Community fans rejoice because “six seasons and a movie” is finally becoming something more than a cheeky joke. Peacock will take us back to Greendale in Community: The Movie and most of the original cast members are coming back for another ride.

Ever since Community premiered on NBC in 2009, “six seasons and a movie” became one of the show’s most popular running jokes. After NBC’s cancelation, Yahoo! Screen brought back the show for Season 6, and Peacock is now giving us a long-awaited movie about a group of unlikely friends attending the fictional Greendale community college.

Dan Harmon and Andrew Harmon are coming on board as the film’s writers and executive producers, while the project is being developed by Sony Pictures Television and Universal Television.

“Community was light years ahead of its time when it premiered on NBC in 2009 and we are thrilled to once again visit the brilliant minds of Dan Harmon, Andrew Guest, and this impeccable cast,” said Sony Pictures Television Studios’ co-president Jason Clodfelter.

As for the movie’s cast, Joel McHale, Danny Pudi, Alison Brie, Gillian Jacobs, Jim Rash, and Ken Jeong confirmed their comeback. Chevy Chase, Donald Glover, and Yvette Nicole Brown, who left the show before its final season, most likely won’t be involved.
