BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) - “Community” cast member Ken Jeong has a new gig on ABC but he’d be glad to see the comedy stay alive.

Yahoo gave the canceled NBC sitcom a sixth season that rolled out this spring, but whether there’s more to come is unclear. In a statement Tuesday, Yahoo said it and producer Sony Television continue to discuss “future opportunities.”

Jeong, taking part in a Q&A; session with TV critics to promote his new family comedy “Dr. Ken,” premiering Oct. 2 on ABC, said he was “completely in the dark” about the status of “Community.”

But he would “love to do a movie,” he said, and showered his co-stars with gratitude.

They made him “the actor that I am today. I wouldn’t be here as a lead on my own show,” Jeong said.

Joel McHale, part of the “Community” cast, offered an optimistic tweet Tuesday: “Easy sugar-bear, Community is not canceled.”

But in an interview last month with Metro Weekly, McHale was quoted as saying “no” when asked if it would get another season on Yahoo.
