Community to Return For Sixth Season
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 06.30.2014
Community will live to chase the six seasons and a movie dream, and all it will have now is the movie. Yahoo! Screen has ordered a thirteen-episode sixth season of the series, which was cancelled by NBC after its fifth season. The deal was almost literally down to the last-minute; the actor's contracts were set to expire tomorrow on July 1st if no deal could be made.
Series creator Dan Harmon said in the announcement, "I am very pleased that Community will be returning for its predestined sixth season on Yahoo. 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!"
Joel McHale, who stars as Jeff, added, "The reports of our cancellation have been greatly exaggerated." óMark 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."
Yahoo! CMO Kathy Savitt added, "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."
No word yet on when production will begin or the show may premiere, but fall is very possible.
