I was incredibly, incredibly depressed to see that one of my all-time favorite sitcoms, Community, coming to a close after a truncated fifth season on NBC. Words cannot express how much I love the creativity and spirit of this series (not to mention its sheer humor factor or how much it loves geeky everything), and I didn’t want to see it end. It’s been like the best college movie of all time in a TV format.
So we Community fans went from the depths of sadness to the heights of ecstacy when the show got a surprise 11th hour pickup from — of all things — Yahoo! Screen for a sixth season back in June. I don’t think I’ve ever cheered that loud while sitting in front of a computer monitor as I did that day, and I’m not ashamed to have done so.
Yeah, season 6 won’t be quite the same, with a different platform and fewer of its regular stars. But with the creative leads and many of the actors still on board, I’m excited to see where it goes for the next year of Greendale.
