Joel McHale Is Still Praying at His Community Shrine

Yesterday, the zombie life of Community was dealt another blow when Hulu announced that it would not be resurrecting the show for a sixth season. At last night's Cinema Society party for the premiere of Deliver Us From Evil, Joel McHale told Vulture that he was a little surprised about the news, but still hopeful: "‪I don’t know how it’s going to come back, but they have a few days left before it does.‬" (The cast's contracts expire on June 30.) ‪"We’ll see. I guess we could do a regional-theater version.‬ ‪I have a shrine set up of Community DVDs. I have an Annie’s Boobs T-shirt that I’ve draped over it. Annie’s moves, excuse me. So who knows?‬"

As for where Community might find a home, McHale had a number of creative suggestions. "‪I mean, talk to Sony. I think we have an outside chance with Bedbathandbeyond.com, Staples.com, Duanereade.com, Healthcare.gov, and maybe Uber. Uber might broadcast it.‬" And what will he do if Uber falls through? "‪Well, you know, no one’s offered any jobs, and I assume you’re talking about like a Starz adult movie. No, I’m not going into porn, yet. I feel like I could still probably get a show before I would have to do soft-core stuff. Because I would never do penetration. Ever. I mean, I’m married. So, you know, no one’s made any offers, and if Community is really gone, then I’ll start having a lot of meetings about a lot of different stuff. Mostly about how to carve out a canoe. We went to the Natural History Museum and saw that enormous one from the Pacific Northwest tribe, and I just thought I’d like to know how to do that.‬"
