– During a recent edition of Six Season and a Podcast, Community creator Dan Harmon shared some details about the upcoming Community movie that’s in the works for Peacock. Below are some highlights (via

Harmon on what he can rule out for the film: “It’s a lot easier for me to rule stuff out than tell you what we’re pursuing. For instance, we go, ‘Do we really think it’d be a good idea to be a paintball episode?’ It’s one of the first things to rule out because it’s the first thing off the top of your head, and that’s an issue with the Community movie concept. We did a lot of episodes where you are joyfully locked into a construct that isn’t a traditional sitcom narrative but is rather through the lens of David Fincher or Martin Scorsese. There were a lot of special episodes that were kind of like genre homages. The paintball thing was one of them. We tried to do a bunch more paintballs, and they were all perfectly wonderful things to do, but would anything ever capture the joy of the original paintball episode?”

On how he can also rule out Dungeons & Dragons for the film: “Or we’d play Dungeons & Dragons for 90 minutes. I kinda gotta rule that out — maybe a better writer wouldn’t.”

Original show stars Joel McHale, Danny Pudi, Alison Brie, Gillian Jacobs, Jim Rash, and Ken Jeong are all slated to return for the show. Creator Dan Harmon and executive producer Andrew Guest are also working on it. The show is being produced by Sony Pictures TV for Peacock. Details on the plot are not yet unknown, and if original cast members Chevy Chase, Donald Glover, and Yvette Nicole Brown will be appearing in the film.
