'Community' Gets New Life on Yahoo
June 30, 2014
Community is officially getting a sixth season.
Multiple sources report that Dan Harmon's cult comedy is being revived for 13 new episodes launching on Yahoo Screen in the fall.
"I am very pleased that Community will be returning for its predestined sixth season on Yahoo," Harmon said in a statement. "I look forward to bringing our beloved NBC sitcom to a larger audience by moving it online. I vow to dominate our new competition. Rest easy, Big Bang Theory. Look out, Bang Bus!"
Stars Joel McHale, Gillian Jacobs, Yvette Nicole Brown, Danny Pudi, Alison Brie, Ken Jeong and Jim Rash are all reportedly returning for the next season.
"'The reports of our cancelation have been greatly exaggerated.' ---Mark Twain (The other version of this quote has been wrong for years). # SixSeasonsAndaMovie is real. Thank you Sony. Thank you Yahoo. Thank you Dan Harmon. And thank you to the greatest f%$#ing fans in the history of the human race. It's the internet. We can swear now."
This news follows the series' cancellation by NBC in May.
"Yahoo is all about connecting the best creators to the audiences who love their work," said Kathy Savitt, CMO of Yahoo. "Community has an incredibly passionate and loyal fan base who have fought hard to keep this amazing show alive. We couldn't be more excited to work with Dan, Joel, and the entire cast, as well as Sony, to deliver a great season 6."
