Joel McHale Shares Positive Update on Long-Gestating Community Movie

Fans hoping for Community movie updates get encouraging news from star Joel McHale as the titular sitcom’s star reveals potential shooting and release windows for the upcoming film.

Speaking to Screen Rant, McHale revealed the progress of the Community film following the end of the WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes which suspended production. According to McHale, who starred as ex-lawyer Jeff Winger in the eponymous NBC series, all signs point towards a summer 2024 start for principal photography. “I think it’ll be next summer, and I might be talking out of my a–, but that seems like enough lead time to get everybody together,” he said .”I have to finish Animal Control, which I am very excited to return to. So, that all said, I think it’ll be next summer, hopefully, with probably a holiday release is my guess? Yeah, it’s a quick turnaround, but I believe that it can happen.”

The Community movie has long been promised as the award-winning sitcom tries to live up to its tagline of “six seasons and a movie” after the show’s run came to an end in 2015. The series saw McHale star alongside Donald Glover, Danny Pudi, Alison Brie, Gillian Jacobs, Ken Jeong, Yvette Nicole Brown and Chevy Chase. With most of the cast set to return for the Community film, McHale expressed gratitude about getting the gang back together, though he’s keeping details about the movie quiet. “Trying to get everybody together the first time was hard, and Donald’s turned into — I don’t know if you know this, but his career’s gone okay. So, just getting everybody back together, I mean, everybody in the cast is working, thank God,” he said. “I’m very happy it’s the end, and Andrew Guest is writing it, as well.” Guest wrote six episodes of Community between 2009 and 2011.

McHale’s update comes after Community franchise creator Dan Harmon revealed the movie was almost ready to begin shooting before the WGA strike in May as its script was ready. Harmon also expressed fears the film would fall apart amid the strikes, given it could drastically shift the schedules of all the actors involved, preventing them from being able to participate. Harmon serves as a producer on the movie and has recently been promoting Rick and Morty Season 7.

While McHale, Glover, Pudi and Brie have all been confirmed to return for the Community movie, Chase passed on the opportunity, recently expressing his disdain for the show, his character Pierce Hawthorne and its humor. McHale and Brown hit back at their former colleague, who left on bad terms during Season 4 of the sitcom amid accusations of inappropriate on-set behavior and growing tensions with his co-stars.

Development of the Community movie was originally confirmed in 2014 ahead of the sixth and final season of the sitcom, though it stalled for years. Harmon confirmed in 2021 that he was writing the script for the film, which was ordered by Peacock in September of last year. The Russo brothers, Anthony and Joe, serve as executive producers.

Ahead of the Community movie, fans can stream the series via Prime Video, Apple TV and YouTube.
