‘Community’ Stars Want Another Season & Movie; Ken Jeong Teases Cast Reunion

Community” was granted a sixth season, after being axed by NBC and resurrected by Yahoo, but could there be a seventh? If were up to Ken Jeong, season seven couldn’t come quicker.

“If they had a seventh season, I would be begging to be on it,” Jeong told Variety, as he was leaving a day of work on his upcoming ABC comedy “Dr. Ken,” in which he stars and serves as an exec producer.

“I will do anything ‘Community’ related. That show was so important to me and I’ve learned so much from Dan Harmon and my fellow castmates about television, and I’ve really become a better actor from that show,” he added. “I’m really setting my hopes on a movie. I really think the stars are aligned to do it. I honestly haven’t heard anything official for a seventh season or a movie, but I’d want to be a part of both. You bet your bottom dollar I’ll be asking. There’s always room for a little Chang in anything.”

Jeong also gave a nod to Yahoo, saying that season six was the best yet. “I can’t give Yahoo enough credit. That is the new age of television. NBC cancelled it and then Yahoo picks it up, and then we go to have the best year we’ve ever had since the early days of ‘Community.’ There is something to be said about Dan Harmon doing his thing on Yahoo and not being as restricted and can do episodes where he doesn’t have to clock in at 21 minutes.”

So will Jeong actually get his wish with another season on Yahoo?

Sources tell Variety that a seventh season of “Community” is unlikely, as all contracts would have to be renegotiated. Insiders say there are no discussions currently occurring between Yahoo and Sony. However, while there are no active talks at this time, the idea of a movie is still on the table given the heat around the “six seasons and a movie” fandom.

At the time of the sixth season finale, a Yahoo spokesperson teased fans, releasing this statement: “With the season six finale of ‘Community’ airing today, we’re continually excited by how much fans are engaging with the series. Now that all episodes are available for binge viewing, stay tuned for how we keep ‘Community’ delighting its fans.”

Jeong notes that his cast members — especially Joel McHale — also want more “Community,” even though most of them are busy with other work nowadays.

“We’re all doing our own projects now. I look at our ‘Community’ universe as expanded. We haven’t broken up. We are the Duran Duran of comedy. We split up, but we’ll always be together,” Jeong says, mentioning McHale.

“Joel, he’s the ring leader. He wants to do ‘Community’ more than anything else,” he confirms. “I was just with him at the ESPYs last week, and all we did was talk about ‘Community.’ We’re like, ‘How do we get this thing going?’ We’re always talking. We’re all in touch all the time.”

Whether or not seven seasons and a movie happens, a potential “Community” reunion is already in the works.

“I’ll be trying to beg those guys to get in some ‘Dr. Ken’ action as well,” Jeong says, teasing guest spots in his upcoming fall series. “We’ve already been thinking of that. That’s been a conversation from day one.”
