Take heart, Community fans — Dan Harmon isn’t giving up on the dream of #SixSeasonsAndAMovie. He’s just not sure when he’ll be able to make it come true. For starters, there’s the paradoxical problem of this cast being too popular: everyone in that cast has moved on to new shows and movies, so it’s unclear when they’d have time to make a Community movie even if they wanted to. Still, he says, “it’ll happen.” Get your latest Community movie update below. Read More »
If you’ve watched Community or Rick and Morty, or you listen to Harmontown, then you know that television creator, writer and producer Dan Harmon is a huge nerd. He loves sci-fi and fantasy and one of his many geeky vices is role-playing games. However, if you’re not a good friend of his, that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy his role playing adventures.
HarmonQuest is a new series coming to the online comedy streaming service Seeso that lets you watch Dan Harmon play Pathfinder with some of his comedian friends, including the likes of Paul F. Tompkins, Chelsea Peretti, Aubrey Plaza, Ron Funches and more. However, just so you’re not watching some comedians in a room playing Dungeons & Dragons, the show also animated the quests as they happen.

With television projects such as Community and Rick and Morty under his belt, you wouldn’t expect writer and executive producer Dan Harmon to be involved with a project like the Oscar-nominated, animated drama Anomalisa. But Harmon and his Starburns Industires production banner produced the film written and directed by Charlie Kaufman, and now he’s looking to do the same for Bubbles, an original script which topped the 2015 Black List and tells the story of Michael Jackson‘s life through the perspective of his pet chimpanzee named Bubbles.

When the second season of Rick and Morty came to an end last October, the longtime character Mr. Poopy Butthole said that we would see what happens to everyone’s favorite drunk scientist grandfather and perpetually nervous grandson in about a year and a half. That was in the beginning of October, so we’ve been operating under the assumption that the show wouldn’t return until March of 2017. However, according to Dan Harmon, it sounds like Rick and Morty season 3 will arrive before the end of 2016. Read More »
For the past month, we’ve been reporting on the progress of a Kickstarter campaign to bring back the cult favorite, movie-mocking TV series Mystery Science Theater 3000. Creator Joel Hodgson started an ambitious crowd-fund campaign to raise $5.5 million in order to produce 12 new episodes of the show with a whole new cast, and last night the campaign ended with even more good news than expected.
The Mystery Science Theater 3000 Kickstarter is now the largest crowd-funded online video of all-time, and the campaign made so much that they’ll actually be able to make 14 new episodes. It truly is a great time to be alive. Read More »
Today the Kickstarter for the revival of Mystery Science Theater 3000 crossed $4.4 million, guaranteeing that at least nine new episodes will be produced. Creator Joel Hodgson is hoping to reach $5.5 million in order to be able to make a full season of 12 episodes, but they only have two days left before the campaign ends this Friday. So get over to the page and donate!
If you need anymore convincing, today a crew of writers were announced, including Community creator and Rick and Morty co-creator Dan Harmon. And he’s not the only cool scribe on board. Read More »
We’re only three episodes into the second season of Rick and Morty, but Adult Swim has smartly moved to renew one of the best shows on TV. Rick and Morty is created by Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon, with Roiland also voicing both the young Morty and his genius, possibly insane, definitely alcoholic grandfather Rick.
Together they journey to alien planets, into dreams, through alternate dimensions, and into their own fears and insecurities. OK, that last part is meant to be kind of sarcastic, but it is actually true, and part of the reason this show is so good. Read More »
Back in June, we reported that the former NBC comedy series Community could end up getting another season at Yahoo after it was saved from cancellation and turned into a web series. However, it appears that possibility just went out the window.
Series star Joel McHale recently said in an interview that the profile of the cast members has grown significantly since the series premiered six years ago, and Yahoo simply can’t afford to pay the cast what they should be earning anymore. Find out more about why we’re seeing Community canceled again after the jump! Read More »
Cool Posts From Around the Web:
With robots, parallel universes, technology run dangerously rampant, and an excellent group of five characters to watch as things get weird, the first season of Rick and Morty was one of the best science fiction shows on TV. Created by Justin Roiland (who voices both lead characters) and Dan Harmon, the series is like a super-twisted version of Back to the Future in which Doc is drunk, cocky, and astonishingly brilliant, and Marty is a shy and cautious kid.
With all that established, I’m hoping the second season will be the best sci-fi show on TV, full stop. The first big Rick and Morty S2 trailer is here, and you can watch below to see how crazy things might get. Read More »
I joked a few days ago about how one of the only reasons people seem to watch The Simpsons lately is the occasional use of guest artists for a couch gag opening. And now Rick and Morty, the show created by Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon (which also happens to be one of the best, funniest, and sickest animated shows ever to air on television) has invaded The Simpsons and, yep, I love it.
This Rick and Morty Simpsons couch gag is somehow not even as messed up as some of the other wild couch gags by artists like Banksy and Don Hertzfeldt, but it is a spot-on combination of the two shows. Read More »
