After Community creator Dan Harmon was fired from his own show due to that old chestnut known as “creative differences,” fans have been apprehensive that their beloved comedy may start to suck now that its chief creative force is no longer driving the show.
New exec producers Moses Port and David Guarascio were on hand at San Diego’s Comic-Con this morning to try to put fan fears to rest during a Community panel discussion.
According to TVline.com, Guarascio told the crowd, “It’s all gonna be OK. A couple months ago we were a lot like most of you, just huge fans of the show . . . suddenly now we’re here, helping to keep it going. The only thing we care about is keeping it this weird, wonderful gem . . . and that’s not going to change.”
Added Port: “It’s also not us coming in and taking it on by ourselves. It’s the best cast on television . . . what I mean to say is, we won’t screw it up. We promise.”
The duo revealed a few spoilers about the upcoming season. “We’re going to get to see Pierce’s mansion [and] the twisted world in which he lives,” said Guarascio. “We are also going to get to go to an Inspector Spacetime convention . . . everyone is going to go!”
Community will return for an abbreviated 13-episode fourth season in a new Friday-night timeslot in October.
