It could have been their last word to us.
When they wrote the episode, they had no idea if they were coming back for a 4th season. They didn’t know if Community would live past these credits. So what did they do? Theygave a nod to us.
#Sixseasonsandamovie started as a joke, a plead from the fans. It grew. It morphed this fanbase into something TV networks had never seen before. Suddenly, NBC had more than just ratings to worry about. It had to deal with the 2+ million angry fans calling in when Community came off the air for 5 weeks.
We petitioned. We flash mobbed. We got this show a 4th season. And were privileged enough to see this amazing, mind blowing 1 and a half hours of tv magic. The writers knew it was special, so the writers ended it with what made it special: the fans.
So just as they gave a nod to us, we give one back. We will always be the human beings, and we will never forget to hashtag #sixseasonsandamovie :)
