dan harmon paley 2012 gi 'Community' creator Dan Harmon asked to return for Season 5Be still our hearts! “Community” creator Dan Harmon, who was ousted last season in a controversial move by Sony and NBC, has been asked to return to the series as showrunner in Season 5.

According to reports, during a taping of his Harmontown podcast, Harmon confirmed that he had been asked to return — but he asked that the news be cut out of the final podcast. Then, apparently, he said “Ah, f*** it. I don’t care who knows!” and joked that he’d only return if mercurial cast member Chevy Chase also returned.

As far as we know, a showrunner being fired from his own creation and then later asked to return has never happened before. However, it became quite obvious during Season 4 that despite his often odd behavior, Harmon was the heart and soul of the show.

Chase, however, will not be returning.
