Stars pay tribute to axed comedy show Community

Stars, producers and fans have spoken out in support of Community, the much-loved cult US sitcom that was axed over the weekend.

Community, created by Dan Harmon, was ended by NBC over the weekend after five seasons, The Hollywood Reporter said, despite a Twitter campaign for '#sixseasonsandamovie'.

The show, led by stars Joel McHale and Alison Brie, was set in the fictional twon of Greendale, Colorado and followed a bunch of community school kids and their tutors.

It was popular because of its wry quips, pop culture references and occasional musical interludes, but suffered a tough season four after the controversial loss of Harmon.

Co-star Chevy Chase also quit, and original cast member Donald Glover starred in only a handful of episodes.

The stars of the show took to Twitter to pay tribute to the show, which lasted for 97 episodes since it began in 2009.
