Dan Harmon confirms that he’s been asked back to executive produce ‘Community’

Ever since NBC renewed Community for a fifth season, there’s been a rumor floating around that the show’s creator and ousted executive producer Dan Harmon may be asked back. Well, it seems Harmon confirmed that he was, indeed, asked to return during a live taping of his podcast Harmontown.

Hollywookie.com is reporting the following:

Dan Harmon just told the audience of his podcast Harmontown that he has been asked to return to Community! As soon as Dan said it, he asked that it be edited out of the podcast and it was just for us audience members (and I wasn’t going to say a word) but soon after that Dan said “Ahhh Fuck it. I don’t care who knows!” He jokingly said that he would only return if they brought Chevy Chase back too but even he couldn’t stop laughing at that idea.

David Guarascio and Moses Port were the showrunners of Community’s fourth season.
