They at all times promised the present would have six seasons and a film. And darn it, they will do it.
Peacock introduced right now that Neighborhood is lastly getting the film that it at all times vowed to followers was going to occur. The press launch confirms “unique stars Joel McHale, Danny Pudi, Alison Brie, Gillian Jacobs, Jim Rash and Ken Jeong will reunite” for the venture, and that “the film will come from unique sequence creator Dan Harmon, government producer Andrew Visitor, and from studios Sony Photos Tv and Common Tv, a division of Common Studio Group.”
Right here was NBCUniversal’s Susan Rovner’’ assertion on the information:
Six seasons and a film’ began out as a cheeky line from Neighborhood’s early seasons and shortly ignited a passionate fan motion for this iconic, hilarious and funky (cool, cool) NBC comedy. We’re extremely grateful that 15 years later, we’re in a position to ship followers this promised film and might’t wait to get to work with Dan Harmon, Andrew Visitor, Joel McHale, Sony and our companions at UTV to proceed this epic comedy for Peacock audiences.
Whereas many of the present’s core solid of lovable misfits at a Colorado neighborhood school are again for the movie, a number of Neighborhood solid members should not talked about within the press launch. Neither Donald Glover nor Yvette Nicole Brown have been introduced as a part of the ensemble; each have been common solid members on the sequence’ first 5 seasons on NBC, though neither returned (at the very least as full-time characters) throughout Neighborhood’s last episodes, which debuted on the short-lived streaming service Yahoo! Display. (Chevy Chase appeared on the present’s first 4 season, however his character was killed off after Chase used a racial slur on set, upsetting members of the crew and solid.)
Though by no means a prime draw within the scores, Neighborhood was a perennial important favourite throughout its run on NBC from 2009 to 2014, and it proved to be a significant breakthrough for a number of members of the solid, who went on to even larger movie and TV initiatives. It was additionally a launching pad for a few of its behind the scenes expertise as properly. (Supposedly, the Russo brothers received the job directing Captain America: The Winter Soldier on the power of their work on Neighborhood.)
No launch date for the film has been introduced thus far, however as a part of the deal, Peacock may even get the rights to stream the six seasons of Neighborhood. That’s going to make one heck of a marathon some day.
