Among many awards the show has won, it received a Primetime Emmy Award and Critic’s Choice Television Award for Best Comedy Series in 2012. The show followed a group of students at a community college and the shenanigans they got up to. Community was famous for being peppered with TV and pop culture references, absolutely out-of-the-box episodes, and for breaking the fourth wall again and again.
There has been a lot of talk about the show making its comeback on the big screen. First, it was Joel Mchale who joked about keeping all his money aside to make the reunion happen. He mentioned that if people had asked him the question a couple of years ago, he wouldn’t have been sure. But, the past couple of years pulled the sitcom back in the limelight, increasing the chances of a reunion. Brie confirmed Community movie talks are in progress. She revealed that there is a lot of behind-the-scenes conversation happening at the moment. She slyly commented that the people are talking about certain things and the wheels are turning.
