Community fans ought to be used to this sort of thing by now. Hulu, one of the last remaining hopes for the canceled show, has reportedly ended its informal talks with Sony Pictures Television about a possible season six. The cult favorite has sidled its way out of tight spots before, somehow overcoming an indefinite mid-season hiatus, a previous cancellation, and the canning of creator and soul of the show, Dan Harmon. And although these precedents give fans some reason to continue hoping and tweeting their support, a doomsday clock is ticking down the days until June 30, when Community’s actors’ contracts come to an end. In these final hours, Hulu passing may be the death knell of all death knells—one that no amount of hopeful #sixseasonsandamovie tweets can overcome.
