Alison Brie Suggests a Community Movie Might Be Happening: 'Stay Tuned'

Alison Brie teased that a Community movie could be happening during a Q&A session, suggesting that the show's "six seasons and a movie" catchphrase might come true.

In an Ask Me Anything Q&A session on Reddit, someone asked: "Hey Alison, any news about the Community movie?" Brie replied and said she "actually got an interesting call about it this week...stay tuned..."

This isn't the first time Brie has hinted about a Community movie, as back in 2015 she said she would be "more hopeful about a movie than a seventh season" and added, "one is more likely than the other, but I don't know if either will happen."

A season two episode of Community, titled "Paradigms of Human Memory," featured a joke about a failing TV show lasting six seasons and a movie, which became a catchphrase in the Community fanbase.

Fans believed that the TV series would run for six seasons and then make a movie, a plan that the show's creator, Dan Harmon, seems to be on board with.

In an interview with TV Line, Harmon said it is likely that the Community cast would reunite to make a movie rather than another season. Harmon said he thinks they will: "wait a little bit, let [the cast] explore their awesome careers, and then we get together for an incredible movie."

Harmon added that he would like the movie to be directed by Justin Lin, director of Fast and Furious 6 and Star Trek Beyond, and of three episodes of Community.

Community has had six seasons so far, with the first five airing on NBC and the sixth airing on Yahoo Screen, so a movie would be the final step in fulfilling the fan-made prophecy.

Since the show's last season aired in 2015, Brie has been working on Glow, a TV series about women wrestlers which first aired in 2017, and as the voice of Diane Nguyen in BoJack Horseman.

But perhaps Brie and Community's original cast members, including Joel McHale, Gillian Jacobs, Donald Glover, Danny Pudi, Chevy Chase, Ken Jeong, Yvette Nicole Brown, and Jim Rash, will make time to reunite on a movie.
