Sony is in the “early planning stages” to make the movie portion of #SixSeasonsandaMovie a reality after renewing Community for a sixth season.

Yahoo made a big splash this past week by picking up Community for a sixth season. Now it sounds like they and Sony know fans have one more expectation in addition to season 6: A movie.

According to Hollywood Reporter, Sony Pictures Television (Sony has always owned Community, not NBC) president of programming Zack Van Amburg says that a Community movie following the sixth season is all but a done deal. After being asked a question about a seventh season, Van Amburg responds:

“Let’s see how our movie does! Isn’t that our plan? There’s no way we’re not making the movie now. I think once we make the movie, let’s look up and decide how much more Community the world wants. We promised six seasons and a movie, how much more do you want?… I’d be lying if I told you that we have not had some very early and preliminary conversations that are very exciting about what a potential movie could be and who might direct it.”

For as infrequently as TV execs admit to even “preliminary conversations,” this is a very good sign. Yahoo knows that they’ve inherited millions of rabid fans along with Community and seems to have a solid expectation that those fans expect “six seasons and a movie.”

It’s pretty remarkable how resilient this #SixSeasonsandaMovie meme has been. Community fans should all buy season one of The Cape on DVD in gratitude…if such DVDs even exist.

    It’s actually Sony who is planning the movie. They have specifically made it clear that the movie is not in conjunction with Yahoo just yet, as it may be released in Theatres, or other platforms later on.

    What doesn’t kill me gives me another season and a movie

    Only want them to do it if it’s going to be strong. Season 5 was majorly lackluster.

      Season 5 was fantastic. 2nd best season yet.

    I wonder if they will make it approachable to newcomers. I know people who watch tons of TV and have never heard of community.
