Inside the Last-Minute Scramble to Save Community

"Six seasons and a movie" almost didn't happen. As June drew to a close, time was running out to save Community, which NBC had canceled in May. Talks to move the comedy to streaming service Hulu were falling apart, the deal options to keep the show's cast intact expired at the end of the month, and much of the crew and key writers had already moved on to new jobs.

Emmy Watch: Canceled Shows Still Have Their Eye on the Prize

With executive producers Dan Harmon and Chris McKenna back at the helm, critics and fans agreed that Community regained its mojo this past season.

Community's Alison Brie Teases "Epic" Farewell to Troy

Even though we knew it was coming, last week's Community dropped a major bomb on viewers: Troy (Donald Glover) was leaving Greendale to sail Pierce's boat around the world in order to get millions of dollars (and become a man, or whatever).
