'Community' will leave Netflix in March

Fans of the beloved sitcom Community might be disappointed to discover that the show is leaving Netflix in March. 

The popular show, which stars Alison Brie, Donald Glover, Chevy Chase, Danny Pudi, Joel McHale, Ken Jeong, and many more, first aired in 2009 before making its way to Netflix in 2020.

For four years, the show has been discovered by countless new audiences, as well as rewatched by old-time fans on the streaming service.

However, the good news is that a spin-off movie will begin filming in the summer, with almost all of the main cast returning to play their roles. The film has already been written by the show’s creator, Dan Harmon, who teamed up with Andrew Guest.

It was commissioned by the streaming service Peacock back in 2022, although the Hollywood strikes that defined much of 2023 led to its delay in production.

Reflecting on the show, Harmon once told The Guardian, “I knew it was a different idea for a pilot even before I wrote it.” In the same interview, McHale revealed his initial reactions to the show.

He explained, “The pilot was really funny. The structure and the way the characters were introduced were so well painted – that alone lets you know the person writing it knows what they’re doing.” 

Netflix users have until March 31st to stream the six critically acclaimed seasons of Community. Otherwise, fans will have to seek it out elsewhere, such as on Hulu.
