It’s because the prophecy predicted: After six seasons, there will probably be a Group film.
As Peacock teases, “from the TV sequence that predicted its personal film, comes the least predictable film of a TV sequence that referenced plenty of films and TV.”
Present creator Dan Harmon, who went on to co-create Rick and Morty, will write the film for the streaming service, and star Joel McHale will tackle an government producer function.
“‘Six seasons and a film’ began out as a cheeky line from Group’s early seasons and shortly ignited a passionate fan motion for this iconic, hilarious and funky (cool, cool) NBC comedy,” mentioned NBCUniversal Tv and Streaming chairman Susan Rovner within the announcement.
She added, “We’re extremely grateful that 15 years later, we’re capable of ship followers this promised film and might’t wait to get to work with Dan Harmon, [executive producer] Andrew Visitor, Joel McHale, Sony and our companions at UTV to proceed this epic comedy for Peacock audiences.”
Unique stars McHale, Danny Pudi, Ken Jeong, Gillian Jacobs, Jim Rash and Alison Brie will return for the movie model.
Moreover, Peacock has snagged non-exclusive rights to air Group‘s library of episodes.
By the way, ABC Audio lately requested Brie if the “film” prophecy would come true, and she or he replied along with her poker face firmly intact. “I am hoping it is across the bend,” she commented.
“I haven’t got any new information, however I am crossing my fingers…That is all I acquired for at present,” Brie demurred.
Group debuted in 2009 on NBC and ran for 110 episodes. Whereas by no means a scores blockbuster, the Emmy-winning present developed a loyal fan base, which even spawned an unofficial fan-led conference referred to as CommuniCon.
