Is ‘Community’ on Netflix? Could Netflix Produce the Movie?

· Updated:

Community has its six seasons but could Netflix be its savior and provide it with its fabled movie? It’s certainly been hinted it as we’ll explore below plus where on Netflix you can stream the hit comedy plus why you can’t in some regions too. 

The NBC show which constantly had to fight for its future comes from Dan Harmon (who is coincidently looking for Rick and Morty to get another season) finally came to an end after Yahoo Screen (now defunct) gave it its final season. The community college comedy was groundbreaking for its time and fits in a long line of great comedy from NBC continued recently with The Good Place.

As you probably know by now, since Yahoo took the rights to the show and subsequently gave them to Hulu, Netflix doesn’t and most likely won’t be streaming the previous six seasons of Community in the United States.

Over in Canada, the show exists purely on Amazon Prime and in the United Kingdom, the rights are now with Channel 4. There’s zero chance that Netflix will likely get the rights to Community moving forward.

Is Netflix producing the Community movie?

Officially, Netflix is not producing a Community movie. With that said, when Joel McHale released a short bit for his Netflix show, it certainly was hinted at although quickly dismissed.

Of course, there’s scope for the cast to take time out of their other projects to work on a Community movie. Joel McHale now exclusively works on his Netflix show, The Joel McHale show. Alison Brie is working on GLOW and BoJack Horseman and Gillian Jacobs just wrapped up her final season of Love plus is working on a movie too. Jim Rash is also on team Netflix hosting the Stranger Things wrap up show that premiered along season 2.

The mention of Community happened again during season 2 of The Joel McHale Show where Gillian Jacobs appeared to promote Ibiza on Netflix. Once again, it was said in jest.

Other members of the cast aren’t working on Netflix projects with Danny Pudi just finished on his series Powerless and Yvette Brown finishing her role on The Odd Couple on CBS . Donald Glover has the most active schedule at the moment appearing in the latest Star Wars movie and Atlanta on FX. As for Chevy, who left fairly early on in the shows history is relatively unheard of today.

Community was on Netflix UK for a while

All of the NBC years for Community were streaming on Netflix in the United Kingdom. Sadly, when Yahoo began airing new episodes part of season 5, the rights were taken away from Netflix UK. The show has finally found a new home in the United Kingdom on All 4 and does include the Yahoo seasons.

According to Unogs, no Netflix region is currently streaming Netflix with the last set of regions losing the show back in March 2017.

So sadly, until we hear of a movie or a new series, Community is not on Netflix and is dead, at least for now. Would you like to see Netflix give Community another year? Let us know down below.
