Community, Dan Harmon's comedy that refuses to die, was picked up for a sixth season of 13 episodes by Yahoo today. It was a last-minute save: the cast's contracts with Sony, which produces the series, were set to expire today.

Community Canceled After Five Seasons and No Movie

Much like Abed Nadir's favorite superhero show, The Cape, NBC's Community lasted a lot longer than anyone expected. Community survived having Chevy Chase as a main cast member and Dan Harmon as its showrunner, and then it survived with no Dan Harmon and no Chevy Chase. And then Harmon again.

Chevy Chase Is Leaving Community, Effective Immediately

After three and a half years, Chevy Chase is done at Community. The agreement to part ways was apparently mutual and will take place immediately. Chase's departure won't have much of an impact on the critically-acclaimed show's fourth season - all but two of the season's episodes had already been filmed – but it will likely have a positive impact on the sitcom's morale.

News just broke that Sony has not extended the contract of Community showrunner Dan Harmon. Instead of signing him for two years at the end of season 2, as is customary, Harmon and Sony agreed to a one year deal and now that Community has been renewed, Harmon is out.

"When you become famous, you've got like a year or two where you act like a real asshole," Bill Murray told Tom Shales and James Miller when they interviewed him for Live from New York, their oral history of Saturday Night Live. "You can't help yourself. It happens to everybody. You've got like two years to pull it together — or it's permanent." He was talking, of course, about Chevy Chase, his opponent in a famous backstage fistfight. The two are friendly now, and it seems as though Murray wanted to imply that Chase had "pulled himself together" following his sudden rise to fame.

Just Fire Chevy Chase

I have no trouble picking a side in the feud between Dan Harmon and Chevy Chase. (Team Harmon, in case that wasn't immediately clear.) But inevitably, it doesn't matter: Chase did some things, Harmon said some things, Chase said some things back. Maybe they're both at fault, in which case I should probably be writing a more measured analysis of their beef.
