Worry not Community fans! Yahoo has swooped in and saved the day. Yahoo Screen has reached a deal with Sony Pictures Television to bring back the series for a 13-episode sixth season!
The news comes just as Sony’s contract with the cast was about to expire tomorrow, but fans can expect Dan Harmon to return as the showrunner along with Joel McHale, Gillian Jacobs, Danny Pudi, Alison Bri, Yvette Nicole Brown, Jim Rash, and Ken Jeong.
I am very pleased that Community will be returning for its predestined sixth season on Yahoo,” Dan Harmon said in a statement today. “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!”
“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.” Joel McHale also commented on the news today.
