Ever since Community dropped on Netflix on April 1, fans haven’t been able to get enough of the series.

The cast recently united for a table read of Season 5’s episode “Cooperative Polygraphy” and a Q&A to reminisce about the show. During the reunion, creator Dan Harmon hinted at the second half of the show’s “Six Seasons and a Movie.”

Donald Glover said, “we can’t make movies right now” but that he’s up to do one in the future with his co-stars, who also expressed a desire to work on a movie.

In previous interviews, star Joel McHale suggested that Glover might be too busy to join because of his TV career with Atlanta and his music career as Childish Gambino.

Creator Dan Harmon spoke about how he has much more appreciation for the show now that time has passed since the last episode which aired in 2015. “When I watch the episodes now, I have these waves come over me of like, first of all, my writers were amazing and probably didn’t get rewarded for it as much as maybe I thought the job was, but second… the whole cast is just like a machine on a basketball court that automatically slam dunks everything that you put onto the court.”

The cast also talked about moments like when Jack Black guest-starred and when they first heard Donald Glover’s mix tape as well as what their characters would be up to during the pandemic.
