American television sitcoms have been very popular among viewers for a long decade. There is a numerous list of examples to name. If you find American situational comedies much entertaining then you must have watched all six seasons of Community. The credit of creation behind this American TV sitcom goes to Dan Harmon.

The American sitcom includes a talented star cast including Joel McHale, Ken Jeong, Gillian Jacobs, Jim Rash, Alison Brie, and many others.

All episodes of Community run per the story template framed by Harmon. It is a technique used in the creation of a constructive and organized way of storytelling. For the initial 3 seasons, Harmon has been behind the role of showrunner. But coming into the fourth season, it lost pace among the fans. Even the critics gave it a thumbs down.
Witnessing the falling graph of Community, Dan Harmon was once again approached for the fifth season of this American sitcom. After this, NBC canceled the series. However, the show was brought back for the upcoming final 6th season by Yahoo! Screen. Even though Community went through a tougher phase in terms of ratings, the American sitcom gained an appreciation for its writing, meta-humor, acting, and direction.
It even managed to win the Primetime Emmy Award and 4 nominations. In 2012, Community also got the award for Best Comedy Series. Till now it has aired six seasons.
