First reported last month from the horses mouth, now Joel McHale has confirmed the cancellation of Community after six seasons.
Speaking to Metro Weekly, McHale acknowledged that Yahoo will not be able to afford a seventh season of the comedy series, given the cost of bringing the gang back together:
No. They wanted to. But 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.
