Joel McHale on Dan Harmon’s Community Return: ‘The Sky’s The Limit’
With the big news that Dan Harmon is making an epic return to Community's fifth season, how is the cast feeling about the showrunner's return.
Joel McHale spoke to Entertainment Weekly while he was promoting his new Klondike Celebrity Challenge, and he seemed very excited to get back to work. "With Dan Harmon back, it is really the sky’s the limit," Joel said. "I don’t know what to expect. I mean, I know what to expect with Dan in that I know the scripts are gonna be dynamite and they will be absolutely unique and original, but I really don’t know what they have come up with."
The actor said he "trusts Dan's creativity implicitly" and joked that the Community gang should start the fifth season on a space-station and have to explain how they all got there. That sounds like a creative challenge!
And what does Joel think about Harmon’s recent comments about his unpleasant experience of watching season 4?
Joel made a point to say that Harmon had apologized and that it’s all really water under the bridge now. "[Dan] has said in his interviews [that] he wants to write the hell out of this season, so that’s what I focus on and am very thrilled about," Joel said. "So yeah, that’s kind of how I see it. I mean Dan has said stuff before during his podcasts so…. You know, I think finally once we premiere, [then] I think people will care about the episodes more than anything."
