“‘Six seasons and a movie’ started out as a cheeky line from Community‘s early seasons and quickly ignited a passionate fan movement for this iconic, hilarious and cool (cool, cool) NBC comedy,” NBC Universal Television’s Chairman of Entertainment Susan Rovner said in a statement.

“We’re incredibly grateful that 15 years later, we are able to deliver fans this promised movie and can’t wait to get to work with Dan Harmon, Andrew Guest, Joel McHale, Sony and our partners at UTV to continue this epic comedy for Peacock audiences.”

“Community was light years ahead of its time when it premiered on NBC in 2009 and we are thrilled to once again visit the brilliant minds of Dan Harmon, Andrew Guest and this impeccable cast,” said Sony co-president Jason Clodfelter.

“We are grateful to Peacock, our partners at UTV and to all the zealous fans who have cherished this iconic show.”

Peacock initially aired on NBC before being canceled after five seasons.

The series then moved to Yahoo TV (RIP!) for one last season.

There has been a drive from fans to get six seasons and a movie for years, and now, that will be fulfilled when the flick hits Peacock.
