Though Netflix is being inundated with fans requesting the streaming service pick up the recently canceled “Community,” a rep for the company disclosed Sunday that a pickup is not a possibility.

NBC canceled the Dan Harmon-produced show after five seasons, falling short of its fans’ quest for #SixSeasonsAndaMovie, as its fans took to declaring on social media. But since then, many have turned to Netflix to get another season in, particularly on Reddit.

One Reddit user on the /r/community board posted a rallying call for “Community” fans to use Netflix’s customer service live chat to urge the streaming service to pick up the show for a sixth season. Since then, “thousands” of fans have flooded the live chats, according to several customer service reps.

'Parks and Rec': One and done.

Some Netflix customer service reps seem to be encouraging the chatter, responding with hashtags such as “#savegreendale.” But a rep for the company said the streaming service isn’t in negotiations for the series.

A spokeswoman for Sony Pictures Television, which produces “Community,” declined comment.

Giving “Community” fans hope was the fact that Netflix has picked up a cult favorite before. “Arrested Development” found a new life on the streaming service after its three seasons were added to the Netflix library following its cancellation at Fox. The comedy found a huge following online, and convinced Netflix to create a fourth and final season of the show as an original.

The previous seasons of “Community” are on Hulu, not Netflix, as Sony struck a deal with Hulu long before the show’s cancellation.
