All You Need To Know About Yvette Nicole Brown’s Comments About the Community Movie
The “Community” ran for six seasons from 2009 to 2015, and on September 30, it was officially renewed for a movie that had been talked about for a long time. This made the show’s “six seasons and a movie” prediction come true.
The streamer has confirmed that all of the original cast members, like Joel McHale, Danny Pudi, Alison Brie, Gillian Jacobs, Jim Rash, and Ken Jeong, will be back to play their roles.
Fans of Community were happy to hear about the movie, but many couldn’t help but wonder: What about Yvette Nicole Brown, though? The actress who played Shirley on the show, who was sometimes sweet and sometimes tough, was missing from Peacock‘s press release.
Yvette Nicole Brown sounded upbeat about the future when she spoke with E! News exclusively on Sept. 27, just days before the movie was revealed.
“I’m 100 percent positive and hopeful there will be a Community movie,” Yvette said. “I could say that today, in the same way, I could have said it when we wrapped shooting however many years ago. It’s never been a desire issue. It’s always been a scheduling issue. I know that the conversations are happening.”
When Yvette said that she knew Dan Harmon was “drafting a script” for Community, she seemed to be on board.
“Every day it’s getting closer to coming to fruition,” she said. “Do I know when? I do not. Do I know whether everybody’s schedule is going to line up at the right time to make it happen at a time that’ll make everybody happy? I don’t know that, either. But I do know that everybody has a desire to take part, and that’s half the battle.”
The announcement notably omitted Donald Glover, who played Troy in Community’s first five seasons.
Only the cast members who were announced at this time have been confirmed, a source close to the production told E! News.
Yvette’s name was tagged in Joel McHale’s tweet regarding the major development, so perhaps there is still hope for one of our favorite human beings.
In the interim, watch Yvette in season two of Big Shot, which premieres on Disney+ on October 12th, in the interim.
