Chances are, if you don't know David Cross and you meet him on the street, the first words out of his mouth will be, "What Arrested Development questions can I not answer for you?" For years now, the comedian has been plagued by a barrage of fan inquires and rumors about an Arrested Development movie, a fate that awaits any cult TV show that is quote-unquote "Cancelled too soon."
It's a fate that certainly awaits Community. The cult favorite NBC sitcom returns tonight for the rest of it's Season 3 run. And then its future is unknown. Comedy Central has picked the series up in syndication, with all three seasons airing back-to-back in 2013, and if NBC doesn't grant a forth season, it's quite possible that the show will continue to live on in basic cable. That, though, is an uncertainty.
What is certain is that fans want a movie. The running joke with Community is that there will be 'Six Seasons and a Movie.' That will happen if creator Dan Harmon has his way. And he even has plans for this so-called Community movie, which ties directly into the first episode of Season 4, if there is a season 4.
When the Greendale 7 return to campus next year, they will briefly mention their summer in passing during the first moments of their first episode back. It will be 'The Summer we shall never speak of!' A flashback to that summer will be the movie.
Community returns to NBC tonight, March 15th, at 8/7 central.
