There's talk that Hulu will host a sixth season of Community.  The show never rated well in its five years at NBC, but it's got one of the most rabid fan bases in the world, and was among the highest-rated show of Hulu's rebroadcasts.

There are stumbling blocks.  Number one is Dan Harmon.  They've already tried it without him and no one wants to do that again.  But lately the show's creator, who at first said NBC or nothing, seems to be coming around.

Then there's the question of who will return. The show has already lost Chevy Chase and Donald Glover, but the rest who stuck around seem game.  I don't know what the budget would be for a thing like this, or how many episodes (or when they'd be available), but that might affect a lot of things.  And who knows, maybe Glover of Chase would show up for an episode or two.

So I guess this is cause for a celebration, though there are still hoops to jump through. I'm more worried about the potential quality that whether it'll happen or not.  The fifth season, when Harmon came back, was a return to form, but it still didn't match the first three seasons.

Above all, we need a sixth season so they can go on to do a movie.
