It looks like Dan Harmon might be reloading for another round of community college paintball.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, the former showrunner of the NBC cult comedy "Community" is in talks to return for the show's upcoming fifth season.
The speculation that Harmon's potentially discussing a comeback began with HollyWookie.com, which reported that Harmon let the news slip himself while taping his podcast, "Harmontown."
Harmon created the fan-favorite and critically acclaimed series, but nonetheless had a rocky time as the comedy's showrunner. Toward the conclusion of "Community's" third season, Harmon leaked a now infamous voicemail purportedly from former series regular Chevy Chase - a move he later apologized for.
Not long after, NBC confirmed his exit as showrunner ahead of the fourth season, as the network announced it had brought on writers David Guarascio and Moses Port in Harmon's place.
Whether Harmon will actually return and in what capacity is still yet to be seen (a spokesperson for Sony Pictures Television had no official comment), but the potential for it alone is bound to make "Community" fans more excited than Abed was when he was an extra on "Cougar Town."
