BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) — Donald Glover says his decision to not return to “Community” for its series finale on Yahoo! wasn’t a reflection of his time on the show.
“I just like endings,” he said Tuesday at an annual summer press event for TV critics.
“I think everything should have death clauses in them,” he said. “It’s important that things end. … I get really frustrated in the world because I see a lot of things that could be better but aren’t better because things haven’t died yet.”
Glover appeared on the comedy that also starred Joel McHale, Gillian Jacobs and Alison Brie. The show aired on NBC for six seasons until it was canceled and then picked up by Yahoo! at the last minute for its final season.

“I had so much fun on ‘Community.’ It wasn’t that I wanted to run away. … That’s why (series creator Dan Harmon) ended it. He likes endings too.”
Glover, in the meantime, remains busy. He’s a musician who performs under the name Childish Gambino. He also created, executive produces, directs and stars in a new series coming to FX called “Atlanta.” He plays an aspiring rapper. The show premieres in September.
