Sony Pictures Television announced on Monday that Community has been resurrected for a sixth season by Yahoo. The 13 episode sixth season will bow this fall on Yahoo Screen (an ad-supported video platform) and will feature the original cast members of cult comedy.
Series creator Dan Harmon, who is also set to return to executive produce season six, is looking forward to bring fans more Community episodes on a larger platform:
“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!”
Added series star Joel McHale:
“‘The reports of our cancellation 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.”
Harmon will be joined by Russ Krasnoff, Gary Foster and Chris McKenna who will all serve as executive producers for Community‘s sixth season.
