write a brilliant movie script on a beloved show that you’ve been writing for six years. Go! Just go ahead and do that!’ I don’t think that is something that’s like, ‘Let me just have a long weekend.’ The cast would do it. We would all do it.” Harmon, who’s currently co-running Rick and Morty, told EW that he couldn’t think about a script until he “miss[ed]” the show.
