After nearly five seasons on “Community,” Donald Glover — known in the world of music, of course, as Childish Gambino — starred in his final episode on the show this past January, with more than half of the fifth season still remaining. Though the fan-favorite half-hour comedy was canceled by NBC, it was later picked up by Yahoo! Screen for a sixth season, and creator Dan Harmon’s #1 priority is getting Glover to rejoin the cast.
“I told Yahoo to do everything they could do to get him back for as much as we can get him,” Harmon told TV Line at Comic-Con. “I am trading calls with Donald. Left him a voicemail saying, ‘That’s what I wanna talk to you about.’”
Things are still very much up in the air, though, as Harmon says the two have been “playing phone tag.” Still, it sounds like getting the multi-talent on board will be one of the creator’s major projects as he gets ready for the new season.
“The first thing I want is to get Donald Glover back,” he said. “I would do anything to make that happen.”
