One of pop cultures’ most famous people behind the cameras includes the Russo brothers amongst a very selected few.
Joe Russo, one of the bros, claims that Netflix could be the streaming service to make the series Community‘s dream come true. In this case, the dream is to get to six seasons plus a movie. The show boasted five years with NBC (2009 to 2014) before transferring to Yahoo! Screen for the series’ final season after clamoring from the fans to give them their well-deserved return. Whatever it was, the series managed to push through despite the challenges it faced.
The story of the comedy TV series was based on the experiences of Dan Harmon, co-creator of Rick and Morty, in his own community college growing up. The Russo brothers were also involved in the series as producers and directors of many episodes before having to leave to spearhead what was Captain America: The Winter Soldier but quickly came back for the series’ fifth and sixth seasons.
Community is a pretty straight-up, easily-digestible show that has this specific comedy to it that the fans just love, I included. With a lot of pop culture references and a star-studded cast, this might just be a comedy to put up there. Joel McHale played Jeff Winger, a disbarred lawyer who comes to Greendale Community College in the hopes of getting his bachelor’s degree. He then forms a seven-person study group featuring Britta (Gillian Jacobs), Abed (Danny Pudi), Shirley (Yvette Nicole Brown), Annie (Alison Brie), Troy (Donald Glover), and Pierce (Chevy Chase). The series chronicled the antics of the group at Greendale Community College.
Collider reported Joe Russo stated: “We’d certainly be willing to do it. We love our Community family. That cast, we’re all still very close to all of them. It’d certainly be schedule-depending for us. But I believe there will be a Community movie, especially now that it’s doing so well on streaming. Someone like Netflix could step up and make that movie.”
