After several weeks of negotiations, Community producer Sony Pictures TV just confirmed that there are deals in place for series creator/former showrunner Dan Harmon and former co-exec producer Chris McKenna to returning as executive producers for Season 5. Harmon will once again take the reins of the show as showrunner. The studio is not saying that the 13-episode fifth season will be the cult comedy’s final installment, though that’s what I’ve been hearing. Harmon announced his return to the show via Twitter a week ago. He was replaced as showrunner by David Guarascio and Moses Port in May 2012. As I reported, Guarascio and Port had a one-year deal and were approached about coming back but opted to move on.
