The Hollywood Reporter has learned that the NBC original comedy Community will return for a sixth season, but not on NBC.
Studio Sony Pictures Television has ordered 13 episodes of Community to air on Yahoo Screen in the fall. Original showrunner Dan Harmon will return, as well as stars Joel McHale,Gillian Jacobs, Yvette Nicole Brown, Danny Pudi, Alison Brie, Ken Jeong and Jim Rash.
After the comedy was cancelled by NBC in May, the show’s cult following took to the internet to air their displeasure. Clearly, the strong following helped revive the show.
Star Joel Mchale commented Adds Mc Hale, ” ‘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.”
