Dan Harmon in Talks to Return to Community
Sony Pictures Television, which produces the NBC comedy, is in talks to have Harmon to return to the show in some capacity, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Emails to NBC and Sony were not immediately returned.
Harmon accidentally broke the news during a Sunday taping of his Harmontown podcast, according to a Hollywookie staffer who was in attendance. As soon as Harmon realized what he said, he asked that it be edited out of the podcast, but then shrugged, "Ahh, f--- it. I don't care who knows!"
After the creator was fired last spring, he turned down the position of consulting producer. It's unclear whether he was once again offered this position or if he's been asked to replace David Guarascio and Moses Port as showrunner.
Community finished its fourth season with 3 million viewers and a 1.3 rating in the 18-to-49 demographic, tied with Season 3's Harmon-helmed finale. Though Community's ratings remained largely stable in Season 4, many criticized the season for losing its spark without Harmon.
Season 5 of the cult comedy is expected to premiere midseason. Do you think Harmon could help get Community back on track?
