Peacock bringing the highly-requested film of comedy series 'Community'

Peacock has ordered a much-requested movie of NBC comedy feature Community and has attained non-exclusive rights to the full six-season.

On September 30, it was announced that the Dan Brown-directed series has received a full-length closure film order from Peacock.

Sony Pictures TV and Peacock jointly made the announcement and said that the negotiations about the movie were "heavily competitive."

The movie will bring back original stars Joel McHale, Danny Pudi, Alison Brie, Gillian Jacobs, Jim Rash and Ken Jeong. 

According to Variety, Jason Clodfelter, Co-President, Sony Pictures Television Studios, said, "Community was light years ahead of its time when it premiered on NBC in 2009 and we are thrilled to once again visit the brilliant minds of Dan Harmon, Andrew Guest and this impeccable cast."

He added, "We are grateful to Peacock, our partners at UTV, and to all the zealous fans who have cherished this iconic show."

The fan-favourite comedy series ran for more than a hundred episodes between 2009 and 2015. Details like the movie director and release date have not been released as of yet.
