In his Tumblr, he said that he was just responding to "tweets from anxious sounding fans". It was only last week when NBC announced the cancellation of Community after five long series. Harmon went on post that he got nothing against another network taking over the show, but people can’t take the feeling of disagreement towards the idea.
Community is about a group of adult students at Greendale Community College, which stars Chevy Chase, Ken Jeong and Donald Glover. It got nominated for a number of awards and has already won an Emmy for its animation.
There have been reports that Sony, the primary producer of the show was planning to sign in with another broadcaster with the likes of Netflix or Comedy Central. Aside from that, people have been accusing Harmon of standing in the way of another network taking on the series, which he rejected in his Tumblr post and adds that he don’t have the power to make such kind of decision.
"I will confess, however, that when Sony called me on Friday with the news, there was brief discussion at the end of the call about the concept of the show living elsewhere, and I was definitely in the 'eh' column," he wrote.
Harmon added that fans have proven how much they like the show.
"I know fandom, when it gets this deep for this long, becomes almost religious, including the urge to stone the less than faithful. But there are lots of reasons a Community resurrection could be difficult," he said.
The writer also recommended other shows fans should fill in the gap left the TV show. There are other shows that are as good as “Community and he recommend watching them too.
Harmon worked on series one to three of Community, prior to getting sacked before the start of season four. It is said that he got a feud with Chevy Chase. There are messages that were published online.
In one message the actor is heard saying Community was a "mediocre sitcom" and accusing Harmon of not understanding "what it is I do that's funny". On the fifth series, Harmon returned back and Chase stood down as one of the main casts for the show, instead he becomes a guest star.
"Let the suits deal with the suits and see what possibilities exist," Harmon said in his post about the show's cancellation.
"That's the best we can do for now. Ninety seven episodes. Over eighty pretty good ones. Mission accomplished."
