Despite the reported collapse of the Hulu deal to save Community, Joel McHale says he’s “hopeful” for a sixth season and confirms that he would return if the show was to find a new home.
The actor told Zap2It:
“I’m hopeful that it’s going to come back on the internet. I mean, that’s what the rumor is. I haven’t heard anything yet but if it happens, I’m happy to do it because I think it should get a sixth season, at least.
It’s so hard to get anything on the air and have it stay on the air, as it is in TV. The outcry from the fans and the critics was so wonderfully loud that I think that’s part of the reason it is where it is right now.”
On the possibility of Community continuing in an online environment, he said:
“Dan Harmon writing unencumbered, writing on the internet is going to be pretty great. Let the fireworks begin.”
