‘Community’ Social Leader Holding Out ‘a Little Hope’ Cancelled Show Will Be Revived

tumblr_static_community_s5_tu_200x200Social campaigns have kept NBC’s screwball comedy “Community” on-air in the past, but not this time. The Peacock Network has announced its 2014-2015 schedule and “Community” isn’t on it.

“It’s a huge bummer…I’m obviously really disappointed and sad, for all the fans and for the wonderful people that have worked so hard for the last five years making this show that we love,” Gillian Morshedi tells Lost Remote. In 2012, we spotlighted Morshedi as she spearheaded a social and event campaign to save “Community” from being cancelled called “CommuniCon.”

“I still have a little hope that Sony can sell the show to another network or company, whether it’s Comedy Central or Netflix or Hulu or someplace else,” she tells us. “It really will be such a shame if this is truly the end.”

And some are taking to the Internet and social media to make sure it’s not the end.
