Peacock Community Movie: Will Yvette Nicole Brown Be In It?

Six seasons and a movie were made. The popular TV show Community, which ran for six seasons, will finally get a movie, Peacock announced on September 30. It was just a vague idea before that. 
Who would be in the Greendale Community College study group, the beloved group of oddballs at Greendale Community College, was still a bit of a mystery? 

Joel McHale, a member of the cast and the show’s executive producer, was the first to tweet the news. He tagged most of the original cast, including Donald Glover and Yvette Nicole Brown, who weren’t part of Peacock’s official announcement. (McHale also accidentally tagged Gillian Anderson instead of Gillian Jacobs, which was funny. Anderson replied on Twitter, “Who is Gillian Jacobs? I’m in, Joel McHale, “with a winking face emoji.) 

“‘Six seasons and a movie started as a joke in the early seasons of Community, but it quickly sparked a passionate fan movement for this iconic, funny, and cool (cool, cool) NBC comedy,” Susan Rovner, Chairman of Entertainment Content for NBCUniversal Television and Streaming, told Newsweek on September 30. 

“We’re so glad that 15 years later, we can give fans the promised movie, and we can’t wait to continue this epic comedy for Peacock audiences with Dan Harmon, Andrew Guest, Joel McHale, Sony, and our partners at UTV.” 

In the official press release, the names of the original cast members were all listed: McHale, Danny Pudi, Alison Brie, Gillian Jacobs, Jim Rash, and Ken Jeong. Donald Glover, who left the show after season 5, and Yvette Nicole Brown, who only appeared in two of the last 13 episodes of season 6, stood out. 

Brown quit the show to take care of her dementia-stricken father. Still, she takes care of her dad. “I only knew the hours for the community, so I couldn’t take good care of him,” she told Newsweek on September 22. 

In the same interview, she was asked about the possibility of a movie. Eight days before the movie was officially announced, she said, “I don’t know anyone from the show Community who wouldn’t jump at the chance to do a movie. This was true while we were still filming the show, and it’s still true now that we’re done. 

Harmon, who made the show, and Brie, who was in it, both told Newsweek in the past few weeks that the long-promised movie finally seemed like a real possibility. Harmon went even further and asked, “What if this were real? It has a plan already. A certain thing has been made and sold all over the world. That must mean it’s real. She said, “It’s always been hard to find a time that works for everyone, like Donald Glover, Joel, Alison, Danny, Jim Rash, Gillian, and Ken. All the people I just listed have way too much going on. Also, Paget Brewster and Keith David. How are you going to bring all of these famous, talented, award-winning people together? The problem has never been a lack of desire, but a lack of time. 

Brown has done a lot herself. She is the star of the second season of Disney’s Big Shot, and she will soon be in Disenchanted, the much-anticipated sequel to the 2007 movie Enchanted, which starred Amy Adams and Patrick Dempsey. 

A week before it was announced that there would be a Community movie, she said, “I know Dan didn’t lie.
