  • Dan Harmon confirms that the
    Community
    movie script is near completion and set at Greendale Community College.
  • Most original cast members, including Donald Glover, are expected to return for the movie.
  • The script hints at a college reunion and Abed as a director, but no release date is confirmed.



Creator Dan Harmon sheds light on the script of the highly anticipated Community movie. Originally premiering in 2009 on NBC, the sitcom follows a dysfunctional study group at the fictional Greendale Community College. Several years after the conclusion of season 6, Sony TV and Peacock confirmed that a feature-length movie was in the works.

Now, Dan Harmon reveals to Variety that the script for the Community movie is now near completion. He clarifies that star Donald Glover’s comments about the Community script being complete are not fully accurate. He also adds that the movie would once again be set on the campus of Greendale Community College. Read his full comments below:

I can confirm Donald Glover’s report that I told him the script was done, but I will also say Donald’s sources are so unreliable because the script is always ‘almost done.’ What can I tell you about it — it’s set on the campus of Greendale Community College. I’m super excited about it, and we’re almost done.



Following Community‘s final season on the now-dissolved Yahoo Screen in 2015, viewers of the comedy hoped that the proposed movie would come sooner rather than later. However, the movie looked more unlikely as years passed. However, in 2022 when star Joel McHale announced on his Twitter page that the long-awaited movie was finally happening.

Glover, in a recent interview, however, shared that the movie would be a college reunion of some sort and Abed is a director now.


Following this announcement, viewers began to speculate which characters would be returning for the movie. After doubts about actors reprising their roles, Ken Jeong in an interview confirmed that most of the original Community cast members would be returning for the movie. Glover, McHale, Yvette Nicole Brown, Danny Pudi, Alison Brie, and Gillian Jacobs, are expected to return for the movie.
