‘COMMUNITY’ getting SIXTH SEASON on Yahoo
Bruh! Bruh! Bruh! Reignite the Torches and burn away the Darkest Timeline. We hath been delivered.
Community is getting its sixth season. This fall, it’ll head to Yahoo Screen for a 13-episode run, saving the show after it was canceled by NBC in May. “I am very pleased that Community will be returning for its predestined sixth season on Yahoo,” series creator Dan Harmon says in a statement. “I look forward to bringing our beloved NBC sitcom to a larger audience by moving it online.” It appears as though the show will retain its half-hour format, and stars Joel McHale, Gillian Jacobs, Danny Pudi, Alison Brie, Ken Jeong, Yvette Nicole Brown, and Jim Rash will all return.
Community has been a cult hit since its debut in 2009, but it’s never seen particularly big viewership numbers, making it surprising that it’s even made it this far. But the series has poked fun at its likely demise, and its fans have long been campaigning for it to get “six seasons and a movie.” It didn’t look like Community was going to get there, but in a true eleventh-hour rescue, Yahoo and Sony struck a deal: contracts for the cast to return to the series were reported to expire today.
