Community season 6 will air on Yahoo Screen
It's done it. Community has survived cancellation and will air a sixth season on Yahoo's streaming service...
Those who watched nervously as the June 30th deadline (when the Community cast contracts were due to expire) approached can stop biting their fingernails. Community is indeed coming back for a sixth season, this time airing on on-demand streaming service, Yahoo Screen.
In a surprise last-minute deal, Sony has sold thirteen new episodes of the Dan Harmon sitcom to Yahoo. The series creator, Dan Harmon, made this 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!” (er, don't Google the latter if you're at work, it's pretty much how it sounds...).
Actor Joel McHale added, "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.”
NBC cancelled Community after its fifth season in March. This latest renewal takes the show one step closer to achieving that well-worn "six seasons and a movie" fan mantra.
