Community star Joel McHale has spilled the beans about whether or not the series will return for a seventh season.
The star confirmed to Metro Weekly that the show wouldn’t be coming back for a seventh season, citing the reason as mainly financial.
“All of our contracts were up after six years,” he said. “All the actors on the show, almost without exception — their stock has risen significantly and it’s out of the pay rate that is affordable to make the show. So you’re not going to be able to get Alison Brie or Gillian Jacobs at a normal television salary anymore. There is just not enough money to be able to pay for the show.”
The show’s creator and showrunner, Dan Harmon, previously told The Hollywood Reporter that a movie was a possible option, as opposed to a seventh season.
“I think there’s a higher chance of a movie than a seventh season,” he said. “I think it has to do with talent contracts. We’ve got a lot of very talented people whose contracts have run out, and they get to explore the world and see what comes of it.
Sony has yet to comment on McHale’s statement.
