Dan Harmon Returns To Community
He's back as the showrunner for Season Five

02 June 2013  |  Written by James White  |  Source: Dan Harmon

Community creator Dan Harmon is the new Doctor! All right, so he won’t be donning an Inspector Spacetime costume and stepping into the TARDIS to replace Matt Smith, but the better, actual news is that Harmon is returning to run his cult sitcom.

After being removed by production company Sony / quitting at the end of the third season of the show (delete according to preferred version of events), Harmon was replaced by Moses Port and David Guarascio, who struggled to find the right tone for the show and usually ended up creating a sort of faux Community that had many elements of the series that Harmon crafted, but none of its special charm or, frankly, weird magic.

Now, thanks apparently to the efforts of cast members including Joel McHale (who were apparently as dissatisfied by the quality of the scripts in the last year as their small but dedicated audience), Harmon will return to run Season Five of the show about the unlikely family at Greendale Community College. Can it turn the ship around and make Community into something those of us who love it will truly love again? Nobody – not even Dan –  knows that yet. And while it’s all but unprecedented for a show-runner forced out to return for a full season (or 13 episodes as the current order stands), it’s still good news in our books.
