LOS ANGELES, May 28 (UPI) -- "Community" creator Dan Harmon says he has been asked to return as show-runner for Season 5 of the Colorado-set sitcom.

Harmon was fired last season because of creative differences with Sony Pictures Television and NBC.

Zap2it.com said Harmon confirmed during a taping of his "Harmontown" podcast that he had been asked to return to "Community" as lead writer-producer.

Harmon requested his comment be cut out of the final podcast before adding: "Ah, [expletive] it. I don't care who knows!"

Zap2it.com said Harmon also joked that he would only go back to the show if former cast member Chevy Chase -- with whom he reportedly didn't get along -- also returned.

Starring Jim Rash, Joel McHale, Gillian Jacobs, Yvette Nicole Brown, Danny Pudi, Alison Brie, Donald Glover and Ken Jeong, the show is about a group of students and staff at a community college.

NBC hasn't commented on Harmon's remarks or announced his rehiring.
