Community remains locked in the throes of cancellation.
In an update on the comedy’s status, creator Dan Harmon admits that the departure of Yahoo chief marketing officer Kathy Savitt has left the show’s slim Season 7 hopes looking “bleak”.
He told THR:
That changing is a little bit of a dent in the optimism — I’m trying to find out a way [to say it]. That makes it look a little more bleak just because before she was gone, she was the person that anyone could pick up the phone and say, ‘Let’s make this Community thing happen,’ whatever it was, and she’s the reason it would get done.
And again, I say half-joking and half-sincerely, maybe that’s why she’s gone because she believed in the show and loved it so much,” he continues.
